In 2018 two regional options are available, each with unique programming, including the very popular 'steal sessions'
where the best and newest marketing ideas are shared with and among attendees.
The 'original' Midwest version is designed to accommodate industry representatives located 'between the Appalachians and the Rockies.'
The 'new' Eastern version will be imbedded within the Eastern Winery Exposition, the largest wine and grape trade show and
