Wine Pleasures B2B Workshop in Italy

Wine Pleasures B2B Workshop – what’s that?

Wine Pleasures B2B Workshops occur annually in Brighton – UK, Italy and Spain and are renowned for their organisation and sophistication – and most importantly, for the quality of producer / importer relationships they facilitate.

We accept limited numbers of buyers at each event, depending on the number of wine producers attending. Each event has country quotas to maintain balance at our events and ensure participants have a positive experience. If your country’s quota has been met, you may be waitlisted for the B2B. Buyers should apply early for the best chance of getting a place.

The Wine Pleasures B2B Workshop in Italy unites buyers from around the world with boutique wine producers from mostly Italy and Eastern European countries such as Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary building an invaluable network for their business and markets, through the power of a face-to-face meetings. Make better use of your time from Monday 21 to Wednesday 23 October than is possible in the large stressful trade fairs.

Programme

The programme includes flight subsidy, accommodation, lunches and evening meals, all of which offer further networking opportunities.
