B.E.V. NY Exhibitor Registration

B.E.V. NY is New York's annual conference for the grape and wine industry, combining the resources of Cornell's Extension Enology Lab, the Finger Lakes Grape Program, and the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. More than 400 people attend B.E.V. NY each year to hear the latest information about marketing, winemaking and grape growing from academic and industry experts. If you want to reach the growers, winemakers and business leaders in the dynamic and expanding grape and wine industry of the Finger Lakes and New York, there is no better place to be than at B.E.V. NY!

Exhibitors can register for the Trade Show during one, two, or all three days of the conference. This gives you the opportunity to target the kind of attendees that you would like to reach during the event. Want to talk to tasting room or marketing staff about your company's new service? Wednesday's business-focused program is where you'll want to be. Are you primarily interested in talking to winemakers? Then be sure to be there during Thursday's enology program. Friday is all about vineyards so if you want to talk to grape growers, that's the day for you. Or get even wider exposure and register for two or three days!

Registration can be found here.
