A series of full-day meetings, with dozens of industry volunteers, has yielded a strong program for the 2015 Unified Symposium. Register for these sessions on October 28 when registration and housing officially opens. The content focus is on emerging issues, trends and breakthroughs in grapegrowing, winemaking, marketing and business. Leaders and pioneers from around the globe are being recruited as expert panelists.
The Tuesday’s luncheon with a keynote speaker, first introduced last year, is being repeated in 2015. More information on the speaker and luncheon will be forthcoming on the website.
