AWBR and Covid-19

Owing to the current world health crisis we have had to take the decision to postpone the 2020 Academy of Wine Business Research Conference, due to take place in Dijon. However, the AWBR Executive Committee has decided that it can take place in Dijon in 2021. This will be in early July – the exact dates will be communicated shortly. There will be more information when the crisis has passed, and we will also reopen the call for papers for those who decide that they would like to attend next year. We hope to see you then and make it a great celebration about all the research, and for all the researchers, in the field of wine business.

We hope you all keep safe and well during the current difficulties.

our beautiful vineyards and some great historic wine sites.
