Adapt or Go Extinct: Removing Barriers to Our Industry’s Success  

“Learn, be inspired, and act”

The wine industry is a dynamic place steeped in tradition and innovation.  Finding the balance between the two can often be challenging, but today it is more important than ever.  As the 2017 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium starts its final day it is time for big picture thinking, inspirational discussion, and charting a path to continuing success and growth.  This session showcases speakers from both inside and outside the industry, and will provide a basis for thinking about what you can do with your vineyard, winery or business to adapt for the future or go with your instincts.  Either way, it’s about driving forward for success!
