DTC Wine Symposium 2018: January 17-18, 2018
Hilton Concord Hotel, Concord, California
Thank you to all our registrants, sponsors, speakers and volunteers who made the 10th annual Direct to Consumer Wine Symposium such a big success!
Audio and video presentation files from the January 2017 summit are available for $50/file or $250 for all 18 files at this link: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/dtcws17/ Files include Workshop Sessions, Sponsor Sessions, and four separate keynote speakers. (A separate link was provided in February to registrants of the 2017 event for accessing the files at no charge.)
The January 2017 summit sold out, attracting nearly 500 sponsors, speakers and registrants from 15 states. The program expanded to include 6 Workshop Sessions, 2 Town Hall Sessions and 6 Sponsor Sessions. Ninety-three percent of post-event survey respondents recommend the event.
After 10 years, the event has raised more than $1 million for Free the Grapes’ PR campaign, and the Coalition for Free Trade’s legal work. These two groups have worked closely with industry representatives and regional associations to streamline onerous regulations and increase the number of legal states from 17 to 44, which represent nearly 94% of the US population. The DTC Wine Symposium is the primary fundraiser for Free the Grapes!
