Join the Quality Revolution!
This year’s theme is “The Quality Revolution” and the conference will examine closely new “quality driven” trends in the marketplace and the expected impact on the overall wine and beverage category. Interactive discussions, led by industry experts will highlight innovations in production, packaging, sales & marketing and the effect on quality and consumer impression. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn more about anticipated changes in lending, legislation, legal and compliance and ensure they are prepared for success in 2017.
“This conference will provide a wealth of up-to-date, practical information as well as great networking opportunities to share experiences, knowledge, and a glass or two of fine wine. The Washington, D.C. venue adds layers of benefits for both business and pleasure.” Jim Trezise, President, New York Wine & Grape Foundation
"Our members are excited that a new wine industry conference and trade show has been established to address the most current business challenges and opportunities this region faces. The fact that it’s in Washington, D.C. — a huge wine market in the center of the Eastern wine region — is a critical draw.” Kevin Atticks, Executive Director, Maryland Wineries Association
