Vinexpo: Event Promotion

A French Toast

The pressure was on for Vinexpo, the world’s leading show for wine and spirits professionals, to lure new attendees and exhibitors to its 2015 showcase in Bordeaux. Vinexpo’s announcement of the U.S. as its first “Country of Honor” gave us a springboard to telegraph the relevance of the 33-year-old event to the interests of today’s U.S. market.

In the months leading up to the June show, we built anticipation via media interviews for Vinexpo executives with the likes of MarketWatch, Saveur, Reuters, Wine & Spirits, and Wine Enthusiast. We kept press and influencers regularly informed through a new e-newsletter, and invited top writers from Bloomberg, Forbes, The Washington Post, Beverage Media, Today.com, and Huffington Post to experience Vinexpo firsthand.

U.S. attendance at Vinexpo Bordeaux rose 16 percent over the previous exhibition. Media chatter topped 200 million impressions during the campaign.
