The Eastern Expertise

The Eastern Winery Exposition brings together the combined expertise and experience of Bob Mignarri, Richard Leahy, and two knowledgeable and actively engaged advisory boards. Bob has 30+ years of successful trade show management experience and has earned a reputation among exhibitors as someone who recognizes and understands their needs and concerns. Richard Leahy is a renowned wine expert with 20 years of experience in developing quality conference programs for the Eastern wine industry. Together they have a proven track record in helping other eastern wine industry shows to grow and become more successful.

An Opportunity to Share Your Wine

As a way of facilitating education and networking, we encourage everyone in the EWE community to share their knowledge and continue to learn about what others in the East are doing. What better way to do this than sharing and tasting each other’s wines? Opportunities to pour your own wine at the Welcome Wine Reception are also available. Details and the how-to’s will be posted in January.

Blogging Station

The EWE Blogging Station is the place to go to spread the word about your wine. Bloggers will be standing by to sample your wine and blog about it in the blogosphere right from the show.

License to Steal Wine Marketing Conference

Co-located with the 2018 EWE, the LTS Conference is the place where wineries, 

growers and ancillary entities willingly share, collaborate and contribute to the future strength of the grape and wine communities across the nation. It is 100% focused on wine marketing issues and chaired by Donniella Winchell, Executive Director of the Ohio Wine Producers Association.

Two of the LTS conference sessions will be a collaboration between the EWE and LTS conferences. All EWE Conference attendees will have the option to select either or both of these two sessions as part of their EWE registration. Full program details will be posted in October.
