Talking Wine Evolution 2005: Speaking About Tomorrow's Trends Today 

Twenty wine experts discuss corporate consolidation, "glocalisation" and emerging country markets

Skalli & Rein proudly announces that over twenty top wine industry leaders from twelve countries will present current industry trends to the 300 executive attendees (including Champagne Director of LVMH, Vice President of Kobrand, President of Gosset, Export Manager of Tyrell's Wine...) at the 6th bilingual Wine Evolution: Global Sales & Marketing Forum in Paris, 31 January & 1 February 2005.

Wine Evolution 2005 is set to be the biggest and most internationally diverse edition to date. This year's speakers include leading managers from top companies such as Constellation's Christopher Carson, Western Wines-Vincor's Mike Paul & Brown-Forman's David Cox. Representing the high-end international exporters, featuring speakers like Douglas Murray from Montes SA, Pierre-Henry Gagey from Louis Jadot & Bernd Halbach International Director of Freixenet SA.

This year's importers include a Scandinavian market specialist and Shanghai-based Summergate International which imports key brands, such as Duboeuf into Asia. Speakers also include Juanita Duggan, a representative from Rabobank and a strong press panel ranging from the Singapore-based Wine Review to the Italian Il Corriere Vinicolo. Wilhelm Lerner from Arthur D. Little and Marian Kopp from Racke International will represent the German market forum. WE2005 marks the return of Marc Engel, who will continue the popular "Two Buck Chuck" debate.

The main topics for discussion will focus on corporate consolidation & develop the argument for the ever present need to sell local products globally. Speakers will also discuss and define the "grey area" between the boutique wineries and multinational companies, how best to respond to the Euro/Dollar exchange rate and highlight market opportunities in South East Asia and Eastern Europe.
