Where Wineries and Growers Come Together
The Eastern Winery Exposition (EWE) is an Eastern-focused wine industry trade show and conference designed to provide the Eastern U.S. and Canadian wineries and vineyards with an easily accessible, affordable, professional event held in a first class hotel and convention center at the right time of year. A strong conference program, exhibit hall featuring suppliers relevant to our region’s business of wine making, networking events, and state association participation are all integral components of EWE.
Since launching the inaugural event three years ago, the Eastern Winery Exposition has successfully established itself as the preeminent trade show and conference in the East. Our dedication to constantly improving EWE, to staying relevant and current, to evolving with the industry, and to listening to our participants, has contributed to our steady growth.
It has been a big year for EWE! As we can continue to grow and evolve, the show floor has sold out, the conference has continued to evolve with the trends and essentials of the industry, and the support from regional and national organizations has continued to increase. We’ve added a wide variety of new topics to the conference, recruited a fresh batch of knowledgeable and experienced professionals and academics to present the subject matter, added two new half-day workshops on distillation and direct-to-consumer marketing, and an offsite craft brandy distilling workshop. The networking will be plentiful, the options to buy from the show floor numerous, and the opportunities to learn – both in the conference and via casual interactions – limitless.
There are currently 19 associations and organizations offering their members EWE registration discounts. View the Registration page for a complete listing.
We thank the American Distilling Institute and Ovation Guild for their sponsorship of the new-in-2014 workshops and to everyone who has contributed suggestions to make the 2014 event better than ever.
