Zo dat was ProWein 2016. 55.000 bezoekers en 6200 standhouders. ‘The largest exhibitor nations this year included Italy with 1,500, France with 1,300), Germany with 1,000, Spain with 550, Austria with 320, Portugal with 300 and Overseas with 600. Added to this were some 420 exhibitors from 30 countries with their special spirits. Exhibitors from a total of 59 nations attended the event’. Aldus het afsluitende persbericht. Even verderop: Siobhan Thompson, CEO at Wines of South Africa (WOSA), echoed this sentiment:
‘ProWein is the most important trade fair for our South African producers – primarily due to its great global relevance. ProWein gives us the opportunity to come into contact with all key contacts from throughout the world. This was also confirmed again this year.’ Winebusiness.nl was uiteraard ook aanwezig en had in drie dagen 26 kilometer in de benen, ontmoette menig Nederlands importeur en vele andere Nederlandse wine professionals. Hierover volgt later verslaglegging.
