Wine Tourism Workshop

In contrast to trade fairs and exhibitions, the Wine Pleasures Workshop is closed to the general public, and takes place in a private environment perfect for pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings between wine experience providers (wineries, hotels, restaurants, cultural venues and so on) and travel professionals selected for their quality and credentials. Wine Pleasures invites more agents than providers to ensure that the latter can fill each available appointment slot with useful and relevant contacts. In addition to targeted appointments, lunches, refreshment breaks and evening receptions offer further valuable networking opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere.

Wine experience providers will value the Wine Pleasures workshop because they can meet a diverse range of wine tourism agents from all over the world. They can increase their wine tourist bookings by meeting and appointing new agents, extending relationships with existing contacts, obtaining market intelligence and feedback, and promoting their brand in the international wine tourism marketplace.

They will appreciate how the Wine Pleasures Workshop will cut down the amount of time and travel required to manage their business relationships.
