Right in the heart of Zurich - District 1

The Schifflände Bürkliplatz in Zurich offers an exclusive location on the shores of Lake Zurich. With its excellent accessibility and breathtaking panorama of the Alps, this place is a popular destination. Here, you will find restaurants, cafes, and bars that serve culinary delights from around the world. Explore the lake with a boat tour or enjoy relaxing walks along the shoreline. The Schifflände Bürkliplatz is the perfect place to escape from everyday life and appreciate the beauty of nature. Furthermore, the Expovina Wine Exhibition on the wine ships adds a unique touch to this experience.

Expovina on Bürkliplatz began as a small wine fair in 1954 and quickly developed into a renowned event. The idea of organising the wine exhibition on the boats at Bürkliplatz proved to be a success and gave Expovina a unique charm. Today, Expovina on Bürkliplatz is one of the largest and most renowned wine exhibitions in the world.


Exhibitor Information - Wine Ships


Eligible for participation are wine producers and wine merchants who have a branch in Switzerland and are registered with the Federal Wine Control. In order to guarantee a wide and high-quality wine exhibition, additional criteria such as current availability of stands, provenance and quality of the offered wines (e.g. medal wins at the Expovina Wine Trophy), as well as service offerings in the aftersales area (delivery deadlines after the exhibitions) are further selection criteria.



Stand Design

The stands on the wine ships of Expovina are not only functional and aesthetically pleasing, but also designed with sustainability in mind. Emphasis is placed on the use of environmentally friendly materials such as wood during the design process. Additionally, the stands are regularly refurbished and improved to extend their lifespan and conserve resources. The introduction of LED lighting contributes to energy efficiency. In collaboration with Aroma AG, work is being done to develop modernized stands, further strengthening the sustainability aspect and optimizing the wine tasting experience for visitors.

Additional Stand Equipment Services

A wide range of additional services can be obtained through the exhibitor portal to enhance the design of your booth. This includes products such as wine climate cabinets, power connections, or various accessories for wine tastings.


Exhibitor Portal

All exhibitors gain access to a personalized exhibitor portal. Within this portal, exhibitors can easily manage their essential contact details, such as billing addresses and marketing contacts, while also conveniently booking all additional services in a dedicated shop.
