Special Privileges for the Trade in 2014

Special Privileges for the Trade

The National Wine Experience presented by USA TODAY (NWE) enters its second year in its new home at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.  The event will feature wine from over 30 states, specialty food, seminars and, for the trade, industry networking.

The event will start off as a two-day affair, feature exclusive hours and complimentary admission for the trade, and a large Exhibition Hall designed to highlight hundreds of wineries from both traditional and emerging wine regions across the country.  Eventually, several thousand American wineries will exhibit at the event and an entire day or two will be set aside for the trade.

Although the NWE will be an ideal opportunity for the trade to source wine from large, well-established wineries with familiar names, it will also be a unique chance to find wines from small, artisan producers in emerging wine regions that are just beginning to build their reputation. If you are member of the wine trade, please fill out the trade registration form so that you can enjoy access to the event during trade hours.

Trade hours are Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 11:00 A.M. – 2:00 P.M.
