Top wine and spirit trade fairs of 2019

Vinexpo New York

4-5 March

Following the success of its debut show in 2018, Vinexpo New York will return to the Javits Center in Manhattan in March with an expanded show and a schedule
of new events and “unequalled” networking opportunities. Last year’s event showcased 500 exhibitors from 23 countries, drawing an attendance of 3,446, and also facilitated more than 1,000 scheduled meetings between attendees and exhibitors via its One to Wine Meetings.

This year, the show will take place in a space measuring 116,000 square foot – almost double the size of 2018. Also new in 2019 will be the introduction of Vinexpo’s established Wow! World of Organic Wines exhibit – a tasting area that is dedicated entirely to organic and biodynamic wines and spirits from producers around the world. A series of masterclasses and conference sessions will also cover current trends and issues.

Among the highlights are masterclasses on the global production of Grenache, the wines of Serbia and the wines of Austria, in addition to tutored tastings run by French exporter Confrérie des Domaines and family-owned Cognac producer Sarl de Bibardies. The show’s free One to Wine Meetings matchmaking service will also return, offering registered attendees a bespoke schedule of meetings.

“As last year’s exhibit showed, the demand to break into the US market is greater than ever before,” said Christophe Navarre, president of the Vinexpo supervisory board. “With a list of exhibitors that is constantly expanding, Vinexpo New York will once again be the single best opportunity for American importers, distributors, sommeliers and other trade professionals to meet hundreds of international producers in one location,” he added.
