Global Wine & Spirits (GWS), the world’s leading e-business network for buyers and sellers in the wine and spirits industry and the China Wine & Spirits Awards (CWSA), the biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in China, today announced their new partnership.
Built to assist both wine producers and importers to grow their businesses, GWS is responding to the increased importance of China in international wine trading. ‘With a burgeoning middle-class, it’s no wonder that the Chinese market is growing at an exponential rate. It’s a very lucrative market with huge volume possibilities and a lot of growth potential for wine producers’ reported Marie Soubirac, Director of Sales at GWS.
China is now the fifth largest global consumer of wine, surpassing the United Kingdom, and trailing just behind the United States, Italy, France and Germany.
‘The CWSA is happy to cooperate with GWS, which has proved to be an invaluable resource to wine professionals. All the CWSA Judges are carefully selected as the most active and important wine buyers (importers, distributors) here in China, hence the CWSA results being the benchmark of suitability to this market and the key springboard to wine sales’ announced Kelly England President.
The GWS HQ is in Montreal, Canada and is staffed with 15 professionals assisting members in 8 languages. The CWSA, based in Hong Kong with offices in Guangzhou and Shenzhen is excited to be a part of the GWS journey into the fastest growing wine and spirits market it the world.
