Location: London Film Museum, South Bank

The organiser of the international wine summit, Wine Vision, has announced the dates and line-up of speakers for its event.

Seventy-five international speakers are scheduled at the William Reed Business Media-organised event, which is billed to “inspire action that will change the whole culture and vision for the wine industry of the future”.

Among the line up of speakers on November 18-20 at London’s South Bank, will be: Miguell A Torres, president of Bodegas Torres; Piero Antinori, president of Antinori; Christian Seely, managing director of AXA Milesimes; Nigel Greening, proprietor of Felton Road Wines; Carina Gous, business director of Wine Distell; and David Dearie, CEO of Treasury Wine Estates.

Around 350 board-level drinks professionals are expected to attend; currently eighty tickets have been sold for the event. 

Andrew Reed, MD of events and exhibitions at the media company, said Wine Vision offers a “breadth and level of speakers” that wine exhibitions do not.

Reed added that the £1,979 +VAT ticket price (or £1,879 +VAT before September 27) would act as a “filter”, ensuring only high-level wine trade professionals attend.
