Organiser of the World Bulk Wine Exhibition Asia (WBWE Asia) has announced that this year’s show will be postponed to 12 and 13 July.
The show, devoted to the bulk wine trade in China, was originally scheduled to be held between 29 and 30 May in the city of Yantai in Northeastern Shandong province.
The organiser said in a statement that after having listened carefully to the participants of WBWE Asia, as well as to our partners in China and to the local government of the city of Yantai, we have decided to postpone the fair.
The statement said WBWE Asia is an important meeting point for the wine industry in Asia and they are working day and night on creating the best possible event for the community in July, when the industry will be in the midst of revitalization.
The organiser also said they understand the postponement will cause inconvenience to the industry, they thanked for participants’ preparedness to work together to contain COVID-19.
This year’s WBWE Asia show is the second edition of the fair. It is the Asian edition of the original WBWE Amsterdam show normally held in November.
Bulk wines are unbottled wines imported by local distributors or retailers to be bottled under their own labels which are mostly entry-level wines.
Yantai is China’s top bulk wine importing port with 80% of bulk wine shipments entered China through its port facilities.
Last year’s inaugural WBWE Asia featured 140 exhibitors from 20 different countries, including representation from Australia, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, Italy and Moldova.
