WINE INDUSTRY IMPACT CONFERENCE (WIIC) - Future Proofing Wine Business 

Wine industry leaders, including small to medium winemakers, wine business owners, suppliers, and stakeholders, from across Australia and beyond, will descend on Bendigo in Victoria for the 2022 Wine Industry IMPACT Conference (WIIC).  Presented by Wine Industry Suppliers Association (WISA) and to be held 10-11th October 2022 at the All-Seasons Hotel, Bendigo.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Future Proofing your wine business”.  The industry is at a major junction for action, and independent wineries and producers need practical insights on how to make impact and build profitability.  The event MC will be the esteemed wine writer, author and presenter, Jeremy Oliver.

The conference will offer two packed days of plenary, panel session, workshop break out streams and keynote speakers, with access to network with each other and supplier partners.  A regional tour is offered on Wednesday 12th October with local, interstate, and international guests encouraged to experience a taste of regional Victorian wines. 

Delegates can expect to build capability based on recent and relevant insights for growing domestic and export sales in retail and on premise, DTC and online.  Adopting sustainable practices and technologies will be unpacked, and how we build better cellar door experiences. This national event staged in Victoria, will provide a platform for Victorian producers to both learn and showcase their premium quality bespoke wines with their national peers.

Dynamic speakers both within Australia and internationally, have insight and expertise will create candid discussion on what challenges we are facing. 

The 2022 WIIC conference handbook will be sent to delegates the fortnight before the event to allow them the chance to work with their teams on their priorities before they arrive, so real outcomes can be achieved.

As a not-for-profit association, WISA is committed to supporting the sector for improving collective effort in wine, and we are listening to how we can adapt to the environment.  Collaboration highlights the power of engagement across the supply chain and the opportunity for us to meet, learn, and create change together.  Selecting a regional location was key for us to bring relevant content to a central point.

The 2019 WIIC was in Orange, NSW, (prior to covid) and 2018 was held in Adelaide, SA. 

Suppliers will have the opportunity to showcase at trade tables in the business zone within the plenary space.  Limited to 14, suppliers are encouraged to contact WISA immediately to secure the final places. Trade exhibition includes 1 Conference Delegate ticket.

Conference dinner will be enjoyed Monday 10th October, at Chateau Dore in the Mandurang Valley of Bendigo built in 1866. A Victorian wine showcase on Tuesday will also be offered at the conclusion of the presentations.
