For 25 years, the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium has
served as the industry’s platform for news and the place to
investigate the current technological developments and network
with friends and colleagues. This year, the Unified presented the
latest trends in wine and other beverages and an overview of the
state of the industry, and ended with a broad look at how
technology impacts the vineyards, wineries, wine production and
consumer experience, as well as hosted nearly 700 exhibitors that
filled the Sacramento Convention Center. Lance Winters’ keynote
and tasting stretched imaginations and palates. Attendees’
chatter energized the halls, many admiring this year’s vibrant
displays, taking selfies and posting them on social media. Many
attended sessions like the one on Rosé, learned a bit about
cannabis and listened in on a technology session from a speaker
in New Zealand via Skype. Click here to see
photos from this year’s event.
Each year, the Unified works with volunteers and staff to
elevate the show’s experience for the thousands who come through
the Sacramento Convention Center’s door. The Unified Symposium
and its two co-organizers, ASEV and CAWG, thank the Unified Program
Development Committee members and sponsors for their generous support.
We look forward to seeing you next year at Cal Expo on February 4-6, 2020!
The Unified Symposium Managing Committee has been working
closely with the city of Sacramento on the Sacramento Convention
Center’s remodeling project, which will shut the venue down for a
full year and require the Unified to find a temporary home for
2020. Many options were considered, but the committee decided to
keep the show in Sacramento, moving it to the Cal Expo grounds five miles away from
downtown Sacramento. For more detailed information, read the
Cal Expo 2020
Cal Expo offers ample space, lots of parking and new
opportunities for a show of the Unified’s size. The City of
Sacramento, Cal Expo and Visit Sacramento have been working
closely with the Unified Symposium to ensure a positive Unified
experience during this temporary move. Stay tuned for more
details as the planning takes shape. We’re seeing a lot of good
energy and excitement for our temporary venue.
