We are very pleased to bring the Wine Tourism Conference back to California for its fourth year. An expected 250 wine and tourism leaders are expected at the November 12-14, 2014 conference in Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo County. Registration for WTC14 is open now and space is limited due to the size of the conference facility.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently named Paso Robles the 2013 Wine Region of the Year. The magazine explained “This California region has reinvigorated itself with new blood, creativity and rapidly improving wines. … few places exhibit the spirit and can-do positivity of this Central Coast appellation. It’s not easy for a wine region to reinvent itself, but Paso is doing it with flair.”
Sounds to us like a perfect venue for the Wine Tourism Conference!
Visit San Luis Obispo County is our main host for next year and we appreciate their hard work in making the conference possible. SLO County boasts the separate San Luis Obispo wine region in addition to the Paso Robles area and, all told, the county has around 230 wineries.
Our host hotel will be the Paso Robles Inn. The conference will again kick off on Wednesday evening with a Regional Wines Reception hosted by Touring & Tasting Marketing and Media. We will have optional events including a pre-conference excursion, pre-conference workshops, and evening dinners. Prices are still only $350, unchanged since the first conference in 2011.
The Wine Tourism Conference is an excellent opportunity to gather concrete information on how to improve and grow your own wine tourism operations, network with your peers from throughout the world of wine tourism, and experience a fun few days in wine country. We hope you can join us! 2014 WTC Registration
