IBWSS UK Opens Early Bird Registration
February 2018 event in London will showcase the best private label and bulk wine opportunities within the UK marketplace
Beverage Trade Network has officially opened early bird registration for the upcoming International Bulk Wine & Spirits Show UK, which will take place at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on February 26-27, 2018. This two-day event is dedicated to helping buyers and sellers navigate the UK’s rapidly-growing bulk wine and spirits marketplace.
This inaugural International Bulk Wine & Spirits Show (IBWSS) in London will showcase wineries, breweries and distilleries from around the world looking to offer private label solutions, bulk wine and spirits, and contract bottling services. The theme of this year’s event is “Your Gateway to Bulk and Private Label.”
In support of this theme, the two-day event will include an expo floor with over 70 exhibitors. This trade show component of the IBWSS London event will give supermarkets, retailers, restaurants, wineries, distilleries and other buyers a premier international platform to source bulk wine and spirits and meet private label suppliers.
In addition, IBWSS UK will include a two-day conference featuring some of the biggest names in private label and bulk wine and spirits within the UK. For example, Clive Donaldson, Wine Sourcing Manager at Wm Morrison Supermarkets, will guide participants through the mindset of a supermarket retailer buyer. Since supermarkets are key players in the UK bulk wine market, it’s important to know what they are looking for and how to attract their attention. Moreover, Andrew Catchpole of Harpers Wine & Spirit Magazine will lead a roundtable discussion on how retailers can build a profitable private label brand.
With the bulk wine and spirits market now representing an incredibly important part of the overall UK wine market, now is the perfect time for industry participants to build the relationships and connections needed to succeed in this fast-growing market. The two-day event will include plenty of opportunities for networking, as well as numerous ways to interact one-on-one with experts.
According to Sid Patel, the CEO of Beverage Trade Network, “No show offers buyers a greater opportunity to meet producers and suppliers who offer private label solutions and bulk wine and spirits products.”
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response from this summer’s IBWSS show in San Francisco, Patel is expecting a similarly high turnout for this show in London. London has always been the premier trading hub of the UK, so it only makes sense that the bulk wine and spirits industry has established a strong foothold there.
