Update 10/1/11: James of James the Wine Guy (www.jamesthewineguy.com) and Luiz of My Wine Studies (www.mywinestudies.com) are the lucky wine bloggers who were chosen at random to receive passes to the huge world-wide expo that will be taking place in bustling Hong Kong this November. We wish them happy travels!
The organizers of the WineFuture Hong Kong11 Conference have been kind enough to provide us two free passes to give away to Citizen Wine Bloggers in North America, worth 950 Euro each. If you are interested, please leave your name in a comment on this blog post or email us directly. The drawing will be held one week from today, September 16, 2012. Airfare and hotel are not included.
WineFuture is a three-day summit of 50 of the most influential personalities in the wine industry, including folks such as Jancis Robinson (our recent keynote speaker), Robert Parker, and Francis Ford Coppola.
From the conference’s website:
“Organized by The Wine Academy of Spain, Winefuture 2011 brings influential industry experts together to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the business side of the wine sector; sales, communications, marketing, trends, and economics. Expected attendance is more than 1,500 winemakers, Masters of Wine, technical experts, distributors, importers, buyers, journalists, and sommeliers.”
We will be adding “bloggers” to that list of attendees!
