The vine continues to strengthen its support of businesses related to wine and vine in its 3rd successive year
Dozens of companies not only dedicated to waste residues and sub-products of the wine and vine industries, but also innovative research projects will be present at the 2016 WBWE in the area "The Vine" conceived to encourage business in this sector.
The Vine Science Award is looking for researches related to obtaining and applying wine and vine by-products.
The World Bulk Wine Exhibition will be held on the 21st and 22nd of November 2016 at the Amsterdam’s RAI.
Conceived as an area within the World Bulk Wine Exhibition, The Vine is the biggest meeting point to foster synergies among all the businesses that evolve around the vine and the wine. A specific place where the wine sector can make the most of all the resources and technologies at its disposal, allowing the vine sector to reach its full potential in terms of profit.
This is a unique opportunity for companies from several sectors, whose products are derived from, byproducts, sub-products and/or residues from the vine or the vinification, as well as technology and service supplier’s companies.
The Vine. All about the vine except wine will once again be available to food and beauty companies, alongside companies from other sectors, whose products are derived from, byproducts, sub-products and/or residues from the vine or the vinification; as well as to technology and service supplier’s companies that help developing said products and activities.
The World Bulk Wine Exhibition focuses on these types of companies that every year have more presence and relevance within the sector, and whose activities go far beyond wine, whether it is marketed in bulk or bottled. Using every resource and expanding every possibility out of the vineyards, these companies carry out a more profitable activity in economic terms and, at the same time, they boost a more sustainable use of resources at an environmental level. These two aspects ensure the continuity of winegrowing soils.
The Vine Science Award
In this context, we consider it essential to foster Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I). Therefore, since 2014, the World Bulk Wine Exhibition organizes the International Scientific Poster Competition (The Vine Science Award), sponsored by LIEC Agroalimentaria Ltd. and Alvinesa, bringing attention to all relevant research related to obtaining and applying wine and vine by-products, as well as ways of converting waste.
Any recent research carried out by universities, research centers, companies and public or private institutions can be submitted to The Vine Science Award. Abstracts should be send to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 21st October 2016. The best poster project, among all those admitted and exhibited during the World Bulk Wine Exhibition, will be awarded with a prize valued at €3.000, based on its originality and ground-breaking nature.
The WBWE is the ideal place for such companies to show to wine-makers, entrepreneurs and distributors the economic alternatives that might be generated from the vine business; because it is the biggest international trade fair devoted to bulk wine. In 2015, during its 7th edition, the World Bulk Wine Exhibition gathered more than 200 companies, which represented 85% of the global supply for bulk wine. Once again, over two days, Amsterdam became the world’s bulk wine capital and the major meeting point for the wine industry’s key players.
The Vine will hold its third edition, as part of the 8th WBWE, the biggest international wine fair in terms of business transactions; which will take place on the 21st and 22nd of November at the Amsterdam’s RAI.
