We’re thrilled to announce Felicity Carter, editor-in-chief of Meininger’s Wine Business International as our second confirmed keynote speaker at the International Wine Tourism Conference, Exhibition and Workshop (IWINETC), 10-11 April 2018.
Felicity is a regular speaker at international wine events from ProWein to Wine2Wine, and she has spoken on wine tourism at a number of international conferences, including in South Africa and Portugal. A wine judge, Felicity has judged in Portugal, Germany, Bordeaux, Brussels and Georgia, and in 2015 formed part of the ‘empowerment of women in wine’ panel for Wines of Argentina. She is an international judge of the Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine Wine List of the Year, and the China Wine List of the Year, and has been the international judge of the nationally televised German Wine Queen finals.
Within the IWINETC Conference talk programme Felicity will deliver a talk titled:
How to thrive in the new tourism economy
Wine tourism is moving out of the cellar door and into the world of experiential tourism, where people want to be surprised and delighted by authentic experiences. This talk looks at international trends in tourism and what they mean specifically for the wine tourism industry, and how they can be built into even the smallest wine tourism venture draw.
The IWINETC talk Programme stretches across the two day day-long event covering five topical content themes all aimed at inspiring and educating delegates with sessions that tangibly add value to their business life and personal development.
