International Bulk Wine & Spirits Show moved to February 2017
The International Bulk Wine & Spirits Show in London has been pushed back a month to new dates of February 26-27.
Organisers said the decision to move the event was taken after “much due diligence of connected industry events, buyer participation and continued requests from exhibitors, visitors, buyers and sponsors”.
More than 1,500 delegates are expected to descend upon London for the show, a group taking in retailers, producers, importers and distributors.
Sid Patel, of Bverage Trade Network, the organisers of the event, said: “Our focus from the outset was to make this a truly global event, bringing in the biggest names in the wine industry from all over the world. Right now, the IBWSS is the only show of its kind in the United Kingdom.”
The show follows on from a predecessor in San Francisco that opened to “astounding success with great interest from buyers and exhibitors alike” in July 2017.
The Beverage Trade Network said that with the UK being an established private label, bulk wine and spirits market and easily accessible from major bulk wine producing and buying nations like Spain, France and Italy, it expects this evemt to generate strong trading interest within the industry.
