DTCWS 2017: January 11-12, 2017
Hilton Concord Hotel, Concord, California
Thank you to all our registrants, sponsors, speakers and volunteers that made for an incredibly successful 10th Direct to Consumer Wine Symposium!
The Steering Committee of the DTC Wine Symposium thanks the registrants, sponsors, speakers and volunteers for creating a successful fundraiser for Free the Grapes! and national summit on DTC sales and marketing. We hope to see you all next year for DTCWS 2018.
Select presentations will be recorded and made available after the Symposium and announced through the Free the Grapes! email list. For those of you who couldn’t make it to the symposium we will be making the videos available for purchase.
After 9 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!
