Evening lights in the centre of Logroño

Today's announcement of the venue for EWBC 2013: Logroño in Rioja. It sees the EWBC going back to its roots as the first conference was held in Rioja in 2008. The dates are 25th-27th October 2013. Flavour will be the theme: 'relfecting the diversity of the world of wine, not just in terms of regions, grape varieties, wines and those who communicate about them, but also suggesting the multitude of shapes, forms and styles that the related communications can take.' The conference is sponsored by the Consejo Regulador of Rioja.

Details here and here. Early bird tickets available until 31st March with a 40% reduction for alumni.
