The sixth annual EWBC Digital Wine Communications Conference will be held in Logroño (Spain) on October 25-27, 2013.
The only international conference dedicated to the convergence of wine and the web, the EWBC - digital wine communications conference is a three-day event that provides a platform for the global wine community to address today's online communications opportunities.
The 2013 conference is sponsored by the Consejo Regulador de la Denominación de Origen Calificada Rioja, and organized by Ryan and Gabriella Opaz and Robert McIntosh of social media company Vrazon in partnership with Catavino.net, a site dedicated to Iberian food and wine culture.
2013 sees the EWBC celebrating its sixth anniversary (previous events have been run in Spain, Portugal, Austria, Italy and Turkey) and an enthusiastic return to Rioja, scene of the very first conference, held in 2008. The conference will take place in and around the northern Spanish city of Logroño, and in other towns of the wine regions of Rioja and Alava, within easy travelling distance of many European locations.
The theme of the 2013 conference is 'Flavour', reflecting the diversity of the world of wine, not just in terms of regions, grape varieties, wines and those who communicate about them, but also suggesting the multitude of shapes, forms and styles that the related communications can take.
