Where Wineries and Growers Come Together
The Eastern Winery Exposition (EWE) is an Eastern-focused wine industry trade show and conference designed to provide the Eastern U.S. and Canadian wineries and vineyards with an easily accessible, affordable, professional event held in a first class venue at the right time of year. A well-rounded conference program, exhibit hall featuring suppliers relevant to our region’s business of wine making, networking events, and state association participation are all integral components of EWE.
2014 has been a big year for EWE with our first-ever sold out show floor in Lancaster and our highest attendance figures yet. The feedback we received onsite in March and in the post-event survey was extremely positive (survey respondents rated their satisfaction with the show at 4.6 on a scale of 1-5, and 91% would recommend EWE to their friends and colleagues.) The conference sessions and speakers presented a wide range of material, all relevant to the East, and were also scored highly by survey respondents. And EWE was honored to award Fred Frank of Dr. Konstantin Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars with the EWE Lifetime Achievement Award at the Third Annual Industry Celebration Dinner.
Building on the success in Lancaster, we’re taking the show to Syracuse, New York in 2015, before returning to Lancaster in 2016. Though going north, the show will still be a show for everyone in the East. And as we’ve said from the start, this is your show. As we enter the final planning phase for 2015, reach out and share your thoughts with us! We value your feedback and we are committed to making each show better and more valuable than the previous.
We’ll continue to update our website in the next few weeks as the 2015 program takes shape. Complete details will be available by the end of October.
