The annual International Wine Tourism Conference, Exhibition & Workshop (IWINETC) is a 3 day event hosted each year in a new country or region and we are therefore always open to consider bids from grape escape destinations looking to to position themselves on a global scale. In general, our location criteria include:
- Location in a wine region
- Strong support from wine and tourism or business promotion organizations. We usually ask the host country or region to be the Premium sponsor. Any additional help in publicity, arranging local contacts, connecting us with sponsors, or finding keynote speakers is a plus.
- An excellent host hotel that will provide us with conference space, is very willing to work with us on our unique needs, and is located in an attractive city and near an important international airport The Conference often attracts between 250 – 350 wine tourism professionals.
