We had some fantastic sessions taking place in the all three rooms at the Barcelona Golf Hotel, giving delegates plenty of food for thought not only for professional development but also valuable business ideas and tips.
The Grape Escape themed talks provided tour operators and agents with several diverse grape escape destinations to consider such as Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, and India. Several mini tastings of wines from each country was well received.
The exhibition area proved once again a popular spot to discover grape escape options while simultaneously networking with fellow professionals
The closing plenary session saw Italy revealed as the 2017 destination for IWINETC
We wanted to say a personal thank you for attending IWINETC this year, and to Premium Sponsors (Catalan Tourist Board and the Barcelona Province Tourist Board) and to all our sponsors and supporters for their continuous support. If you are leaving us today, have a safe journey home and we look forward to sharing our full IWINETC highlights, photos and videos with you in the coming weeks – so keep an eye out!
IWINETC continues tomorrow with the eagerly awaited Wine Tourism Workshop where 65 tour operators will hold b2b meetings with wine tourism experience providers from around the world and of course with host destination Catalunya
Also going on tomorrow are the wine tasting tours to the Cava and Penedès wine regions and to the Concà de Barberà and Tarragona wine regions.
Ci vediamo in Italia!
