Enhance the momentum launched in 2019
In 2019, Wine Paris set a precedent by hosting the first major wine event in the French capital. The combination of Vinisud and VinoVision Paris, and extensive array of wine regions that attended, turned Paris into the world capital of wine. Following the enthusiasm sparked by the inaugural event, Wine Paris 2020 is already shaping up to be a huge success:
there are more winegrowers, co-operatives and trading companies, more international buyers, more markets represented and a very wide variety of wine merchants, restaurateurs and other local buyers. From February 10 to 12, 2020, Wine Paris promises to bring together even more market players to once again provide opportunities for business and idea sharing in perfect
conditions, and to get Paris’ pulse beating to the rhythm of wine for 3 days!

It is easy to travel the world looking for new and exciting wines, (especially rosé!) but sometimes they are close to home. I am looking forward to this amazing chance to explore so many wines from all around France, both unknown and well-known producers.

Wine Paris was a success as I have been able to meet with most of the suppliers we work with and looking forward coming back to the next edition
Rebecca Gergely Wine Buyer Enotria & Coe
Overall, I found the fair to be well-run. The venue was appropriate for the event. It was thoughtfully planned. The range of exhibitors was very good, although a stronger international presence would likely appeal to a broader audience. The large, open tasting areas were excellent. I liked that simple coding for eco-friendly wines. It helped to effectively make the best use of my time. I did not attend any of the special classes, but I would do so in the future. As an MW, I'd be open to leading a class at next year's event. I would be very pleased to attend in 2020.

Wine Paris 2019 was for our company very useful and successful! Thanks to this event we have today some great new producers to work with! I liked very much different tasting areas, thanks to this areas is possible to find some new and interesting producers.

I found the tradeshow to be an incredibly convenient place to meet with my supplier partners who were participating. As we expand our French portfolio, I also found it well organized by region to help drill down to the areas/producers we were interested in speaking and tasting with, and sure the number of participants will grow to make that aspect even more interesting to importers or buyers in the future.

The first edition of Wine Paris was beyond expectation. To have the fair located in Paris is perfect with direct flights to from Stockholm. The venue was good and the fair was very well organized. I will attend next year

With regard to Wine Paris, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and we met at least four producers that we will be working with. We have already begun working with two of them and I am sure that over the next year we will have begun working with the other 2 or 3. The more producers we have a relationship with, the more difficult it is to find new producers who offer us something that we lack, so to find these new partners was great news. And I am sure they will be partners for us for the long-term.

Wine Paris 2019 was a very convenient and useful way for me to meet with both our current suppliers and discover some potential new partnerships. In the intervening time, we've commenced distributing wines in Ireland from two new producers discovered at Wine Paris. It was really much appreciated and already in the calendar for next year, thanks again for all your organisation and hard work. Well done!
