Vinexpo merges with events company Comexposium

08 January, 2020

Global event organiser Comexposium and Vinexpo have entered into exclusive negotiations to create a new joint venture entity.

This is in response to the changing global wine and spirits industry and aims to create a leading global organiser dedicated to the industry.

A statement released says the new entity will be the world’s leading organiser of events dedicated to wines and spirits, with more than 78,000 annual visitors from 140 countries and 5,900 exhibitors.

With equal stakes, the new entity will benefit from the international reach of Comexposium and Vinexpo’s experience in organising professional events in the wine and spirits sector.

The new entity will boast a portfolio of 10 events: Wine Paris (Vinisud/Vinovision Paris), World Wine Meetings and World Bulk Wine Exhibition (Amsterdam and Asia) from Comexposium as well as Vinexpo (Bordeaux, Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai and New York) plus Vinexpo Explorer.

The new business will look to create new events and the project is supported by all the strategic advisors of Vinisud and VinoVision Paris and the Vinexpo Strategic Committee.
