Testimonies from the previous edition
WWM San Francisco 2017 was a great experience. As a US-based wine buyer, we had the opportunity to meet multiple global winemakers and co-op members that represented a wide variety of varietals and price points. The event was very well executed and we look forward to attending again next year!
Ryan Hedspeth - Boutique Beverage Company - North Carolina (USA)
I had the chance to attend the first World Wine Meeting held in San Francisco by Adhesion Group and all I can say is taht I really enjoyed the experienced both personal and professionally speaking. I had the chance to meet the importers and visitors within a very selected environment which made meetings and tastings much more effective and enjoyable for both sides. Morever, previous organization and matching process is quite useful when it comes to focus on priorities and make the event worth the participation. I reckon that this format is quite effective and very goal focused, allowing participants to enjoy a very nice, and friendly but yet professional and accurate experience. I would recommend it to anyone aiming to make the most of a fair and invest time and work properly.

As always it was well organized and I was able to found 2 new vendors for 2018 One from Jura and one rom Bordeaux And perhaps one more from the Roussillon. The Spanish wines were very nice.

WWM est à mon avis un moyen très efficace et moderne de générer un maximum de contacts sur un laps de temps très court, dans un esprit professionnel et avec convivialité. Que dire de l’équipe d’Adhésion Group à part BRAVO ! En effet les membres de cette dernière sont réellement impliqués et à votre entière disposition aussi bien en amont que pendant et après l’évènement. Le check effectué concernant les informations sur les importateurs présents est réel et sérieux. WWM San Francisco m’ont permis de générer quatre nouveaux clients sur les US ! Longue vie aux WWM !
