After a digital pivot for the 2020 edition, the Financial Symposium is back live, and in person. In order to have a comfortable and safe environment for everyone, we will be following COVID-19 guidelines for Napa County and those set by the venue, CIA at Copia. 

This year, the team at Wine Business Monthly made some new and exciting changes to enhance its status as the leading conference for those focused on finance, business and strategy in the wine industry. The conference moves to November dates this year, allowing wine companies the chance to take a breather after harvest, and to discuss the results of the latest vintage and its implications for business in 2022.

Knowing that the latest information in data, technology and vineyard economics plays an essential role in any wine company strategy, Wine Business Monthly is incorporating sessions focused specifically on these topics. By integrating content from the company's Vineyard Economic Symposium and Wine Industry Technology Symposium, WBM hopes to further provide tools for all business members to strengthen their position within the industry.

Keynote topics and speakers include:
