EUROVINO 2024: Pre-event in March 2023 offers a foretaste of the new trade show for wine

Guests can look forward to a multifaceted mix including the presentation of the new trade show concept, the announcement of the winners of the FAIR WINE AWARD and the interactive presentation of new wines. The event will also feature a symposium on the future topics of the wine industry. An evening event bringing together the who's who of the industry will complete the pre-event.

EUROVINO pre-event offers a wide range of highlights

As one of the highlights of the pre-event exhibitors will present their stands, showing all-in packages in different formats, joint stands and individual stands. Potential new exhibitors will thus be able to experience the performance of the new concept on site and get information about booking options from the Messe Karlsruhe team. In addition, the pre-event will give a foretaste of the "Digital Supported Wine Exchange": This is a new online platform that will showcase a broad variety of wines. To create an excellent link between the digital and real world, these wines can be tasted on site.

What's more, wines matching the future topics of the wine industry will be showcased in a separate tasting zone in the large event hall of Messe Karlsruhe. Visitors can sample the winning wines from the new FAIR WINE AWARD, dedicated to sustainable wine production, new resistant grape varieties as well as historical and traditional grape varieties. The winners of the different categories of the FAIR WINE AWARD will be announced at the EUROVINO pre-event on 6 March 2023, where they will receive their certificates and awards. The FAIR WINE AWARD honours those wines that guarantee 360° sustainable production.

The EUROVINO pre-event will reflect diversity and future-oriented concepts. In doing so, the diversity of European winegrowers, wine marketers and the wine trade will be the centre of the event programme on 6 March 2023. More than 12 renowned speakers will shed light on the future topics in panel lectures, discussions, speaker corners and tastings. "The event will focus on wines of the future, on climate change, nature and environmental protection with their impact on changing consumer behaviour. Messe Karlsruhe is thus realising a long overdue vision of the future for an innovative wine market", comments the Chairman of the Advisory Board of the EUROVINO trade fair, Dr. Hermann Pilz. The pre-event ends in the evening with a get-together, offering an opportunity for informal exchange and a culinary conclusion to the day. The patron of the event is Peter Hauk, Minister for Food, Rural Areas and Consumer Protection in Baden-Württemberg, who has already confirmed his attendance for 6 March 2023.

David Köhler, Project Manager of EUROVINO, says: "We are very pleased to be able to offer potential exhibitors and trade visitors and partners of EUROVINO 2024 the opportunity to get to know the team, Messe Karlsruhe, various stand construction systems and also the content of the new trade fair on site at the pre-event in March 2023, thus creating space for mutual exchange and suggestions".

Messe Karlsruhe expands portfolio and strategically positions itself on the topic of wine

On 29 June 2022, Messe Karlsruhe invited numerous wine experts to discuss in depth the possibilities of a market accompaniment about wine. Under the expert leadership of the long-standing editor-in-chief of the leading wine magazine "Weinwirtschaft", Dr Hermann Pilz, the meeting advanced to the founding meeting of an advisory board for a new trade fair for wine. The newly founded advisory board unanimously decided to establish a trade fair format at the Karlsruhe location under the name EUROVINO, which is aimed decidedly at the professional world. Dr Hermann Pilz comments: "For some time now, it has been apparent that producers of high-quality and innovative wines from the German and European markets lack an independent, focused platform. The idea is to offer producers and marketers from Germany and neighbouring countries a well-structured range of high-quality wines. A supporting programme will provide visitors from the wine trade, food retail and gastronomy with valuable insights that will help them in their everyday work to design innovative and high-quality wine assortments and thus stimulate their sales."

Frank Thieme, divisional director of Messe Karlsruhe, adds: "The top-class advisory board encouraged us to take this step for the wine industry. We are very pleased to be able to offer the market a solid, carefully designed and affordable trade fair in the heart of Germany's largest wine-growing regions."

The importance of focusing on the market and its needs in the conception of the fair is underlined by David Köhler, EUROVINO project manager: "Only through intensive personal contact with wine producers and buyers can the wishes of the market be taken on board. We are in very close contact with the industry in order to incorporate everything that is really important for our exhibitors and visitors into the concept of EUROVINO." In addition to Dr Hermann Pilz, the advisory board members include e.g. Claudia Stern from "Wine & Glory", Michael Kugel from the association "Die Weinreferenten", Petra Neuber from the association of ecologically working wineries "ECOVIN", Martin Schmidt from "Friedrich Kiefer KG Privatkellerei und Weingut", Holger Willy from "Rolf Willy GmbH", Martin Kutscher from "Scheck-In - Einkaufs - Center Achern GmbH", Felix Riegel from "Peter Riegel Weinimport GmbH" and Barbara Wanner from "Organize Communications GmbH". Advisory board members thus represent the most important target groups in the wine industry, both on the supplier and customer side, and stand for consulting, expertise and networking in the respective region.

Another specialist event on the subject of "wine" - the Winzer-Service-Messe - has been in the guest fair portfolio since 2015 and pays tribute to the great expertise of Messe Karlsruhe on this subject. The Winzer-Service-Messe is Germany's largest trade fair for viticulture and cellar management and will open its doors from 8 - 10 February 2023 for what is already its fifth edition. Around 500 exhibitors will present themselves to the trade public on more than 28,000 square metres.

In addition, RendezVino, organised by Messe Karlsruhe, has been offering wine lovers wine trends to taste, experience and take away at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre in the spring for 30 years. At the next RendezVino from 24 to 26 March 2023, visitors from the target group of end consumers can expect an even larger number of exhibiting vintners and will be complemented by numerous manufactories for exquisite products all about enjoyment and taste.
