Catavino Marketing announces "The Access Zone", a 60m stand at the 2010 London International Wine Fair at ExCeL on May 18-20 dedicated exclusively to social media and blogging in the wine business. Hosted by Gabriella and Ryan Opaz of Catavino Marketing, and sponsored by LIWF, APCOR, Wine Conversation, Adegga and the European Wine Bloggers Conference, the stand will bring together wine bloggers, social media innovators and wine industry leaders from around the world to create innovative wine content, and to discuss, learn and network about the future of wine and the web.

"Having a dedicated zone where they can discover, discuss and learn in a relaxed environment will hopefully lead to many embracing the concepts. For the more experienced blogger it offers an area where like-minded others can meet up, exchange ideas and work together." James Murray and William Broadfoot, Exhibition Directors of Brintex

The seminar schedule has been released, consisting of a wide range of tastings, workshops and seminars that will present relevant wine content designed for a much broader audience. Presentations include: Social Media for Wineries, Blogging 101, Events on, Personal Branding using Social Media, Viniportugal's Announcement of Live Blogger Trips, the 2010 European Wine Blogger launch by the Austrian Wine Marketing Board, to name a few. Presentations at "The Access Zone" will allow believers and skeptics alike to learn, ask questions and explore the future of interactive and dynamic wine communication.

"We're excited to be offered the opportunity to talk with wineries, importers and other wine professionals on the realities of wine and the web. While many speak to the future of wine online, the reality is that the 'future' is now." Gabriella and Ryan Opaz of Catavino Marketing
