Vinexpo is fully booked and stand reservations for the international wine and spirits exhibition are now closed.
The 2015 show has been completely redesigned to ensure that our 2400 international exhibitors are welcomed in ideal conditions.
Now all the stands will be concentrated in Halls 1 and 3 to satisfy the exhibitors’ stand location preferences, while Hall 2 will be devoted exclusively to talks and tastings. The outdoor lakeside area will be a major focus, with a diverse range of high-quality catering options, the Club Vinexpo, the gardens and Les Terrasses – Vinexpo’s new premium stands.
This revamp will make the show more compact and more efficient, and the new layout will improve visitor flow, reduce distances and make the entire event more visitor friendly.
“This new-look Vinexpo is our response to exhibitor needs. We are revitalising the premium offer with a brand new concept, Les Terrasses – hybrid stands that allow exhibitors both to have a stand in Hall 1 and a lakeside terrace”, comments Guillaume Deglise, CEO of Vinexpo. “Hall 2 was no longer suitable for welcoming visitors on the stands, so we have completely rethought the layout to satisfy our exhibitors,” he adds.
The new-generation Vinexpo:
- New: Les Terrasses
The Club du Lac has been replaced by a new premium stand offer, Les Terrasses. The concept of offering exhibitors an indoor/outdoor exhibition space has won over 12 major companies (compared with 6 at the Club des Marques in 2013), and so freeing up space in Hall 1.
- The Club Vinexpo moves to the lake shore
The Club Vinexpo – a 500 m² space reserved exclusively for VIP buyers and importers, formerly at the centre of Hall 1 – will now enjoy a lakeside setting close to the famous floating footbridge linking the exhibition centre to the conference centre.
- Goodbye to The Avenue
In 2013, The Avenue, a large, airy space at the centre of Hall 1, hosted shops, services, the press centre and the VIP lounge. Doing away with the Avenue has freed up a large exhibition area allowing us to accommodate a large number of exhibitors in Hall 1.
- The arrival of the tram
A major development for this 18th edition is the arrival of the tram which runs directly from the exhibition centre to Bordeaux city centre.
- Entrances moved to the exterior
The exhibition entrances will be outside the halls so as to give the exhibitors more space. The entrance to Hall 1 will be opposite the new tram stop, and the entrance to Hall 3 in front of the building, opposite the car park.
- All the exhibitors in Halls 1 and 3
Thanks to the large amount of exhibition space freed up in halls 1 and 3, it will be possible to accommodate all the exhibitors in these two halls.
- Additional event spaces
The Vinexpo Academy will be putting on 90 events, tastings and talks during the five days of the show. Given the popularity of these events and thanks to the new layout there will be several additional rooms in Hall 2, which will now be dedicated exclusively to these activities. Hall 3 and the conference centre will also continue to host special events.
