Washington Winegrowers Convention & Trade Show is Now WineVit
September 10, 2020
Featuring distinguished speakers and a 140-plus booth trade show, WineVit™ has become the premier educational and networking opportunity for the Pacific Northwest grape and wine industry to see, taste, and experience the industry’s innovative approach.
Formerly known as the Winegrowers Convention & Trade Show, WineVit™ will be held March 15-18, 2021, at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, WA.
A new name, but WineVit™ will offer the same in-person opportunities to expand knowledge and understanding of the wine and grape issues and topics as in years past.
WineVit™ will place a special focus on the State of the Industry session after an unprecedented 2020. Oversupply coupled with a pandemic have created a host of challenges as well as opportunities. Speakers will discuss industry trends, global supply and demand chains, and the latest research findings and future projects.
In addition, WineVit™ will look ahead to the next generation of Washington viticulture and how farming on rootstocks has impacted outcomes of other growing regions to equip attendees with the knowledge and resources needed to stay ahead of the curve.
Filtration technology will be the focus of a session and will delve deep into the use of techniques, equipment and processes for wine clarification. The session, “All Those Who Filter Are Not Lost,” will include a tasting of wines filtered using different techniques.
The trade show serves as launchpad for innovative ideas and with more than 140 exhibitors, the trade show offers an opportunity for winegrape growers, vintners, winery staff, and marketers to discover state-of-the art equipment, cutting-edge ideas, and learn about the latest trends. The trade show is the gateway for networking, making new friends, and growing your knowledge of grape growing and winemaking.
WineVit™ is working with state, regional, and local authorities to ensure the latest safety regulations for gatherings. Visit www.winevit.org to register or to learn more. Online registration opens this fall, with rates for students, educators and those who register early.
The Washington Winegrowers Association serves as the synergistic leader and unifying voice – through advocacy and education – for growers, vintners, partners, and policymakers.
