Clarence Dillon Wines participated this year in the Vinexpo Asia-Pacific trade fair that took place in Hong Kong from the 27th to the 29th of May.
This 6th Vinexpo Asia-Pacific had a record number of visitors and has well and truly made a name for itself as an essential event for all wine professionals in Asia. Some 1,300 exhibitors represented wines and spirits from 34 different countries. Furthermore, there were 16,800 visitors (+6.8% compared to the previous 2012 trade fair), including importers, distributors, and important buyers. Gérard Blanloeil (Managing Director of CDW), Joan Mourgues (Export Manager), and Alexi Dasté (in charge of sales to the Asia-Pacific zone) attended the exhibition and made precious contacts with wine and spirits professionals: clients, prospective clients, wine journalists etc. There was one meeting after another at our stand! China is a major market that will continue to develop, and there were slightly more Chinese buyers this year.
There were also more visitors from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
