The North Coast Wine Industry Expo (WIN Expo) has quickly become an integral event for the North Coast wine industry and will be held on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in two adjacent buildings, The Hall of Flowers and Grace Pavilion.

The Expo provides Winery and Vineyard professionals in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake, Solano and Marin counties access to the latest products and services during a time of year, when traditionally vineyard and winery operations are planning their budgets for the upcoming season. The event includes a robust trade show featuring over 300 of the industry's best suppliers and service professionals showcasing the most current, innovative new products and services and/or offering pricing specials on end of year purchases.
In addition to the trade show, a day-long conference featuring six sessions will be presented by leaders in Viticulture, Production, Finance, Tasting Room Sales and Distributor Management.

On May 7, 2014 The Wine Industry Network (WIN) announced the launch of the U.S. Beverage Industry Expo, a new trade show and conference focused exclusively on the Wine, Craft Beer, Cider and Spirits industries.
"Our objective is simple; we want to establish an annual world-class business event for Wine, Craft Beer, Cider and Spirits professionals," said George Christie, President and CEO of Wine Industry Network. "These four industries are perfectly aligned to benefit from one combined trade show. This event will feature the best suppliers showcasing their products and services and an educational conference where attendees can listen to and learn from proven winners," adds Christie.
The 1st year event will accommodate more than 300 exhibitors and 3,000 total attendees. Educational sessions will focus on all four categories and topics will include discussions on wine, beer, cider, and spirits production, marketing, sales, finance, and viticulture. Christie adds "nowhere in North America are these four industries growing faster than throughout the Eastern U.S. and although the specific products are different, there's a lot of common ground. They share the same suppliers and in many cases, especially with regard to government regulations, the same challenges. They also share one more thing, a creative passion to produce the best products in the world and we're incredibly proud to support that."
The trade event will take place February 16th - 18th, 2016 at the Wardman Park Marriott in Washington DC.
