Following the momentum of the inaugural Wine Paris event in February 2019—an initiative that successfully combined the Vinisud and VinoVision Paris trade shows in the same location—a 2020 follow up event has been announced for February 10 to 12 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. The exhibition, timed to attract both international and French buyers for the presentation of the 2019 vintage, will showcase an array of producers from France as well as Algeria, Argentina, Croatia, Italy, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, and other countries. Mediterranean climate producers will be grouped together, as will cool climate wines producers, in order to help visitors navigate the event. Wine Paris and Vinexpo Paris will be held jointly for the first time in 2020, presenting a major international business opportunity for wine professionals.
In addition to the impressive roster of French and international exhibitors, Wine Paris will present a full program of trade-focused master classes, round table discussions, and workshops, along with networking events hosted throughout the city. ”Les Wine Talks,” themed programs hosted by experts, will focus on a different topic each day. On opening day, Delicious Day will center on wine, food, and flavor; the second day of the event, Wonderful Day, will look at trends in sustainability and eco-friendly certifications; Creative Day will take place on the third day, with a focus on industry innovations, from start-ups to new grape varieties to advances in winemaking. Another program initiative, So International, will address issues related to international trade in French wines and exporting in the global marketplace. Panel discussions will bring together leading market consultants for open dialogue on the topic.
