Reliable and motivated decision-makers with specific needs:
  • Each buyer has to be the decision-maker and to specify price points, quantities and wine regions that he is looking for.
  • Validation of the solvency of each buyer by the references given from their actual suppliers and evaluation of the company's profile.
  • The buyers engage with a participation fee and organize their own trip.

2 participation packages

Individual package

Each ‘face-to-face’ meeting lasts for 40 minutes and takes place in an area that is allocated entirely for the use of your business. The area comprises of 1 office-bedroom suite per company.

Shared package*

You share your meeting schedule and office with a ‘partner’ from a different region or country chosen by you or by Adhesion Group. The main difference between this package and the individual package is that at each of your 40 minutes meetings, you will welcome new buyers together with your ‘partner’ in your office. You present your products either simultaneously or one after the other. *you exhibit with a partner that you already know or provided by Adhesion Group.

The meetings take place in the business Suites perfectly set-up with a tasting area: you just need to bring your samples. You need to bring enough of them for the convention and the meals.

Testimonies from previous editions

We found some great wines at the WWM Barcelona event which provided a convivial atmosphere with many opportunities to meet a wide range of producers under one roof. We will have no hesitation in returning next time.

Un grand merci pour l’organisation de la convention de Cannes. Nous avons déjà reçu un premier ordre de vin. Donc, les résultats sont déjà arrivés !
Chiara Martinotti de Cascina Gilli (Italie)

The organization was impeccable as in previous years. The location is very beautiful, elegant, and helps underline the importance of the event. The buyers have shown to be professional with a general interest in the wines offered by the members of our Association. The individual meeting schedule allows us, in addition to developing a potential business contact, to collect important information about the market belonging to the buyer with whom we are dealing. Furthermore, it presents the opportunity to talk with buyers coming from all over the world, granting a good view of how the wine market is evolving. After three investments we have noticed that it is very important to insist on attending ADHESION GROUP events because you become much more visible and identifiable to potential buyers, permitting to create that feeling you need to start a business relationship. Also this year some members of our consortium have already closed contracts with the companies present at World Wine Meeting and other negotiations are still ongoing. For us, Cannes and WWM remain a fixed appointment at the beginning of the year!
