Top wine and spirit trade fairs of 2019

TFWA Global Summit, Cannes, France

30 September – 5 October

Dedicated to the world’s global travel retail market, the annual TFWA World Exhibition and Conference combines a showcase of premium wine and spirits with a raft of networking opportunities.

Taking place in Cannes, each year thousands of drinks professionals flock to the event for a week of networking and business, balanced with a programme of lavish beachside events befitting of its location. Last year’s event saw visitor numbers top 7,000 for the first time – an increase of 3% on 2017.
Conferences are designed to give visitors an insight into the macro-economic factors affecting the global travel retail market, with previous speakers including former US secretary of state Colin Powell and former secretaries-general of the United Nations Kofi Annan and Ban Ki-moon.

Elsewhere, the TFWA Digital Village – introduced in 2017 – allows delegates to hear more about the latest technological advances. The show’s ONE2ONE meeting service helps visitors plan private meetings with key players worldwide.

The event is also big on fun, hosting a number of glamorous networking events, including a golf tournament, a charity run and a jovial pétanque tournament, not forgetting the annual opening cocktail party at the Carlton Beach hotel. The event is capped off with the dazzling
Le Premium event. Last year guests were treated to a performance from Broadway stars The Illusionists.
