About the Symposium
The world’s pre-eminent wine event will be taking place in Spain for the first time, as the candidacy of the city of Logroño, La Rioja, presented by the Fundación para la Cultura del Vino, has won the bid to host the Institute of Masters of Wine’s 9th International Symposium in 2018.
The Symposium, which is staged every four years, brings together leading producers, scientists, thinkers, brand owners, marketers and communicators for four spectacular days of conference, debate and tastings. Entertaining and informative speakers will be chosen from among the leading specialists in their field. The social side of the Symposium is also very important and delegates will be treated to a succession of lunches and dinners sponsored by leading global marques and institutions.
