The event is an addition to IWINETC ’s global portfolio of conferences, B2B events and webinars for the wine and culinary tourism industry.
IWINETC Global Virtual B2B Workshop will unite wine tourism professionals from across the globe for two days of one-to-one business meetings that will ferment new connections and enhance existing ones.
The event platform, “My Wine Pleasures” will be open over 2 days so that agents and providers can tailor their schedule to their time zone. Each day will provide tour operators, agents and event organisers the chance to discover new destinations, expand their provider contacts, and get the latest information on each region’s recovery. The programme is as follows:
- Day 1 – The Americas (4 May 2021)
- Day 2 – Europe, Asia and Australasia (5 May 2021)
IWINETC will also run in May and June a second series of live and on-demand webinars titled 10 More Grape Escapes to Wine for in 2021 that will provide tour operators and agents valuable learning experiences and inspirational ideas for their wine loving customers. Destinations scheduled for the series include Australia, Sussex, Sweden and South Africa.
“While we all long for the return of face-to-face events it’s clear that there is a long-term place for high-quality online meetings”, said IWINETC Director Anthony Swift, “IWINETC Global Virtual B2B Workshop will be a valuable and easily accessible event for wine and culinary tourism professionals from around the world to connect and do business.”
