“It’s great seeing current customers in person and of course, acquiring new customers, as we do each year!  The lead retrieval system was a great help as we had multiple potential customers in our booth at once.  The show is so well run and fun, we really enjoy exhibiting each year. Thank you for another great year!”
-Dianna Dunlevy, d’marie, 2017 Exhibitor

Marketing

The Eastern Winery Exposition is committed to delivering winery and vineyard decision makers from the Eastern U.S. and Canada. In addition to marketing via social media, industry associations, print and online advertising, throughout February and March the EWE team calls all known wineries located in the states/provinces in an effort to further increase attendance. As supporting sponsors of EWE, numerous associations offer EWE registration discounts to its membership. All of their members will continue to be notified directly about 2021 EWE and the financial benefit they receive.
