Wine & Spirits Show returns for 2019

9th January, 2019 by admin

Following a successful debut in 2018, The Wine & Spirits Show, organised by The Spirits Business and the drinks business, will return to London this April.

The Wine & Spirits Show will return to London on 12 and 13 April

The inaugural Wine & Spirits Show took place on 12 and 13 October 2018 and welcomed 1,500 trade members and consumers to The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London.

The first collaborative event by sister publications The Spirits Business and the drinks business, the show exhibited new, innovative and award-winning brands from across the worlds of wine and spirits, and hosted a number of packed masterclasses with topics spanning fine sparkling wines and an introduction to whisky tasting.

The next Wine & Spirits Show will take place on 12 and 13 April 2019, once again at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London.

As drinking behaviour moves from categories to occasions, The Wine & Spirits Show offers a space for industry professionals and consumers to experience the gamut of alcoholic beverages, with a dedicated wine hall, spirits hall, beer zone and G&T bar.

The Spirits Masters Zone will showcase top-scoring expressions for The Spirits Business’s series of blind-tasting competitions, The Global Spirits Masters, with everything from liqueurs and gin to Scotch and vodka available to sample.

A New Products Zone, meanwhile, will highlight the most cutting-edge new spirits, and will give attendees the chance to vote for their favourite. The wine hall will also feature its own Masters Zone and New Products Zone.

A host of wine, beer and spirits masterclasses will be available for guests to attend for free, and will be confirmed at a later date.

Amy Hopkins, editor of The Spirits Business, said: “The first Wine & Spirits Show truly was a runaway success, bringing the brightest brands from across the drinks world together for two days of tastings and learning.

“We can’t wait to welcome even more industry peers and drinks fans to our next show in April. For anyone with an interest in wine, beers and spirits, The Wine & Spirits Show 2019 promises to be an unmissable event.”

For those interested in exhibiting, please get in touch with events director Chloé Beral at Chloe@thedrinksbusiness.com. Trade members will be welcome to attend a free session on the Friday afternoon.
