VinExpo 2008 in Hong Kong - 27 to 29.05.2008
Declared a resounding success, Vinexpo Asia-Pacific 2006 took place at Hong Kong’s Convention & Exhibition Centre from May 23 to 25 2006.
After accessing exhibitors’ feedback and impressions of the impending growth of the Asian market, especially in China, it was unanimously decided that Vinexpo Asia-Pacific 2008 will indeed take place in one of more dynamic Asia’s World City, Hong Kong.
Since 1998, four exhibitions have been organised by Vinexpo Overseas in the Asia-Pacific area (Tokyo in 2000 & 2002 and Hong Kong in 1998 & 2006) a strategic effort to become better acquainted with the ever increasing number of Asian operators, as well as to provide Vinexpo exhibitors with the means to promote growth in a rapidly expanding market.
In Asia, wine consumption is predicted to boom by almost 16% between 2003 and 2008 to 767 million litres, worth over US billion in 2008*. The strongest growth is expected in China, where exports of Bordeaux wine have sky rocketed in the last year. The top five suppliers to the region are France, Italy, USA, Chile and Australia.
Asia is also the leading spirits market in the world, accounting for nearly 57% of global consumption*. “This booming Asian market logically draws significant interest from wine and spirits companies all over the world,” said Mrs. Dominique Hériard-Dubreuil, Vinexpo Asia-Pacific Chairman.
