Vinexpo Hong Kong, thought to be the first business-to-business conference organised in Asia, will mark its 20th anniversary from 29-31 May 2018.

The next Vinexpo Hong Kong event will mark its 20th anniversary

The show, which was founded in 1998, has become the “must-attend event” for wine and spirits importers, buyers and sommeliers from the Asia Pacific trade, organisers say.

China continues to be the world’s leading market for spirits and it has also forecast to show the strongest import growth for wine from 2016 to 2020 with a 78% uplift forecast, the organisers note.

Vinexpo alternates holding its major trade events between Bordeaux in France and Hong Kong each year.

The next Vinexpo event will take place in Bordeaux from18-21 June at the city’s Parc des Expositions.

This year, the organisers have launched Vinexpo Explorer, an “intense” programme set up to take industry buyers directly to wine and spirit-producing regions.
