Symposium also includes an intimate trade show for the opportunity to connect with your current Texas clients while meeting new potential accounts. With a small ratio of exhibitors to attendees, there is ample time and space to visit with all attendees. Sponsors, Exhibitors and Attendees, are able to enjoy the 2 hour networking reception, sharing wines from across Texas and enjoying local cocktails and beer at the end of the first day.
Special presentations during the two lunch breaks include a State of the Texas Wine Industry: Presidents Panel and the Crush Survey Report. The Scholarship Awards presentation and reception will be hosted on Monday evening. To date, over $55K in scholarships have been awarded to students across Texas working towards a wine industry related field.
