Every year the London International Wine Fair attracts retailers, buyers, importers and restaurateurs from all over the world. With a focus on discovery, the LIWF will help attendees learn about new wines and spirits and emerging regions of wine production. Additionally, debates, seminars and tastings are very informative and, if wine and spirits are important to your bottom line, simply should not be missed.

In the UK, 99% of all wine consumed is imported, making the London International Wine Fair one of the most important of its kind in the UK. Any business that buys or sells wine could benefit from the many trade insights and industry trends that will be discussed at this year’s fair; make sure you don’t miss it!

Around the Excel London there are many other things to do when the Fair ends for the day. Flights will be a breeze for those travelling to London, as London City Airport is located less than a mile away. However, beyond transport convenience, a rich assortment of London’s history is waiting for you to explore. Make the most of the London International Wine Fair and take some time to explore England’s capital too!
