The North Coast Wine Industry Expo was established to provide Winery and Vineyard professionals in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake, Solano and Marin counties access to the latest products and services available. The event will take place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds and will include a traditional trade show featuring up to 180 of the industry’s best suppliers and service professionals. Exhibitors will be providing a “Sneak Peek” into new products and services planned for 2013 and/or offering special pricing on end of year purchases.
In addition to the trade show, a day-long conference featuring four sessions will be presented by leaders in Viticulture, Marketing, Production, and Distributor Management. Each discussion will emphasize latest trends along with information that every industry professional needs to be better prepared for a successful upcoming year.
The world’s largest trade fair for top-quality German wines – the VDP Weinbörse – opens its doors on 28 and 29 April 2013 in the Rheingoldhalle in Mainz. Some 170 VDP estates will be on hand to meet with their most important customers, i.e. the wholesale/retail trade, hospitality industry and exporters.
