The Vinexpo Symposium
In association with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Regional Council, and for the very first time, Vinexpo Bordeaux is organising a day entirely dedicated to a single key topic aimed at finding solutions to the challenges faced by the sector.
The 2019 edition of the Vinexpo Symposium will address the impact of climate change on the wine and spirits sector, a real challenge for the future of the industry. The scientific, technical and economic aspects will be addressed in a series of talks held throughout the day on 14 May. The programme for this extraordinary day will be published in February 2019.
La Grande Dégustation
New initiative for 2019!
Being in direct contact with consumers is a way of accessing instant market feedback and gaining a better understanding of their expectations. On this basis, wine lovers and members of the public will, for the first time, be able to sample a selection of the international wines and spirits on offer at Vinexpo Bordeaux, at a unique new tasting event* called “La Grande Dégustation”, to be held at the Palais de la Bourse on Sunday 12 May.
Already an exhibitor at Vinexpo Bordeaux 2019 and like the sound of this new opportunity? Log into your exhibitor area online for full details of this new initiative.
*Vinexpo exclusive: purchasing a ticket for “La Grande Dégustation” gives the visitor access to a time slot chosen beforehand. The format is similar to a tasting lab in that visitors are seated with producers presenting their wine selections in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
In terms of figures, WOW! at Vinexpo Bordeaux 2017 brought together 119 exhibitors and more than 5,600 visitors over four days. Boosted by its 2017 success, and after Vinexpo Hong Kong in 2018 and Vinexpo New York in March 2019, the WOW! World of Organic Wines concept is returning to Vinexpo Bordeaux in 2019, with the same brief – to present an international organic and biodynamic wine & spirits offer.
From 13 to 16 May 2019, come and meet trade producers and buyers who share the same passion, in an informal setting ideally suited to tastings, at the centre of an exhibition that draws exhibitors and visitors from all over the world.
Les Diners du Palais
