The 18th Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference (AWITC) will be held in-person at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 26 to 29 June.
Registrations will open on 1 March at www.awitc.com.au with early-bird pricing available until 30 April.
The AWITC will span over four days, featuring 11 core plenary sessions with 49 presentations.
More than 30 technical workshops covering a range of themes will be staged on Sunday 26 June and eight business workshops will be presented on Tuesday 28 June.
The AWITC incorporates the Australian Grape & Wine Outlook Conference, which presents the latest wine business, policy and marketing content, focusing on the future prosperity of the sector, as well as WineTech, the Australian wine industry’s most extensive and relevant trade exhibition.
WineTech is an essential part of the event, delivered in partnership with WISA (Wine Industry Suppliers Australia) and Expertise Events.
It will feature a comprehensive range of viticultural and winemaking equipment, materials and associated services over 9,000 sqm of floor space with around 140 exhibitors.
“The 18th AWITC is an event not to miss, with a program that offers a wide range of diverse and relevant subject matter, covering existing industry priorities plus future issues that may surface,” AWRI managing director Mark Krstic says.
“The event will be presented in a Covid-safe manner, with all attendees required by the venue to be fully vaccinated with two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.
“Every AWITC provides opportunities to learn, network and debate – the combination of this interaction and discussion always leaves our industry stronger.”
