This year’s 56th edition expects to host over 30,000 operators from 140 countries, underscoring its significance as a global platform for the wine industry.

Strategic Positioning and Business Opportunities

Federico Bricolo, President of Veronafiere, commented:

“Vinitaly is not only a fundamental ally for companies in this sector but also helps improve the positioning of Italian wine in the main strategic areas. This year sees 1,200 top buyers from 65 countries ready to meet and begin negotiations with exhibitors. This result is up by 20% compared to 2023 and was achieved thanks to an impressive incoming campaign, developed not the least with the support of ICE Trade Agency, which for the first time also involved all the country’s promotion institutions. Business diplomacy to help the sector and companies grow.”
