2022 Outlook Conference at the AWITC

The 2022 Outlook Conference, presented by Australian Grape & Wine, will be held on the first day of the AWITC.  Session 1 will look at the Economic and Business outlook which focuses on the global economic trends affecting the industry and issues and challenges with global trade and agriculture.  In Session 2 we discuss why strong regions are the key to success, why wine is a legitimate part of a civilised society and how we live with climate change. We live in dynamic times, so in Session 3 it is apt to ask what are the product and buying trends in the alcohol industry, what are the key insights in our key export markets and what are the global marketing trends and what does that mean for Australian wine industry?  This is a must see for all business owners in the grape and wine sector.


AWITC Workshops

Permission to Play Workshop, presented by Australian Grape & Wine


Protecting reputation is critical to the ongoing prosperity of all agriculture industries and wine is certainly no exception. Maintaining our social license to continue to operate as a valued and accepted part of today’s society is one of the most confronting challenges facing our sector, hence its prominence at this year’s Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference. Australian Grape & Wine’s workshop, ‘The Social License Problem’, will introduce a thought-provoking discussion with industry about what this means for grape and wine producers. We welcome your input and encourage you to select this workshop (W32) when you register for the conference.
 
Several issues will be explored from modern slavery and responsible sourcing to how we manage the increasing scrutiny on the effects of alcohol on physical health. While Australian Grape & Wine works proactively with government and community to transparently demonstrate wine’s legitimacy in society, the ongoing acceptance of our product as a legitimate part of society ultimately comes down to the steps we take in our individual businesses. We hope you can join us at the workshop.
