Stable figures for Vinexpo

29 June, 2015

Vinexpo says 48,500 people visited its recent Bordeaux show, claiming that is stable with 2013.

It claims the visitor profile was more professional and international than at previous shows. 
The show was attended by 151 nationalities, with a noticeable increase in visitors from China (+14%), Japan (+5%), the US (+15%), Africa (+18%), Oceania (+28%) and southern Europe (+7%).
By contrast, the current crisis affecting European markets resulted in lower visitor numbers from France (-2%), Germany (-8%), Benelux (-12%) and the UK (-2%).
The majority of the show’s visitors (64%) still came from France, placing it ahead of China, the US, Spain and the UK. 
Last week the organisers announced a new 4-day format for Vinexpo Bordeaux, dropping the Sunday. 
Vinexpo’s CEO Guillaume Deglise said:  “The 2015 edition is just one step for Vinexpo. We will redouble our efforts to attract professionals from all these markets, and we will make the French wine industry proud to host this global meeting.”
