The Taiwan wine scene is booming. Driven by a colourful local dining ecosystem and a growing appetite for new experiences and flavours, young affluent Millennial consumers in Taiwan are turning towards wine pairing to discover new options.
Supporting that growing market, the Wine & Gourmet Taipei (WGT) is the only professional exhibition in Taiwan that integrates the entire wine industry’ supply chain. By covering both local and international wine agents, but also wineries, professional wine cellars and premium wine-related accessories, the Wine & Gourmet Taipei tradeshow has become the essential rendez-vous for hospitality professionals.
Taipei has given birth to a truly dynamic and innovative dining scene – much to the delight of a local clientele that is ever more curious to discover new flavours and different experiences.”
– Michael Ellis, International Director of the MICHELIN guides
The Wine & Gourmet Taipei fair is also an opportunity for wine and luxury hospitality professionals to experience a variety of gourmet master classes with renowned international Chefs. WGT is indeed the only major professional sourcing platform in Taiwan that connects wine importers, premium hospitality brands, professional buyers and consumers.
The 2018 edition of the Wine & Gourmet Taipei fair will take place from July 20 to July 22 at the Taipei World Trade Center. A comprehensive selection of wines from around the world is expected, with professional exhibitions covering the entire supply chain of the wine industry.
WGT is also the perfect opportunity for industry professionals to mingle and network. Last year’s fair saw close to 14,000 visitors attending the show, half of them being returning guests. For wine producers and distributors, the Wine & Gourmet Taipei tradeshow is the perfect platform to launch their brand in a new and fast-growing market.
The prestigious WGT awards
Alongside the fair, the WGT also organises an Annual Selection award in collaboration with the prestigious Taiwan Sommeliers Association. Wines are selected and judged according to their price range and category. The awards aim at shedding a light on boutique labels and renown brands alike to promote and publicise their products in Asia. Winners of the award are featured in the Taiwan Sommeliers Association’s guide, which provides an excellent marketing opportunity to increase their brand awareness.
