GWS IN HONG KONG ? Discover the producers who will be joining us!
By Marie-Claude Veillette,
For the fourth year in a row the Global Wine & Spirits team will participate in the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair, taking place November 5 to 7, 2015 in Hong Kong, China.

Eight dynamic producers offering a variety of products including scotch, porto and simple and sparkling wines will showcase their products at the GWS pavilion (3C-A12).

Discover products from producers, based in Scotland, Italy, Portugal, France, the United States and Spain.

"We are enthusiastic about helping our members grow their presence in Asian markets to their full potential," says Lindsay Watkin, Senior Director of sales and operations for GWS.

There are many opportunities in Asia for wine and spirits producers:
Hong Kong
  • Total value of wine imports to Hong Kong increased by 16.3% in 2015 (HK$)
  • The three countries that export the most wine to Hong Kong are France (54.1% of total imports), Australia (20.7%) and the United Kingdom (7.1%)
  • In 2008, Hong Kong eliminated all taxes, customs duties and administrative tariffs on wine products.
To take advantage of these incredible growth opportunities for producers, Global Wine & Spirits is launching Global Wine Meetings, a VIP event reserved exclusively for wine and spirits professionals. Taking place April 19 to 20 in Taipei, Taiwan, participating producers will have the opportunity to meet with a wide array of buyers from key markets, including China, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam and South Korea.
