Three-Year Sponsorship for Corbans Viticulture Wine New Zealand Seminars
In an increasing calendar of trade events and wine road shows, WINE NEW ZEALAND is proud of its distinction as an established, dynamic and comprehensive national event. Add to this, that it is the only wine trade event endorsed by the New Zealand Winegrowers Association, and that it offers hospitality professionals the unique opportunity to conduct their core New Zealand wine business through one event, this truly sets it apart from the competition.
More than a pure tasting forum, this event includes a premium seminar series, presented in association with the New Zealand Winegrowers Association. These seminars were integrated as a feature within the event in 2006, and provide a critical educational and discussion platform for the wine and hospitality industries. In further developing this platform, dmg world media is delighted to announce that Corbans Viticulture has confirmed a three-year term as the official naming rights sponsor of the Corbans Viticulture WINE NEW ZEALAND Seminars.
