SACRAMENTO, Calif., January 27, 2011 – The 2011 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium turned California’s state capitol into the epicenter of the wine and grape industry, welcoming a record 12,200 attendees to the Sacramento Convention Center. For 17 years, the event – the largest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere – hosts wine and grape industry professionals from around the world to discuss the industry’s latest trends, issues and needs.
Each day the event opened with a general session addressing critical industry concerns. Topics this year included a look at workforce issues with an expert panel discussion on the history of labor in the wine and grape industry and efforts to recognize the diversity that defines the community. The hallmark “State of the Industry” address has traditionally been the event’s most anticipated session, and drew a standing-room only crowd. Today, the Unified’s general session explored the economics behind succeeding in the international marketplace.
Throughout the three-day event, a variety of breakout sessions were offered. On Wednesday and Thursday the event hosted an industry trade show with over 630 exhibitors from around the world displaying their products and services.
The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium represents the collective experience, knowledge and background of the entire industry. For additional information and complete program detail with schedule and speakers, visit the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium’s Website at www.unifiedsymposium.org
