Top wine and spirit trade fairs of 2019

Vinitaly, Verona, Italy

7-10 April

Vinitaly is the biggest international trade-only show in Italy, and will mark its 53rd edition in 2019, celebrating Italy’s vinous virtues. Each year, around 130,000 international visitors, and more than 4,000 exhibitors, descend on the historic city to taste wines from every corner of Italy, from the Veneto and Campania to Tuscany and Sicily. Last year, organisers reported an increase in visitors from key countries including the US (a rise of 11%), China (34%), Scandinavia (17%) and Poland (27%). Overall, 128,000 visitors from 143 countries attended, with attendance by accredited international buyers up by 6% to 32,000.

As of 2016, organisers have permanently separated business-to-business and business-to-consumer content to expand services and multiply opportunities for meetings between exhibitors and international buyers during the show, while moving all consumer-related aspects to the ‘Vinitaly and the City’ off-show event in the city.

“Vinitaly 2018 confirmed its dedicated vocation to business and the promotion of the wine world,” said Maurizio Danese, president of Veronafiere. “This is the right way forward, as identified with determination during the 50th anniversary edition. The show in the Exhibition Centre is increasingly focused on professionals, while the off-show event for wine lovers in the city has also grown considerably,” Danese added.

Vinitaly runs alongside Sol&Agrifood, the quality agro-food show, and Enolitech, which focuses on technology for olive oil and wine production, further expanding the show’s offer.
