I bought a product and somehow got involved. Many of you have a great deal of experience attending wine trade shows and wine events both in the U.S. and abroad. I am trying to help a relatively new, small business spend its resources wisely by selecting a very few events to attend that offer excellent opportunities to present and sell their product.
The product is a built for purpose wine suitcase some of you may be familiar with - The VinGardeValise http://vingardevalise.com/
. The best possible events will have a large number of producers and consumers in attendance. The case is already being sold by several producers in Napa and at Total Wine among others. People who travel with wine,wineries, and people in the wine trade are the primary markets.
I would appreciate any insight and recommendations you might have about which events you think are worth investigating. WOPN seems to be one of those events; possibly ZAP but I am sure there are others.
Thanks for your help.
