Vinexpo says farewell to Hong Kong, hello to Singapore

In a move that had long been expected, Vinexposium is changing the location of its flagship wine trade exhibition in the Asia-Pacific region and has chosen Singapore to host Vinexpo Asia in May 2023.

The group intends to capitalise on the history of Vinexpo Hong Kong (above), which was held in Hong Kong for 20 years until 2018. With a new name echoing its broader scope, Vinexpo Asia is returning to the region with the aim of maximising its influence.

Vinexpo Asia will take place in Singapore from May 23-25, 2023 in the heart of the Marina Bay Sands complex.

The new venue has been chosen thanks to the appeal of Singapore as a growing business hub.

Vinexpo Asia will focus entirely on wines and spirits and will become an annual event in the group’s portfolio.

Vinexpo Asia expects betweeny 1,000 to 1,200 exhibitors from across the globe.

The latest research by the IWSR for Vinexposium forecasts an annual rate of overall growth of 1.5% by 2025 in Asia-Pacific, which is higher than the forecast for Europe, estimated at 1.4%.

“There is currently strong demand among our exhibitors to return to Asia in the best possible conditions," says 
Rodolphe Lameyse, CEO of Vinexposium.

"Singapore stands out as an obvious choice for serving the interests of the entire Asia-Pacific region and act as a magnet, not only for Chinese clients, but also Australians, South Koreans, Thais, Japanese and Vietnamese, to name a few.” 

Vinexposium is the world's leading organiser of wine and spirits trade events.
