Vinitaly 2018 in Verona – What to do in Italy April 2018
Vinitaly: the biggest event dedicated to the world of wine organized by Verona Fiere.
On the occasion of Vinitaly, the city of Verona will be the setting for the special out-of-the-art event “Vinitaly and the City.”
Tastings, concerts, meetings, guided tours and many other initiatives will animate the most evocative areas of the city from April 13th to 18th. An unmissable appointment for all wine lovers and a pleasant opportunity to discover and experience Verona for those in town.
More than 4,200 exhibitors are just one of the many reasons for visiting Vinitaly – the International Wine and Spirits Exhibition founded in 1967
that has marked the evolution of the wine-growing system on a national and international scale, thereby helping to make wine one
of the most captivating and dynamic realities in the primary sector.
All the players in the sector come together at Vinitaly to discover excellence, learn more about market trends and especially for business.
The event is increasingly investing in innovation and technology to provide operators with effective digital tools to connect supply
and demand, and bridge distances between continents.
An important role in promoting contacts between trade operators and producers is played by the numerous tastings scheduled: guided and walk-around
tastings, prestigious vertical tastings, seminars, educational events and grand tastings that make every edition of Vinitaly unique and incomparable.
These tastings are joined by analysis focusing on major markets, the presentation of research and market data in Italy and abroad,
theme-based seminars, workshops and much more. More than 400 appointments in 4 days to meet all the needs of sector professionals.
