The 2017 edition of SIMEI was held from 11 to 15 September in Munich as a result of the successful partnership with drinktec, the international trade fair of equipment for beverages and liquid food. Through this union, which enhances the complementary nature of the two events, a unique, transversal platform was created, offering operators and visitors the best of technology.  SIMEI implemented drinktec’s proposal by creating a hub over an area of twenty thousand square metres that is high-tech, exclusive and specialised in the wine industry. As usual, it brought together the best technology operators in the wine industry who were exhibiting machinery and equipment for production, conditioning, storage, bottling and packaging as well as logistics and services.
