On Wednesday, the popular State of the Industry general session provides a comprehensive look at every aspect of the wine industry, from what’s being planted to what’s selling. Mike Veseth of The Wine Economist will moderate the session and will feature speakers Nat DiBuduo, Allied Grape Growers; Danny Brager, The Nielsen Company; and Glenn Proctor, Ciatti Company. This is the most highly attended session of the Unified, so you’ll want to get there early to get a seat.
The Unified Symposium is happy to announce that event parking at Raley Field in West Sacramento will once again be available with shuttle service to and from the Sacramento Convention Center. The shuttles will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days of the trade show with only a small $5 charge for all-day parking.
However, there is something new for 2017 that will make parking even better. The City of Sacramento is now offering online parking reservations at select parking garages. Three of the downtown parking garages have a limited number of parking spaces for Unified Symposium attendees. Go to Reserve.Sacpark.org and select “Browse All Event Parking” to reserve your parking space. Reserve your spot soon as parking spaces are limited.
A number of sessions at the Unified Symposium will once again be offered in Spanish, including a general session.
The general session in Spanish, Leading-Edge Technology in Grapegrowing and Winemaking, will look at how the grape and wine industry has adopted many leading-edge solutions to address such issues as labor scarcity, filtration, drought and a host of other issues facing the industry.
