The staff at Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris constantly liaises with government agencies and health authorities to monitor development of the Covid-19 crisis so that it can anticipate and implement all the recommended arrangements for the 2022 edition.

Our health protocol focuses on four priorities:

Safety and protecting the health of all participants,
Compliance with the regulations published by the government and health authorities,
Communicating with all participants about public health measures and the resources we are deploying,
The public health code of conduct meeting the event industry’s standards determined by the Government



As of February 15, in order to have a valid pass to enter the event, you must present one of these three proofs:

– A certificate of vaccination proving you have had a complete course of vaccination: the booster has to be administered within a maximum of 4 months after the end of your initial course of vaccination (except for the Janssen vaccine where the second dose should have been given within 8 weeks of the first injection and the booster dose within 4 months of the second injection).
– A certificate of recovery from Covid-19 that is at least 11 days old and less than 4 months old.
– A certificate of medical contraindication to vaccination. The people concerned are thus issued by their doctor with a CERFA N° 16183*01 document that can be presented in places, services, establishments and events where the “vaccination pass” is required.

Important information : European nationals and some other countries have a digital Covid certificate that is accepted in France: you can present the QR code of the EU digital Covid certificate directly (or the NHS certificate for the United Kingdom) or scan it in the ‘TousAntiCovid’ application.

The current health protocol will be executed with utmost rigour in order to ensure the event runs smoothly while providing the comfort and conviviality expected by all attendees. Thus, the health measures already well adopted in our daily life remain in force : presenting a vaccinal pass is mandatory to access the venue, wearing a mask is compulsory for all participants as is physical distancing. Hand disinfection is required and hydroalcoholic solutions will be at your disposal. Cleaning of the premises and the collection of waste will also be stepped up.
To ensure compliance with barrier gestures and limit the risk of exposure to Covid-19, the dematerialization of media and payments will be favored, as will be the circulation of flows, differentiated at entrances.

Dedicated teams will be available throughout the event to provide you with information, respond to your needs and guide you at best.

These conditions will allow you and all attendees to fully enjoy the range of events offered by the 2022 exhibition, marked by key areas and highlights.

Our teams are rallying to offer support for all attendees in the best possible conditions and provide an event that meets your expectations, both in terms of safety and comfort. We are available to field any questions you may have and very much look forward to greeting you in Paris in a few weeks’ time.
