The first Wine Paris has set the benchmark as a keyevent in the wine professional’s calendar, with an attendance of 26,700 wine professionals including30% from outside France.
The United States, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands topped the international visitors list, making up 51% of international visitors.
Diversity as its calling card
Over three days, all French wine producing regions were represented alongside wine producing regions from 24 countries, thereby meeting the expectations of French and international buyers.
Buyers were able to taste the much-praised 2018 vintage and discover some real gems from small and large producers.
A programme of seminars, official and fringe events, tailored to the needs of different visitors profiles, provided immersive experiences and additional networking opportunities for all.
A collective ambition
Wine Paris’ initial ambition was to bring together the entire wine sector, promote French wine regions and welcome wine regions from across the globe, creating a new business proposition for buyers. By bringing together Vinisud and VinoVision Paris, this has been achieved with 2,000 exhibitors making the decision to work together.
‘Our two respective trade fairs have put aside their regional ambitions to prioritise the city of Paris in 2019 and for years to come. Businesses within the wine industry have wholeheartedly expressed support for this project and are defending a common interest in the success of the event’, says Pierre Clément, chairman of VinoVision Paris.
‘For all the long-standing marketing boards taking part in Vinisud – Languedoc, Pays d’Oc, Roussillon, Rhone Valley, South-West, Provence and Corsica – Wine Paris 2019 has proven to be a real success! The trust placed in us by our exhibitors has given us reason to be enthusiastic and ensure the show’s long-term future with a new event in 2020 in Paris, creating a perfect opportunity for targeting export markets outside the EU which are essential for the development of our wine regions’, adds Fabrice Rieu, chairman of Vinisud.
Nearly 70% of Wine Paris exhibitors have confirmed an increased presence in terms of individual winegrowers at Wine Paris 2020 which will be held from the 10th to the 12th of February at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
