Wine2Wine to focus on inclusion in first digital eventBy db_staff
Greater inclusion and women in the wine industry will be the focus of trade show Wine2Wine Business Forum, which will take place in an all-digital format for the first time next week.
Over 50 online sessions and more than 70 international speakers will descend on the event’s online platform between 23 and 24 November. The organisers said they have recruited speakers from broad cultural backgrounds, and have also broadened the discussion to markets that rarely see inclusion in wine events. In addition, by going digital the wine2wine Business Forum will allow ticket holders and speakers to connect, network and learn from any location in the world
Among the experts who will be on the virtual stage of the forum for the first time, there are: Sandra Taylor, President and CEO of Sustainable Business International; Stephanie Gallo, Chief Marketing Officer of E.& J. Gallo Winery; Rania Zayyat, founder of Wonder Women of Wine; Jermaine Stone, founder and CEO of Cru Luv Wine; and Kodjo Adovor, founder and sommelier of the Africa Wine Club. Among the speakers who will hold the 4 key sessions are: wine writers Julia Coney and Elaine Chukan Brown, journalists Felicity Carter and Rebecca Hopkins, and two Masters of Wine, Jeannie Cho Lee MW and Sarah Heller MW.
The wine2wine Business Forum, which celebrates its 7th birthday this year, has created a series of paths to facilitate participants in exploring the themes on which the next edition will be based. These routes are visible on the programme in the form of “tracks”, such as those highlighting “diversity and inclusion” and “Post-COVID Era” discussions. You can navigate the full programme on the website of the event (https://www.wine2wine.net/programme/?lang=en). Early bird Tickets will be available until November 13th; ticket sales end on November, 20th.
