Vinexpo, the international wine and spirits exhibition created in 1981, has established itself over the years as the key event for major international operators in the wine and spirits sector.
In 2013, the global wines and spirits industry – of which Vinexpo’s exhibitors are a part – was worth US$ 420 billion. The market remains buoyant, with global consumption continually rising, but there are sharp contrasts. It is a changing picture, and there are many uncertainties. When deciding on future strategies, we need to be able to count on reliable partners. Taking part in Vinexpo, is to be in the right place at the right time. The show is a catalyst for international business with 48,000 trade visitors from 150 countries at the Bordeaux show and 18,000 Asian buyers in Hong Kong. On the exhibitor front, the number and diversity of nationalities confirm the show’s planetary reach, its key role as a meeting place for the sector, and its leadership.
