Wine in China

WiC Logo A websiteFollowing the success of the first Wine in China Conference last year, Meiburg Wine Media has compiled a fresh batch of topics and speakers for the 2014 Conference – being held in Hong Kong the day before the International Wine and Spirits Fair. Wine in China is the “inner circle of insiders” conference – giving delegates direct access to our industry’s most tapped-in insiders, in order to help the wine business grow in China.

With three different streams for attendees to choose from; each stream offering several seminars – delegates will connect with industry leaders, discover new trends, expand their business network, discuss partnerships, and further develop their wine knowledge. The first stream focuses on entering the market, with speakers including business leaders from some of the more established importers in the region. The next stream focuses on building out a trade network, featuring a number of key players from the Greater Chinese F&B trade, retail channels and marketing platforms such as wine fairs and education. The final stream focuses on connecting directly with consumers, bringing in heavy-hitters from local wine media, market research and public relations.

Tickets can be purchased here.

2014 Topics – Finding the Right Importer; Market Entry Logistics; Connecting with the F&B Trade; Wine Retail; Building Loyalty: Education and Internal Training; Consumer Dynamics; Packaging for the Chinese Market and Media among others.
