WSTA Conference 2013 to focus on the ‘Consumer Challenge’

prpicwstaThe WSTA has unveiled the theme for its 2013 conference which will focus on the ‘Consumer Challenge’ for the trade. Exploring how digital technology and an increasingly regulated market impact on consumer behaviour.  

The WSTA conference has established itself as one of the major wine and spirit industry events providing a forum for industry leaders to consider the major issues facing the trade. This year’s conference, which is being held on September 25th, will be chaired by WSTA Chairman, Nick Hyde and will include a key note address from WSTA Chief Executive Miles Beale.

Following the success of last year’s event the conference will feature a major key note speaker from outside the trade. A panel discussion chaired by Simon Jack, the Today programme’s Business Editor, will feature industry and non-industry experts. More details about speakers will be released in coming weeks.

Tickets are already selling well for the conference and the WSTA is urging people to book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets can be booked online at

The conference is being held at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London, W1J 9LN and starts with coffee from 8.45am concuding at 12.45pm with a drinks reception, followed by lunch.
