2018 Unified Symposium

January 23 - January 25

The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium program features sessions and a two-day trade show.

Meeting the Needs of the Industry

Since the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV) and the California Association of Winegrape Growers (CAWG) joined forces to create the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in 1995, it has become the largest wine and grape conference in the nation. And while we’re proud of the size of the Unified Symposium, it is our established reputation for providing outstanding, current and breaking news, as well as information and content that we find most rewarding. As one of the industry’s premier gatherings, the Unified Symposium presents a vital platform to focus on the issues shaping today, while interfacing the topics and trends shaping the future of grapegrowing and winemaking.

A Proven Format

By combining a trade show with a broad spectrum of sessions, the Unified Symposium provides attendees direct access to all the latest information. The Unified Symposium also provides an excellent forum for active networking between registrants and suppliers. Winemakers and grapegrowers not only have a chance to renew and make new friendships, but to actively discuss and debate information and ideas that directly influence their work and success.

Trade Show

Every January, the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium trade show is home to over 650 suppliers to the wine and grape industry. With more than 13,800 industry professionals attending and 730 booths, the Symposium is the largest wine & grape industry conference and trade show of its kind in North America.

Representing the Entire Industry

The Unified Symposium organizers have a long and distinguished history of providing vintners and growers with the information they need to remain competitive. The conference represents the collective experience, knowledge and background of the entire industry. We collaborate with a diverse committee of industry and academic professionals to bring you a program with timely topics and compelling speakers.

Ideal Location

The Unified Symposium is held at the Sacramento Convention Center, 1400 J Street, Sacramento, California. Located in the heart of downtown Sacramento, the convention center is close to fine restaurants, hotels, museums, the State Capitol and great shopping centers. The Sacramento International Airport is only 20 minutes away from the convention center and many of our contracted hotels.
