Global Trade and Market Conditions Dominated Conversations at the 2020 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium

The 2020 Unified Symposium promised big things and delivered.

In its 26th year, the Unified Symposium continues to offer the industry its first insights into how markets, production and technology will shape the coming year. Along with 28 sessions featuring a record 128 presenters and covering topics ranging from consumer trends to climate change, the Unified also hosted a two-day trade show with over 700 exhibitors and a well-attended luncheon keynoted by Jeff O’Neill of O’Neill Vintners & Distillers. For photos from the event, click here.

The Unified works with vendors, volunteers and staff to elevate the show’s experience for the thousands who attend this premier annual event. The Unified Symposium and its two co-organizers, ASEV and CAWG, extend their thanks to the Unified Program Development Committee members and sponsors for their generous support.

We look forward to seeing you next year at Cal Expo on January 12-14, 2021!
