International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show (IBWSS) which is an annual show in San Francisco that caters to the US bulk wine, bulk spirits and private label buyers is now also coming to London in 2018. IBWSS London will be an annual event exhibiting global bulk wine, bulk spirits and private-label service providers.
The IBWSS London will give bars, restaurants, pubs, clubs, retailers, wineries, distilleries and other buyers in the UK and the rest of Europe an opportunity to source bulk wine and spirits in one place and meet private-label suppliers.
It will take place on February 26 and 27 at The Royal Horticultural Halls Lindley Hall in Westminster, running from 11am to 6pm both days. More details at http://ibwsshow.com/en/.
“The bulk segment holds the largest market share in the wine and spirits industry,” said Sid Patel, CEO of organiser Beverage Trade Network. “Bulk trading is an age-old trade between producers, but we are now seeing the business take on a very impressive position across the industry. The International Bulk Wine and Spirits Show aims to give the bulk trade a truly dynamic trading platform where buyers can confidently conduct business with the world’s most reputable suppliers.”
As the central exchange for European trade, London is positioned perfectly for the fair. The city has long acted as the European trading post between the northern and southern hemispheres. With the launch of IBWSS, international bulk suppliers from some of the world’s most important markets will have unprecedented access to the European market.
