Eastern Winery Exposition | Exhibitor Information

Delivering You the Largest Eastern Winery & Vineyard Market

The Eastern market continues growing each year. More than 800 wineries reside within a 5-hour drive of Syracuse, New York. Currently, 365 wineries are listed as operational in the state of New York and another 239 in Ontario. The EWE exhibit hall reflects this growth with a consistently sold-out trade show. 2019 is on track to do the same.

“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

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 of 2019 the EWE team will call 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 2019 EWE and the financial benefit they receive.
