Deadline for Shipping the Tasting Kit Has Been Extended to Jan. 21

Act fast! The deadline to ship the tasting kit has been extended to Thursday, January 21.

We are providing a special session this year on Thursday, January 28, from 1:00 -2:15 p.m., titled The World is Changing but the Varietals We Grow Have Not. Are We Missing Out? Join Chuck Wagner of Caymus Vineyards and Adam Tolmach of Ojai Vineyard in discussing and tasting the commercially produced pure varietal wines from Dr. Walker’s new Pierce’s Disease-resistant hybrid grapevines. Learn from their experience in growing and producing wines from these varietals, and hear about the options available to winegrowers and the benefits of these varietal grapes.

We partnered with Master the World to bring you a wine tasting kit with six different wines in 187 mL bottles (a pour and a half – and enough for two people) for $75. Deadline to purchase is January 21 –while supplies last. Click here to purchase your kit.

Please note that you must register for the Symposium separately.

Tips for Attending a Virtual Conference

The world of virtual conferences can be a bit intimidating if you’re not familiar with it. By planning ahead, you can eliminate any technological issues and get the most out of the 2021 Unified Symposium experience. Some have found virtual conferences to be a great way to learn and focus on the topic without the usual distractions. Here are some simple tips to make your virtual experience effortless:

  • Personalize your online presence. Upload a recent photograph and add an engaging bio in your profile to add a personal touch that facilitates connection.
  • Grab your pen and notepad. The act of writing allows your brain to recall information better. It also gives you a break from the keyboard!
  • Speak up and follow up. Make an effort to actively participate in the conference by asking questions in the Q & A box and scheduling video calls with vendors. Use the week following the symposium to reach out to new connections and follow up on exciting business prospects.

Plan Ahead with These Tips for Attending a Virtual Trade Show

Being virtual opens Unified Symposium for more – more space, more flexibility and more exhibitors. With concurrent sessions, hundreds of virtual booths to visit and exhibitors to connect with, it’s essential that you plan your calendar in advance and get familiar with the new platform. Check out these tips for maximizing your time at a virtual trade show:

  • Build a schedule. Visit this Unified Symposium Exhibitors page to view the participating exhibitors so that you can plan your days in advance and save time. Be sure to keep some time open for opportunities you didn’t anticipate!
  • Prioritize the here and now. The chance to interact with exhibitors in live time and make personal connections is limited to the four days. This is your opportunity to take care of business for 2021. Do your research before the event goes live so you can focus your time better.
  • Take a break. Keep yourself energized to take advantage of all the opportunities available to you by scheduling downtime to digest everything you’re consuming.
