Since the first of these Fairs in 1981, the amount of exhibitors has grown from 60 to approximately 1,300. Additionally, about 17,000 visitors are expected to attend the three-day event, which concludes tomorrow.
Adrian McKeon, managing director of Allied Domecq Wine UK, said: “In its 25th anniversary year, it is expected to be bigger and better than ever and it has been a pleasure and a privilege for me to chair the Advisory Board.”
In addition to the many exhibitors from all around the world, the event also includes seminars for the off and the on-trade. These include: The legislation Debate, looking at impending legislation and its effects on the on and off-trade, and also The Closure Debate - One Year On.
