THE NEW YORK WINE & GRAPE FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES ITS SUPPORT OF THE EASTERN WINERY EXPOSITION
The Eastern Winery Exposition (EWE), now in its seventh year, is pleased to announce the addition of the New York Wine and Grape Foundation, a non-profit association representing wineries of New York State, to the list of supporting association sponsors of EWE 2018. There are now 28 regional wine associations who support EWE and whose members receive a 10% discount on their 2018 Eastern Winery Exposition registration.
“The New York Wine & Grape Foundation is proud to be a Supporting Sponsor of the Eastern Winery Exposition in March,” says Sam Filler, Executive Director of the Foundation. “We are committed to empowering our winery members in New York State with the information necessary to build a successful business for today and to prepare for the future. From wine marketing to viticulture and enology, the Eastern Winery Exposition’s program schedule has it all. We believe this is a wonderful opportunity to both learn from industry experts and network with peers from across our region.”
According to Bob Mignarri, EWE Show Manager, having “such a prominent organization as the New York Wine & Grape Foundation adds to the strength of the Eastern Winery Exposition. New York is the largest wine-producing state in the East and we are pleased not only to have the support of the Foundation but now to also provide the Foundation’s membership and therefore, more New York wineries, the same savings we provide to our other Supporting Sponsors.”
EWE attendee registration is running 180% ahead of the same time as last year. The exhibit hall has been sold out since December 6 with 193 companies. EWE takes place at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA, March 6-8, 2018. A full list of the 28 Supporting Association Sponsors is available at EasternWineryExposition.com/registration.
