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.
Tune in for an honest, informative discussion lead by Australian Grape & Wine Chief Executive, Tony Battaglene, along with leading winegrape grower, Jim Caddy and Ben Mislov from Flinders Ports. Our speakers will cut through the rhetoric to give a raw assessment of how they see Vintage 2022 playing out and how the dynamics of the global shipping trade impacts Australian importers and exporters .
