Vinexpo New York confirms 2020 show dates

Vinexpo has confirmed dates for its 2020 edition in New York, following the success of its expanded 2019 show in the city last week.

Vinexpo New York 2020 will take place from 2-3 March

Vinexpo New York made its debut in 2018, with a second, larger edition hosted in New York, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from 4-5 March.

The show featured more than 400 exhibitors from 26 countries and 3,000 wine and spirits professionals – including a mix of importers, distributors, wholesalers, buyers and e-commerce specialists from over 40 US states and seven Canadian provinces.

Its conference programme included six sessions addressing issues such as global climate change and its impact on the wine industry, emerging technologies in the wine and spirits industry, and trends in the US wine market.

The 2019 edition also saw several new additions, including the WOW! World of Organic Wines pavilion, which hosted more than 20 organic wine producers from five countries; a Wine & Spirit Education Trust Pop-Up classroom; Uncork New York, sponsored by the New York Wine & Grape Foundation; and the Wine Spectator 90+ Showcase and Tasting Bar, highlighting wines to have earned 90 points or higher in its blind tasting reviews.

Cédric Duquenoy, sales director of France’s LGI Wines, said: “It was so wonderful to see the exhibition’s growth this year – there were even more customers and more large retailers. We were so pleased.

“This a big deal for us, and we want to continue to invest in the U.S. market. I believe in the Vinexpo concept because there isn’t another US wine market like it, and New York is a great choice, too.”

Organisers have confirmed that the trade fair will return to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in 2020 for a third edition from 2-3 March, with attendee registration set to open in September.

“Strong attendance figures—and the quality of those attendees—at this year’s show underscore that in just one year, Vinexpo New York has already established itself as an essential event among the most important buyers and decision-makers in the U.S. wine and spirits market,” said Mary Larkin, president of Diversified Communications USA, which produces the show.

“We’re thrilled with the results of this year’s Vinexpo New York, which validate the momentum we felt in the wake of last year’s inaugural show,” added Vinexpo commercial director Mathieu Vanhalst. “Its success reflects the combined efforts of the Vinexpo and Diversified teams and the ever-growing importance of the U.S. market on the global wine and spirits industry.”
