10th Hong Kong Wine & Spirits Fair Opens Tomorrow
70+ Events on Offer; Public Day on Saturday

HONG KONG, Nov 8, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - The tenth HKTDC Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair will open tomorrow (9 November) and continue through 11 November at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, Paul Chan will be the guest of honour at the opening ceremony.

The tenth edition of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair will open at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre tomorrow and continue through 11 November. Sophia Chong, HKTDC Assistant Executive Director, announces details of the event at a press briefing today.

Today's pre-fair press tour gives media representatives a taste of what to expect during the Wine & Spirits Fair, including award-winning liquors (R) and premium Chardonnay Brandy (L), from the Australia's Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria.

One of the new pavilions, Portugal's Confederacao dos Agricultores de Portugal, brings to the wine fair red wines made from Castelao, a primarily red wine grape, as well as fortified wines.

This year's Wine & Spirits Fair will showcase fine wine and spirits from a record 1,070 exhibitors from 38 countries and regions. There will be more than 30 group pavilions representing wine-producing regions, trade organisations and governmental organisations from around the world.

These include new pavilions organised by France's Syndicat General des Vignerons de la Champagne (SGV), the Southern United States Trade Association, the Russian Export Center, Enterprise Mauritius, Portugal's Confederacao dos Agricultores de Portugal and Setubal Peninsula Wines, as well as Romania's Asociatia Producatorilor si Exportatorilor de Vinuri.

Highlight zones such as Wine & Liquor Products and Whisky and Spirits will also be showcased. The HKTDC will organise more than 70 events during the fair to provide the industry with a comprehensive business and intelligence exchange platform.
