Vinexposium to launch Vinexpo IndiaBy Melita Kiely
Wine and spirits trade show organiser Vinexposium will launch Vinexpo India this December.
Vinexpo India will take place in New Delhi from 9 to 11 December, and will be held concurrently with SIAL India.
Trade show organiser Vinexposium is planning to host seven in-person events over the next nine months. However, Vinexpo Shanghai will not be able to go ahead as planned next month because of Covid-19 restrictions in China.
The seven planned in-person events will begin with the World Bulk Wine Exhibition in Amsterdam on 22 and 23 November.
Next year will kick-off with Wine Paris and Vinexpo Paris, which will take place from 14-16 February at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
The following month (9-10 March), Vinexpo America and Drinks America will run in New York. Drinks America will be a new addition to the events calendar and will focus on spirits and other beverage alcohol.
Vinexpo Hong Kong is scheduled to run from 24 to 26 May at the HKCEC, while Vinexpo Bordeaux is due to take place next June. Exact dates for Vinexpo Bordeaux are still to be confirmed.
Rodolphe Lameyse, CEO of Vinexposium, said: “We are delighted to be rolling out for the first time under the Vinexposium banner, an events calendar packed with marketing opportunities.
“Through our seven forthcoming events, our clients will finally be able to get back to the in-person events that are absolutely essential for tasting and conviviality. 2022 will most certainly be a celebration, honouring business and the world of wine and spirits.
“With its events set to resume, Vinexposium is fully prepared to provide producers and buyers with support through its range of international business experiences.
“There is no doubt in my mind that going forward, the group will more than ever before offer a crucial source of business for the wine and spirits industry.”
