Wine Roadshow

Catching the Export Wave

A seminar hosted by FINLAYSONS Australian Wine Lawyers

Australian wine exports are booming again.  Do you want to catch this wave?

Once again, Finlaysons has gathered together a group of experts, with proven expertise and experience, including representatives of WFA and Wine Australia for Wine Roadshow 26 to give you the answers on catching the export wave such as:

Do you know which markets present the greatest opportunities in the short, medium and long terms? What trade barriers are in the way and what are we doing about them?

What grant monies are available?  How do you access them?

What export approvals are required?  What is the process to obtain them?

How do you organise the ship? What documentation is required?

What should be in your contract with your importer / distributor?

What do you do if you have a dispute with your importer?  Can you resolve it but still maintain the relationship?  Alternatively how do you exit whilst still getting paid and preserving your stock?

Attend Wine Roadshow 26 and position your business to catch the export wave, without being dumped.

2018 details coming soon.
