Adelaide is set to become the wine mecca of the world from today, as more than 2500 state, national and international wine industry professionals gather at the 18th Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference. The conference takes place in Adelaide from 26 – 29 June 2022.
Adelaide is Australia’s wine capital and the industry’s heart and soul can be found in South Australia’s 18 unique and distinctive regions*.
Held at the Adelaide Convention centre, the conference will tackle the technical and business issues, as well as the opportunities facing the grape and wine sector.
More than 1000 official delegates are expected to attend the whole conference, with a further 1500 wine industry experts involved over the three days.
At WineTech 2022, the expo component of the event, Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Clare Scriven will address and welcome participants to South Australia.
The Government of South Australia’s AgTech demonstration sites will be on show throughout the conference and participants will be able to take a virtual tour of the viticulture-focussed Nuriootpa site and register their interest to visit and experience the AgTech on show in-person.
Minster Clare Scriven says “South Australia is indisputably Australia’s wine state, producing half of our bottled wine and more than three quarters of our premium wine. It’s also home to the National Wine Centre and all national industry representative and research bodies, including the Australian Wine Research Institute.
“It’s very fitting that Adelaide is hosting Australia’s premier wine industry technical event again in 2022, after hosting 10 of the past 17 conferences. Along with the South Australian wine industry, I welcome the delegates and event participants to Adelaide and have no doubt they will enjoy all our great state has to
offer, as well as gleaning invaluable insights into issues and opportunities facing the grape and wine sector today.
“The expert speakers as well as emerging voices in the grape and wine sector from around the world will offer fresh perspectives on key issues such as sustainability, wine quality, technology, vineyard health, market trends and more.”
The Government of South Australia is the event’s principal government partner and the Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference is the premier technical event for the Australian wine industry, held every three years since 1970.
