Topics will include data and trends, the nonalcohol segment and how winemakers get launched, supply and ocean freight, sales, ecomm and digital panel, technical and blending panel, what are bulk wine and bulk spirits buyers looking to buy and how will they plan their buying in the recessionary period, national chain buyers like Target on sustainability in suppliers, managing a fast-growing brand, Smoke, lab analysis and contracts, Alternative packaging and more.

There will also be 4 main panels, one with restaurant chain buyers, one with off-trade national chain buyers, a technical panel of winemakers, and lab experts, and one with bulk wine and spirits buyers. The panels will also be open for audience Q and A.

One hallmark of the IBWSS experience is all the unique, first-hand access you will have to some of the biggest names in the industry. So don’t be afraid to stick around after a presentation to ask in-depth questions, or to approach any of the other participants. There’s more to IBWSS San Francisco than just keynotes and presentations, and much of the buzz and excitement of the event comes from meeting people from all over the world, all of them passionate about the world of bulk wine, bulk spirits, and private labels. Once the trade show floor opens up at 11:00 each morning, you have a unique opportunity to speak with some of the biggest and most important companies in the world of bulk wine and private labels, so take some time to introduce yourself to these people.

At the end of every speaker presentation at IBWSS San Francisco, there’s always time for audience to ask questions

At the end of every speaker presentation at IBWSS San Francisco, there’s always time for members of the audience to ask questions. This is a great opportunity to tap into the advice and insights of some of the biggest names in the industry. For example, if you have questions about short- or long-term trends in the bulk wine industry, why not ask Ciatti Company, directly? If you are curious about freight costs and port costs, why not ask Kuehne + Nagel? But don’t worry about copying down every comment from every slide – all presentations from the event will be made available to participants after the conclusion of the show. Many participants, for example, simply take photos of key slides with their smartphones and focus on capturing key insights, comments, and anecdotes not found on any PowerPoint slide.

Both days of the IBWSS event are broken into morning and afternoon sessions. Morning sessions are from 9 am to 11 am and afternoon sessions are from 1 pm to 3 pm. You will be able to walk the expo floor and meet more than 120 exhibitors during your breaks. Lunch will also be served from 1 pm to 2 pm which is included in your conference ticket. After the expo floor closes at 5 pm, you can walk into the after-event party next door at the Double Tree hotel. Note that cocktail party ticket needs to be purchased separately unless you got your conference ticket between December 12 to December 16, 2022.
