VINEXPO 2007: Continued Dedication to the Global Wine & Spirit Markets

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- With its more than 430,000 sq. ft. of stand space already sold out and its lineup of exhibitors confirmed, the June 17th - 21st Vinexpo in Bordeaux, France promises to be an excellent show. The high number of applications confirms the world's interest in Vinexpo as the leading international wine and spirits exhibition. An expected 45,000 to 50,000 industry insiders will be welcomed by 2,400+ exhibitors: individual companies representing all the major regions of the world as well as national pavilions for countries such as the United States, Italy, Spain, Chile, and Argentina. Slovakia will be attending this year's Vinexpo, confirming the trend of new countries joining the exhibition every year.

GET THE GLOBAL PICTURE

Vinexpo has once again partnered with the International Wine and Spirit Record (IWSR) to report on the latest trends in the world's wine and spirits markets -- with a specific outlook to 2010. This in-depth and global picture of the industry titled, Current Trends of the World Wine and Spirits Markets and Outlook to 2010, includes detailed information about the American market and will be unveiled in New York on February 6th, 2007 (for more information, please email vinexpo@sopexa.com).

A second Vinexpo study titled "Wine and Spirits Consumption among Young Adults (between 21 - 25 year-olds)," carried out by Brulé, Ville & Associés (BVA) in several countries including the United States, France, Japan, Belgium and the United Kingdom, will be presented worldwide in March. This fascinating and revealing study details just how differently young people approach traditional products, and how this demographic will affect the future of the wine and spirits market.

VINEXPO ADDS NEW AMENITIES

A new area set aside for the largest companies called Club du Lac, will group 15 of the biggest names in the wine and spirits world including: Constellation Brands (USA), Baron Philippe de Rothschild (France), Concha y Toro (Chile) and Taittinger (France). Guests will be entertained in air-conditioned pavilions with private gardens and patios overlooking the lake.

The restaurants that were formerly located along the lake will be replaced by the Restaurants des Jardins, housed in the specially landscaped area that used to accommodate the Club des Marques. The Brasseries du Jardin remain in the same place and will be part of this new environment.

Building on 2005's addition of exhibitors showcasing "arts de la table" and wine-related products, Vinexpo breaks new ground with the creation of a dedicated exhibition space Marketers, for those companies specialising in wine and spirits marketing, publishing, furniture and packaging. Seminars covering relevant topics to this particular part of the industry, such as wine and spirits sales in restaurant, retail and supermarket outlets, will be held over 5 days of the exhibition.
