2024 Eastern Winery Exposition | LTS

License to Steal®
Wine Marketing Conference

The License to Steal Wine Marketing Conference® (LTS) is chaired by Donniella Winchell, Executive Director of the Ohio Wine Producers Association, and is best described as a place where wineries, growers and ancillary entities willingly share ideas for marketing, branding, and cultivating their customers in the grape and wine industry across the nation. Sessions are lively, interactive and led by some of the most exciting marketing minds in the business.

New in 2024! LTS will take a different format at EWE Syracuse. In place of a separate co-located event, LTS will present a full Marketing track March 13-14 as part of the EWE Conference. Separate EWE & LTS registration is no longer required. Anyone with an Eastern Winery Exposition Conference pass will also have access to LTS Marketing sessions.

Pass details are available on the Registration page.
