ProWine China 2014 on Course for Expansion
50% more space
Networking event “ProWine in the City” with big tasting area
Following the successful premiere of ProWine China – 570 wine and spirit producers from 30 nations presented themselves to 7,650 trade visitors from China and Asia in Shanghai in November 2013 – exhibitor demand for the next event from 12 to 14 November 2014 is high. For this reason, the fair will occupy further space in a second exhibition hall this year. Furthermore, an international tasting area will supplement the evening event “ProWine in the City” organised by ProWine China and Magnum Night.
The first edition of ProWine China last November was praised highly by exhibitors and visitors for its international flair and professionalism. The current level of registrations for ProWine China 2014 now confirms the success of the premiere: the large majority of exhibitors are expanding their trade fair presence in Shanghai – such as the country participations from Austria, Germany, Italy and Mexico. Wines of South Africa will even be featuring at the fair with twice as much exhibition space as in 2013. On some 800 square metres France is the largest country participation at ProWine China 2014. Ranking second and third on the size stakes are the national joint stands of Argentina and Spain. With expanded exhibition space more than 60 Spanish winegrowers will participate at ProWine China 2014, therewith showcasing the largest presentation of Spanish wines in Mainland China.
Alongside the large country participations there will be numerous individual exhibitors featured at the exhibition centre in Shanghai, including ones from Australia, Canada, Chile, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Sweden, the Ukraine and the USA. Organisers are once again expecting exhibitors from a total of some 30 nations. Chinese distributors have also secured their space at the leading trade fair for wines and spirits in China.
International wine and spirits producers seeking business links in the growing wine market in China who have not yet registered at ProWine China 2014 should reserve the last available square metres as soon as possible. Visitors to ProWine China are importers, wholesalers and retailers, F&B managers and sommeliers from China and Asia; 52% of them are in top management positions and directly involved in purchasing decisions. Exhibitors can choose from four different stand packages for their appearance at the fair – from purely stand space alone through to a complete package including furniture, lighting and a storeroom. Depending on the package selected, prices per square metre range from US$ 410 to US$ 530. All registration forms and contact data can be found at www.prowinechina.com. ProWein in Düsseldorf from 23 to 25 March will also feature a ProWine China Info Lounge in Hall 7.1 (Stand B05).
