IBWSS sets date for London debut

10th March, 2017 by Annie Hayes

Leading online marketing platform Beverage Trade Network is to launch the annual trade show and conference International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show (IBWSS) in London next year.

San Francisco-based trade show IBWSS is to launch in London in 2018

Open to trade professionals only, IBWSS London will give supermarkets, retailers, restaurants, distilleries and other buyers an international platform to source bulk spirits and wines, as well as meet private label suppliers.

Taking place at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on 24 and 25 January 2018, the organisers of IBWSS London say the trade show will offer international bulk suppliers from key global regions “unprecedented” access to the European market.

In addition to a wide range of programmes running throughout the fair, the trade show will also feature a business conference dedicated to the private label and bulk wine and spirit business, with in-depth market studies and instructional seminars

The central part of the conference’s remit is to “encourage sustainable growth and profitability” in the bulk wine and spirit sector.

“The bulk segment holds the largest market share in the wine and spirits industry,” said Sid Patel, CEO of Beverage Trade Network.

“Bulk trading is an age-old trade between producers, but we are now seeing the business take on a very impressive position across the industry. IBWSS London aims to give the bulk trade a truly dynamic trading platform where buyers can confidently conduct business with the world’s most reputable suppliers.”

Pre-registrations for IBWSS London are now open to domestic and international suppliers. Exhibitors can register their interest here: https://goo.gl/forms/zeknb4r4FArYEZ1i2
