The first-ever WBWE Connect ended its first edition yesterday (07/12) following two weeks of intense business meetings, personalised networking between professionals from across the world, countless business calls and a new discussion panel conceived for this occasion.
2020 has been a year that has changed everything, from the most intimate aspects to the most global issues: An unexpected revolution that has ruthlessly affected the future of wine businesses.
Conscious of its responsibility as one of the biggest fairs devoted to bulk wine worldwide, the WBWE tried to maintain its commitment with the professionals from the sector. That is the reason why, an online platform for trade and customised relations among buyers and producers was developed in record time.
WBWE Connect is a groundbreaking new tool and therefore it has a long road ahead for improvements; thus, each experience throughout these past two weeks is useful and important in order to assess this platform’s future.
This pandemic will pass, but online business is here to stay; so, those who understand the rules of the game beforehand will be the ones who will have the greatest capacity to strengthen their leadership in the future.
The WBWE was created with a clear commitment: bulk wine trade, its transparency and the vindication of its quality. 12 years have gone by, and WBWE Connect was created with the same idea, yet organisers are aware that there is a lot of room for improvement and we hope to be able to go through it with you.
