29 May 2018 / 31 May 2018 Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center
Every two years
In 1998, in response to the very strong growth potential observed in the Asian markets, Vinexpo designed an exhibition especially for Asia by launching the first Vinexpo Hong Kong. Five exhibitions have been held in Hong Kong and two others took place in Tokyo in 2000 and 2002.
Vinexpo Hong Kong soon became the leading professional exhibition for Asian markets. Unlike Bordeaux, its visitors are buyers only from the 18 countries in the Asian-Pacific region, while the exhibitors are selected and the stand area is deliberately limited.
The next session of Vinexpo Hong Kong will be in May 2014. 1 300 exhibitors from 30 countries on 15 000sqm of booth and 17 000 to 18 000 visitors, exclusively professionals from Asia-Pacific are expected.
Exhibitors must be individuals or companies involved in the production and sale of wines and/or spirits, who are major players in their sector by virtue of their product range, sales turnover and international business activity.
They must belong to one of the following categories:
Wine trading on wine production markets,
Still and sparkling wine production,
Official organisations involved in the promotion of wines and spirits may also be admitted.
Vinexpo Hong Kong is exclusively reserved for wine and spirits trade professionals from the Asia-Pacific region.
