Expert speakers will provide you actionable insights to help you save money from the expensive lesions they have learn, they will provide you the current and future landscape so you can plan, they will provide you see next opportunities. IBWSS conferences are considered to be the best in business and all the speakers at IBWSS have been very careful planned to give you a solid actionable talk.

There will also be 4 main panels, one with restaurant chain buyers, one with off trade national chain buyers, technical panel of winemakers, lab experts and one with bulk wine and spirits buyers. The panels will also be open for audience Q and A.

One hallmark of the IBWSS experience is all the unique, first-hand access you will have to some of the biggest names in the industry. So don’t be afraid to stick around after a presentation to ask in-depth questions, or to approach any of the other participants. There’s more to IBWSS San Francisco than just keynotes and presentations, and much of the buzz and excitement of the event comes from meeting people from all of the world, all of them passionate about the world of bulk wine, bulk spirits and private label. Once the trade show floor opens up at 11:00 each morning, you have a unique opportunity to speak with some of the biggest and most important companies in the world of bulk wine and private label, so take some time to introduce yourself to these people.

At the end of every speaker presentation at IBWSS San Francisco, there’s always time for members of the audience to ask questions. This is a great opportunity to tap into the advice and insights of some of the biggest names in the industry. For example, if you have questions about short- or long-term trends in the bulk wine industry, why not ask Ciatti Company, directly? If you are curious about freight costs and port costs, why not ask Kuehne + Nagel. But don’t worry about copying down every comment from every slide – all presentations from the event will be made available to participants after the conclusion of the show. Many participants, for example, simply take photos of key slides with their smartphones, and focus on capturing key insights, comments, and anecdotes not found on any PowerPoint slide.
