“Following the rapid evolution of the international situation giving rise to evident difficulties concerning all promotional activities, Veronafiere has decided to postpone the dates for Vinitaly, Enolitech and Sol&Agrifood to 14-17 June 2020, judged to be the best period for ensuring the highest business quality standards for exhibitors and visitors.” Giovanni Mantovani, CEO of Veronafiere, made this announcement at the end of the Board of Directors meeting today that discussed decisions regarding the international wine show. “Vinitaly, together with OperaWine,” Mantovani went on, “will therefore take place in a context when the great occasions for the excellence of Made in Italy – such as Cosmoprof and the Salone del Mobile, for example – will have the task of refocusing the attention of international markets and the image of Italy.”
The decision was the outcome of careful analysis of available data as well as listening to the positions of the market stakeholders, including the main sector associations: Unione Italiana Vini, Assoenologi, Federvini, Federdoc, Federazione Vignaioli Indipendenti and Alleanza delle Cooperative Settore Vitivinicolo.

Veronafiere will activate a task force to assist its customers in every sphere necessary to reorganise postponed events and, in close collaboration with relevant associations, it will prepare all incoming actions needed to ensure attendance by qualified buyers and professional operators.
