Bid to host Symposium 2022

On the last day of this Symposium the Institute would like to be able to announce its co-host for the following international meeting, to be held in mid-2022.

For this purpose, the Institute of Masters of Wine is seeking a Sponsor for its 10th International Wine Symposium.

It will be the most pertinent and high powered event in the international wine calendar attracting people from the top echelons of the wine world – Masters of Wine, other business leaders and opinion formers from around the world.

It is now seen as an unmissable event for top people from all parts of the global wine trade. The Symposium, the Institute’s flagship event, is held in a different location every four years. Previous Symposia have been held in Oxford (1982), Cambridge (1990), Perth (1997), Vienna (2002), Napa (2006), Bordeaux (2010) and Florence (2014).

The Institute of Masters of Wine’s 8th International Symposium was held in Florence in May 2014, and was an enormous success. The next one, in Spain, looks likely to equal, if not surpass, its popularity and reach in 2018. It will be the largest event that the Institute has ever organised, attracting 450+ participants, and has already garnered a high level of attention from around the world.

Now the Institute is seeking a city and region that has similar ambition to help host an unforgettable event in 2022 and become the crossroads for the world of wine.
