3rd Annual Industry Trade Show Continues to Grow
April 1st, 2014, Healdsburg, CA – The Wine Industry Network (WIN) today announced that exhibitor registration for the 3rd annual North Coast Wine Industry Expo, the second largest wine industry trade show in North America, is now open to the public. The Expo will, once again, be held in two adjacent buildings, Grace Pavilion and the Hall of Flowers, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa on Thursday, December 4, 2014.
Over the past two years, the Expo has continued to expand its booth space and this year will provide additional oversized booth areas that will accommodate large equipment vendors. These expansions are in direct response to the growth that the show continues to experience each year. Not only has exhibitor space grown, but the show’s attendance numbers have increased as well with over 3,200 industry professionals attending last year’s event. This year, the show organizers are expecting that number to increase to 4,000 show attendees.
“Nearly 90% of last year’s exhibitors are returning for the 2014 show, but, there is always room for new exhibitors looking for additional exposure,” said George Christie, Wine Industry Network President. “We’re extremely grateful to have such amazing support from the local industry as well as from folks across the country,” added Christie. “Our goal is to improve the event each year and provide the best value for both our exhibitors and attendees.”
This year the Expo’s educational component will also expand to accommodate a total of six sessions that will cover a full range of industry topics such as Vineyard, Production, Finance, Tasting Room Sales and Distributor Management – all offered by top industry professionals. The finalized topics and line-up of speakers for the conference will be announced when attendee registration opens in August 2014.
Exhibitor registration is now open for the 2014 Show and booths are expected to sell out quickly. For more information, visit www.wineindustryexpo.com.
