New Look at New Zealand
Its old news that New Zealand is big in Hong Kong and here to stay. But do you need some new angles, new selling points and new strategies to really boost your New Zealand portfolio? As one of the global wine industry’s most revered country “brands”, New Zealand Winegrower’s Global Marketing Director Chris Yorke will be joined by an expert panel of Hong Kong insiders to discuss the latest wine trends emerging from New Zealand, and, most importantly, how we can translate these to real sales across all major channels. Get the experts’ input and ideas on growing NZ sales in F&B from JIA Group’s Derek Li, distribution from Northeast Wines & Spirits’ Betsy Haynes, retail from Watson’s Ben Cheung, and marketing from winemaker Tersina Shieh. This dynamic, practical talk and taste session will get you and your sales teams poised for greater NZ sales success.
