    Do you know when you’ll have the presentation materials from “The Current State of Wine & Culinary Tourism in North America” given by Laura Mandala?

    I am very interested in the national data that she presented.

      Robin, we asked all our speakers to submit their presentations and posted those we received, so at this point we are not likely to get it.
