VINEXPO PARIS and WINE PARIS are taking a new step forward in their collaboration and creating a communal area to welcome the world’s wine regions to their next event (from 10 to 12 February 2020 – Paris Expo Porte de Versailles). This strong signal sent out to all industry players proves once again that the two exhibitions are singing from the same hymn sheet to encourage discovery, facilitate networking and develop business.
VINEXPO PARIS AND WINE PARIS: A SHARED AMBITION TO CREATE A MAJOR BUSINESS EVENT
Last May, Vinexpo Paris and Wine Paris announced they would be sharing the same venue in Paris, a major European capital and a strategic and easily accessible marketplace, on key dates on the buyers’ agenda (10-12 February 2020). By holding the events simultaneously, they can bring together an extensive and representative selection of French and international wine regions.
In a setting that promotes sharing and engagement, the two exhibitions are encouraging discovery and quality business connections by offering visitors a clear range of products, new concepts and immersive visit itineraries (WOW!, WONDERFUL, THE AVENUE, THE NEW WAVE, BE SPIRITS, DISCOVERIES BY WINE MOSAIC…).
This joint approach undeniably enhances the appeal of the event and encourages a wide range of national and international buyers to attend (importers, wine merchants, restaurateurs and hoteliers, sommeliers, central purchasing agencies, distributors, specialised wholesalers and sales agents). It allows producers, trading companies and brands to maximise their resources and be part of a high-profile event in the French capital.
A COMMUNAL INTERNATIONAL AREA TO MAXIMISE THE VISITOR EXPERIENCE
Now, VINEXPO PARIS and WINE PARIS are taking a new step forward and will present a joint and diversified range of international wines in the same area. The new venue, located in Hall 7, will bring together offerings from 20 countries representing 60 wine regions from across the world: Argentina, Austria, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, etc.
The creation of this communal international area is pursuant to the signature of an agreement between the two organisers, whereby the events are marketed under their joint signature. This marks an important step in the development of both exhibitions and enhances their strong international dimension.
Many brands and institutions have already booked their space: Araex, Bodegas Manzanos, Castilla La Mancha, Consorzio Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore, Consorzio Dei Vini Asolo Montello, Consorzio Prosecco Doc, Dfj Vinhos, Chianti Classico Do, Douro E Do Porto, I.P.

“The combination of the two major French exhibitions – Vinexpo Paris 2020 and Wine Paris– has led to the emergence of a project of huge magnitude that can rival the largest international shows. We are convinced that it will produce some good opportunities for estates within the La Mancha protected designation of origin”. Carlos D. Bonilla – Chairman of the D.O. La Mancha – Spain
“Grupo Peñaflor, Argentinian Group and key player in the world wine industry will participate in Vinexpo Paris, which is for us the place to see and be seen. We are pleased with the collaboration with Wine Paris.” María Laura Odoriz – Global Trade Marketing Manager – Grupo Peñaflor
