WSTA puts the consumer at the heart of its annual conference

How the wine and spirits trade can best tackle the “Consumer Challenge” will be the key theme of this year’s Wine & Spirit Trade Assocation conference to be held in London on September 25.

The event will particularly focus in on how digital technology and an increasingly regulated market is impacting on consumer behaviour.

The full list of speakers, including those from outside the industry, will be announced shortly but it will be hosted by WSTA chairman, Nick Hyde, and include a key note address from WSTA chief executive Miles Beale on the key issues facing the trade. The day will include a panel discussion chaired by Simon Jack, BBC Radio 4 Today programme’s business editor. Tickets can be booked online at

The conference is being held at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly, London, W1 between 8.45am and 12.45pm.
