The upcoming Vancouver International Wine Festival's trade conference will host a symposium on February 27th dedicated to discussing the place of Canadian wine in global wine markets. This should be a fascinating discussion moderated by WineFest keynote speaker, Jon Bonne, and including panelists Chris Coletta (OK Crush Pad), Nik Darlington (UK importer), Janet Dorozynski (Trade Commission, Global Affairs Canada), Dr. Jamie Goode (UK wine writer and academic), as well as Sebastien LeGoff (well-known sommelier and director of Cactus Club's wine program). There are many other excellent events of interest to the trade all of which are listed on the WineFest's trade conference agenda here.
