European Wine Bloggers Conference 2010 - Vienna, Austria

Friday, October 22, 2010 at 10:00 PM - Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 5:00 PM
'Join wine bloggers, new media innovators and wine industry leaders from across the globe on October 22-24 in Vienna, Austria for the 2010 European Wine Bloggers Conference - the premier educational conference for new media and wine.

Now in its third year, this three day conference offers a unique opportunity to not only share ideas on the convergence of new media and wine, but to also network with passionate and motivated bloggers in various industries and from around the world.'

More details here.

I was at the second European Wine Bloggers Conference in Lisbon at the end of October and I certainly found it very worthwhile and it was a good meeting place. I expect I will go to the Third edition in Vienna, although I wait to see what the travel and hotel costs will be.

I will also wait until after 1st March as I do not wish to be entered into a prize draw with the possibility of winning a trip to Vinoble, the sweet wine event in Jerez. I have to say I think it regrettable that the European Wine Bloggers Conference has chosen to associate itself with an event being organised by Pancho Campo MW and his Wine Academy of Spain since Campo remains to this day listed on the Interpol site as a fugitive from justice with a warrant for his arrest on a conviction of fraud in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


The 2010 North America Win Bloggers Conference  will be held at Walla Walla, Washington State from Friday June 25th to Sunday June 27th. Further details here.
