The North Coast Wine Industry Expo (WIN Expo) has quickly become an integral event for the North Coast wine industry and will be held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in two adjacent buildings, the Hall of Flowers and Grace Pavilion. Now in its fifth year, the Expo continues to draw the highest caliber exhibitors and over 3,000 attendees making it the second largest wine industry trade show in North America.
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 nearly 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 will be presented by leaders in Viticulture, Production, Finance, Tasting Room Sales 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 show takes place on Thursday, December 1, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
On May 7, 2014 The Wine Industry Network (WIN) announced the launch of the U.S. Wine & Beverage Expo (USBevX), a new annual trade show and conference focused exclusively on the Wine, Beer, Cider and Distilled Spirits industries.
"Our objective is simple; we want to establish an annual world-class business event for Wine, Beer, Cider and Distilled 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.
USBevX will accommodate more than 130 exhibitors and over 1,000 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 event will take place February 22 - 24, 2017 at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C., USA.
