Vin 2.0 - Paris Conference

Vinternet just announced Vin 2.0, it’s big Web 2.0 conference in December.  Last I heard, I’m on a panel with Rowan Gormley, founder of Naked Wines, and Philippe Hugon, director at Vinternet.  Pretty fancy for a mere “vigneron junior“, title I was awarded at Paris Web.

And this conference should be a lot of fun.  Paris will be full of tech gurus for the ultra-famous “Le Web” conference, and it looks like Vin 2.0 managed to skim the best and brightest for their event.  Illustrious and hilarious alike, conference attendees will hear from Gary Vaynerchuk, James de Roamy, Berthomeau, Rowan Gormley, and so on and so on.

The speaking panels and conference audience is limited to about 100 attendees will be aimed at wine professionals who already know a bit about the Internet.  I think it costs like 600 Euros.

There will then be a big live wine tasting and also an episode of Wine Library TV.   The “live studio audience” is invitation only, but Vinternet invites everybody to register for free at the eventbrite page and follow along online.  There’s going to be some sort of interface where you’ll be able to interact with the people on the ground in Paris and it should be neat.  I for one am exceptionally curious to see how this agency runs an online tasting.  To register, scroll down to the bottom of the registration page.  It’s free.

I will be on the panel discussing…“Développer ses ventes avec les réseaux sociaux – le e-commerce de proximité” or “Developing sales through social networks – Making e-commerce feel personal” and they’ve encouraged a special focus on … “les opportunités business du web 2.0 notamment avec l’oenotourisme, les nouveaux modes de commercialisation dans un contexte communautaire etc.”   I’m putting together some of my slightly unconventional slides and I will share this with you all once its done. 

Oh and Vinternet gets a +2 common sense bonus for scheduling the conference in a period when winemakers can comfortably attend.  I’m definitely cutting back on the number of events we do around harvest/vinification next year.
