The trade-only event will offer two days of masterclasses, expert panels, and networking opportunities with wine and spirits producers from around the world.

Vinexpo New York made its debut in 2018, with a second, larger edition hosted in New York, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from 4-5 March.

Last year, it featured more than 400 exhibitors from 26 countries and 3,000 wine and spirits professionals – including a mix of importers, distributors, wholesalers, buyers and e-commerce specialists from over 40 US states and seven Canadian provinces.

Now, Vinexpo has revealed details of the new stands and exhibitors making the pilgrimage to New York this year.

Importer Pavillion

Vinexpo New York will debut an all-new Importer Pavilion in 2020. The space will provide importers with a platform to showcase their wine and spirits portfolios to North American buyers and decision-makers looking to gain access to new and different products.

Last year’s show drew wine and spirit professionals from all regions of the U.S. and Canada, 74% of whom reported they were directly responsible for purchasing decisions, according to the event organisers.

New producer

Also new this year is the appearance of Bordeaux-based Chateau le Brande. Benoît and Maud Soulies bought Chateau La Brande, in the Fronsac wine region – just east of Bordeaux – in 2016, before spending two years restructuring the vineyard.

Now looking for importers in the U.S., the husband and wife team are bringing their wines to Vinexpo New York for the first time as part of the WOW! World of Organic Wines pavilion, dedicated to organic wines.

Attendee registration for Vinexpo New York is currently available online with an early-bird price of $75 until 30 November.
