The presence of a Village2.0 and many conferences (how to export in China, presentation of the vintage 2013 by Andreas Larsson, World’s Best Sommelier in 2007 … etc) also helped to support this event by making this event a place of exchange and learning, but also communication for web startups present.
Side peak even if it is far behind the traffic statistics of other regional shows as Vinisud (20th edition) we must still remember that is was a first edition, but also that the contacts were judged by the exhibitors, good or very promising. Some of them have also concluded with large orders. One small thing to regret is that all appellations Southwest have not played the game to be present.

We already know that all exhibitors will come back to see us. 500 exhibitors it now expected around for attendance of around 8,000 people. So a lot of satisfaction, enthusiasm for a show which proved to correspond to our expectations in terms of attendance but also atmosphere … “(Eric Dulong, President of Bordeaux Vinipro)
