Vinexpo Bordeaux, France

13-16 May

Vinexpo Bordeaux has unveiled a host of new features for its 20th edition this year. Shifted to the earlier time of 13-16 May, the show is expected to draw 40,000 visitors from 150 countries, and 2,000 exhibitors. The Bordeaux convention and exhibition centre is being renovated, and this year’s Vinexpo will be held in a new 16,500 metre squared facility that has replaced Hall 2 (at the cost of €37 million, or £33m). Furthermore, visitors at Vinexpo will be able to use the Vinexpo Citypass, which gives free access to Bordeaux’s tram and bus network, as well as free entrance to the Cité du Vin and some other museums.

Christophe Navarre, president of the Vinexpo supervisory board, said: “Vinexpo Bordeaux is packed with exciting attractions that we will be promoting intensively abroad. Increasing the number of buyer contacts and the event’s commercial role, offering insights into today’s key challenges and shining a light on French hospitality will confirm Vinexpo Bordeaux as the industry’s strategic trade show, where the future of the business is built. To deliver this strategy, we have decided to add several new features.”

Among the expanded content for the show is Symposium Vinexpo, which will look at the challenges facing the global wine industry, such as climate change and scientific, technical and economic developments, while Les Diners du Palais will allow exhibitors to invite guests to dine at the Palais de la Bourse with their own wines, and enjoying meals prepared by top chefs.
