For the first time, SIMEI@drinktec, the international exhibition for winery and bottling machinery, will take place as part of drinktec, the World’s Leading Trade Fair for the Beverage and Liquid Food Industry.

SIMEI@drinktec will be offering solutions exclusively for the wine industry in two halls (C2 and C3) across an exhibition area of 20,000 square meters. Over 200 exhibitors will be presenting all kinds of machine technology and equipment for wine production and wine processing, including packaging solutions.

Thanks to the cooperation with SIMEI, it is now possible to address winegrowers and wine producers in a more targeted manner. SIMEI thus completes drinktec’s offering with specific solutions exclusively for the wine industry.

At SIMEI@drinktec, you will be able to find large wineries, who live mainly off exports, just as much as small wine growers, who are more likely to produce for regional demand.

Although drinktec has already been offering technologies for the wine industry up to now, “this has been more about bottling and packaging technology on a large scale, and equipment that is designed for large volumes,” explains Petra Westphal, the project group leader responsible for drinktec 2017.

“SIMEI is the perfect extension to our current offer. We, therefore, have more than 500 exhibitors, whose offer is completely or at least partly geared to the wine industry.”

Held every four years in Munich, drinktec is regarded as the number one platform for world premieres. Manufacturers showcase their latest technologies for the production, filling, and packaging of all kinds of beverage and liquid food – including raw materials and logistics solutions.

Drinktec 2017, which will be held at the Exhibition Center of Messe München from September 11 to 15, 2017, will attract around 1,700 exhibitors and some 70,000 visitors.

SIMEI, the world’s leading trade fair for wine technology, will be held as an integral part of drinktec for the first time in 2017. Organized by the Unione Italiana Vini (UIV), the trade fair has a long tradition. It has been held in Milan since 1963.
