Stevie Kim, curator of the wine2wine Business Forum project, said: "Continuing public health emergencies have had a major impact on the wine industry, but with each crisis comes risk and opportunity, so the wine2wine Forum will use the Internet to develop its activities.
The wine2wine Business Forum has been gathering hundreds of international wine professionals in Verona and is a lively two-day dialogue about the business of wine. Seven editions have been held so far.
The forum will be open to all, and viewing the wine2wine Business Forum online will allow viewers and speakers to speak and watch and learn from anywhere in the world, eliminating their inability to attend the forum live due to time constraints or the difficulties associated with international travel.
wine2wine did its best this year to bring the most diverse edition of the forum to date for participants, in addition to the themes of the role of women in the world of wine and inclusiveness.
Experts participating in this year's online forum for the first time include Sandra Taylor, President and CEO of Sustainable Business International; Stephanie Gallo, Marketing Director of E.& J Gallo; Rania Zayyat, founder of Wonder Women of Wine; Jermaine Stone, Founder and CEO of Kruff Wines; and Kodjo Adovor, Founder and Sommelier of the African Wine Club.
