Vinexpo New York, scheduled to take place at Manhattan’s Jacob K. Javits Center in February 2020, has been cancelled.
“As show organisers of an international trade event which draws thousands of attendees from across North America and exhibitors from all corners of the world, it became evidence that a live event of our kind would not be possible in February,” said Beckie Kier, event director of Vinexpo New York. “We are now planning for the 2022 edition.”
Show organisers have spent the year offering free monthly webinars. More recently, the New York team launched a five-part educational series in partnership with the Wine Business Institute at Sonoma State University, focusing on strategies for brands looking to enter the US market.
“In the light of the pandemic situation and its current spread, it is a reasonable and wise decision to cancel this most awaited event in New York,” said Rodolphe Lameyse, CEO of Vinexposium.
Information regarding the 2022 event will be announced when available.
