Wine Day Out is a day of TEDx-style short talks and panel discussions celebrating the multiple personalities of wine from across the globe, industry trends, marketing and wine communication.
Engagement and interactivity are vital to this event, discussion is encouraged through Boiler Room sessions; Q&A styled panel sessions and controversy is inevitable.
Hear from the big acts of wine in all genres of expertise to gain a detailed perspective of the benefits, the challenges and future potential. This is an event that scratches beneath the surface, exploring why this industry is like no other.
In short, Wine Day Out is for everyone who wants to know the everythings about wine.
WHY DOES THE INDUSTRY NEED WINE DAY OUT?
You may feel stuck in your creative patterns, it is part of the hard work at the vineyards, rarely opening opportunities for communication with the people who will make or break your success (consumers, media, trade, taste-makers, sommeliers, etc). Wine Day Out is a platform for conversation and debate about connecting with the audiences for your wine story.
Wine Day Out is not a wine tasting, it is an opportunity for attendees to hear from key personalities in the wine world (and some from other worlds). To share, learn, debate, question, and explore. With many New Zealand producers already in the country for Pinot Palooza (the following day) it is also an great day for everyone to catch up before the festival kicks off in Melbourne the following day.
Wine Day Out is about collaboration, not competition.
