Hong Kong, 18th May: The first ProWine Asia in Hong Kong concluded last week. As part of HOFEX 2017, the event was held from 8th to 11th May at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

Jointly organised by Messe Düsseldorf China and UBM HKES Limited, the organiser of HOFEX, ProWine Asia in Hong Kong featured 310 exhibitors from 21 countries and regions showcasing their latest and most popular wines and spirits. A total of 12,184 trade visitors from 67 countries and regions attended the four-day show and 35% were from outside Hong Kong.

Marius Berlemann, Global Head Wines & Spirits – ProWein, stated, “Many exhibitors from our international trade networks have placed expansion in Asia-Pacific as priority. ProWine Asia’s development across both major trading centres of Hong Kong and Singapore offer pivotal connections to generate new business for our exhibitors. We are very pleased with initial feedback from participants at the Hong Kong debut this year.”

The next edition of ProWine Asia will be held in Singapore next year, running from 24th to 27th April. ProWine Asia will return to Hong Kong, again at HKCEC, from 7th to 10th May 2019.
