Presentation Title: Wine in world markets: Shifting economies, competing categories and evolving consumers
Speaker: Spiros Malandrakis, Senior Alcoholic Drinks Analyst
Presention Time: Thursday 10 December 2015, 09.15am
The wine industry is challenged on all sides. Emerging markets, once hailed as the engines of growth, are now slowed by geopolitical, macroeconomic and legislative headwinds. At the same time, mature Western markets struggle to meet the appetites of a millennial generation that has now come of age and is being won away from wine by other alcohol categories. From his global vantage point, Spiros will outline the market and political forces that are shaping today’s industry – both the long term threats and the sudden shocks. He’ll describe the risks the industry now faces and the opportunities it may yet grasp.
- Economic impacts and political shocks – the state of the world and its appetite for wine
- Category dynamics and cross segment competition
- Glimpsing the future through innovation – the untapped potential of saturated western and economically challenged emerging markets
Wine Vision is the leading forum for the wine industry, where leaders who are passionate about innovation come together to debate the sources of sustainable growth and profitability. An international portfolio of speakers will challenge traditional thinking and address key issues across world markets as relationships between brands and consumers shift and competition intensifies.
