Covid restrictions largely lifted
- No more 2 or 3G (vaccinated, recovered, tested) restrictions anymore
- Voluntary hygiene measures provide added safety

Matchmaking: “Dating App“ for wine and spirits professionals

The Covid restrictions of the past two pandemic years can now largely be dropped under current legal provisions. In concrete terms this means for the forthcoming ProWein from 15 to 17 May: the 2G and 3G restrictions and strict social distancing rules no longer apply. “After this long pandemic period the focus is now on a new departure because the signs of the time all point in the same direction – namely an active resumption of business life. International trade fairs play an essential key role here. Our additional hygiene and infection protection standards provide a high degree of protection on site and a sense of safety,” stresses Michael Degen, Executive Director at Messe Düsseldorf.

Matchmaking: networking made easy
Networking is just as much part of ProWein as labels are part of wine bottles. But how do the exhibiting wine and spirits suppliers on the one hand, and buyers from retail and hospitality, on the other, actually get together? Here ProWein’s smart Matchmaking Tool provides the ideal platform for making new contacts in a targeted manner – one that’s as fast and easy as a dating App.
