1,000 tourism professionals from 50 countries will gather in Reims, the city of kings’ coronation
Wine & Spirit Tourism International Trade Fair, which will take place in Champagne in March, became the WTA Exhibition Partner for the 2022-2023 edition.
Sharing the mission of marching wine & spirits with tourism, the Wine & Spirit Tourism International Trade Fair (WST) and the Wine Travel Awards (WTA) start their cooperation for the awards’ second edition. The projects’ common efforts aspire to help different operators of the wine tourism field to build bridges and promote their offers on the international level.
The specialized Wine & Spirit Tourism International Trade Fair, considered to be the world’s first wine tourism exhibition, will be held on March 12-14, 2023 in Reims, the city of coronations and champagne. The location seems to be perfect as, firstly, it takes place in the amazing historic Champagne region of France, where the method of champagne production was discovered in the Middle Ages and the kings of France were crowned for decades. Secondly, you can get there from Paris by train in less than an hour.
To meet the needs of tour operators, travel agencies and MICE buyers, WST will present a wide range of international exhibitors specializing in the industry, including the WTA community members. In the framework of the trade fair, the WTA will hold the nominees presentation on Monday, 13 March, from 15:15 to 17:15 (Paris time).
1,000 tourism professionals from approximately 50 countries are expected to attend the exhibition. The organizers emphasize that the main idea of the Wine & Spirit Tourism International Trade Fair is to position the event as an annual meeting place for tourism partners in the wine and spirits sector. WST enlists the support of the Reims Tourist Office (l’Office du Tourisme de Reims) and Hervé Novelli, President of the Supreme Council of Wine Tourism and former Secretary of State for Tourism.
