Wine Business Course for the Wine Industry

Under the current scenario of sales, consumption trends and world economy, it has become a necessity for the hospitality and wine industries to implement new marketing and promotional techniques as well as innovative events. Marketing and promotion are one of the weakest points of the wine and hospitality industries, especially in Europe.

Another of the weak areas of the industry is its events, which could reach potential consumers and boost consumption. Most wine and food events rely on guided tastings, trade fairs, competitions and sampling. These events, although necessary for the industry must be improved to make them more entertaining and appealing. New types of events need to be implemented, directed to potential consumers.

Taking the above into consideration, The American College in Spain in association with Chrand Marketing & Events has developed a seminar that focuses in improving the mentioned areas. With the help of Chrand the course offers marketing and event management strategies taken from the world of sport, music and entertainment applied to the hospitality and wine industry.
