Vinexpo announces major New York exhibition March 5-6, 2018

Vinexpo New York will feature two days of business meetings, tastings, conferences, master classes and networking events.

The leading international exhibition for wine and spirits professionals is bound for the U.S. with Vinexpo New York, March 5-6, 2018. Produced in association with Diversified Communications, the show is expected to host exhibitors from all wine-producing regions around the globe to the world’s largest wine-consuming market – a distinction the U.S. has held since 2010. Show organizers aim to propose a new type of event for the wine and spirits industry, which will be adapted to the fast-evolving US market. Vinexpo New York will be open exclusively to the national trade. Targeted visitors are importers, distributors, retailers, brokers, e-commerce, on-trade buyers and sommeliers.

Held in the Javits Center’s 45,000-square-foot, glass-enclosed River Pavilion, Vinexpo New York will feature two days of business meetings, tastings, conferences, master classes and networking events. Its exhibition will showcase the newest wines and spirits introduced to the U.S. market.

“The time is right to bring Vinexpo to the U.S. market, which leads the world in wine consumption and whose influence only continues to grow,” said Guillaume Deglise, CEO of Vinexpo, which has held bi-annual exhibitions in Bordeaux since 1981 and has expanded into Asia since 1998, with shows in Hong Kong and Tokyo. “Vinexpo New York will present American buyers with an unmatched opportunity to experience, on their own turf, wines and spirits from international markets, including a number of products that have never before been available in the U.S. market.”

“We’re excited to combine forces with Vinexpo to bring the international world of wine and spirits to New York – the trade capital of the U.S.,” added Mary Larkin, Executive Vice President of Diversified Communications. A leading international media company based in Portland, Maine, Diversified produces trade events across the globe for a wide range of industries.

A catalyst for international wine and spirits business, France-based Vinexpo draws thousands of exhibitors and tens of thousands of buyers, importers, sommeliers, distributors, retailers and other qualified professionals to its exhibitions in Bordeaux and Asia. Its June 2017 show in Bordeaux will be no exception, with as many as 2,300 exhibitors and 48,000 trade visitors from 151 countries expected to descend on the city’s Parc des Expositions, June 18-21.

Vinexpo New York attendee registration will open in September 2017. For more information, visit www.vinexponewyork.com.
