FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Registration Now Open for the 2017 Eastern Winery Exposition in Syracuse, NY
SYRACUSE, NY—The Eastern Winery Exposition (EWE), the largest trade show and conference for the wine and grape industries east of the Rockies opened registration at 1:00 p.m. today at EasternWineryExposition.com. EWE, now in its sixth year, will take place at the Oncenter in Syracuse, NY from March 22-24. A day of two single-theme workshops takes place March 22, featuring New Containers, Closures and Bottling Issues and Fruit Wine, Mead and Cider. On March 23-24 the two-day conference takes place with sessions addressing viticulture, enology, and money, marketing & management issues. The trade show, featuring more than 200 industry suppliers, opens at 11:00 a.m. on March 23 and runs through 2:30 p.m. on March 24. In 2015, the last year EWE took place in Syracuse, over 1,000 industry members attended.
Show Manager Bob Mignarri mentioned two noteworthy developments for 2017. First, the co-location of the License to Steal wine marketing conference, March 23-24. With its focus on wine marketing issues particular to Eastern states and markets, it is a natural fit for EWE. Second, the opening of the five-star Marriott hotel located just two blocks from the Oncenter. Mignarri visited the new hotel recently and was quite impressed by the multi-million dollar renovation. He believes it – and the close proximity to EWE – will be well received by participants.
Mignarri also noted that those who register early will receive the largest discounts. Early bird rates run through December 21, advance rates through February 28, and pre-show rates through March 21. For example, those who register for the Workshop+Conference pass would save $150.00 by registering at the Early Bird rate, rather than at the conference itself.
Who Should Attend: EWE is a production wine industry conference and trade show designed for the specific issues and needs of vineyards and wineries east of the Rockies, and has stayed true to the commitment of a wine and grape-focused program. Accordingly, it is a valuable resource for any commercial vineyard and winery owners, operators and employees, whether in the start-up phase or the expansion phase. Conference content is geared towards both the newcomer and the veteran alike.
The Eastern Winery Exposition is sponsored by Wines & Vines and Practical Business Solutions and is supported by 23 state and industry associations.
