The Event: Discover Australia - a world of difference! Trade show, May 12, 2009
The Time and Date: Tuesday, May 12, 2009
The Event: Discover Australia a world of difference! Trade show, consumer show in the evening.
The Venue: Grand Banking Hall, The Suites, King Street
The Target Audience: wine trade
The Availability/Catalogue: just about all the wines were represented by an agency. Many of the food and cosmetics, etc. were not.
The Quote/Background: This used to be a speculative wine tasting with food adjuncts. Wineries had been looking for agencies in Ontario. This time around, most of the wines were already repped except for Farmer's Leap. My approach would have been different if I had known that there were wines available for sale in the province. Also, consumers were coming for the first time, in the evening.
The Wines: I tasted a few wines.
