Less than three years ago, the Santa Rosa-based, North Coast Wine Industry Trade Show & Conference was just an idea, but after its second year; it had become the second largest wine industry trade show in the country.
This year’s event will take place on Dec. 4 and will once again be held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa. There will be six educational tracts, up from four last year, focusing on wine production, sales, marketing and viticulture.
In 2013 more than 3,200 people attended the trade show and conference, up 30 percent from the previous year, and the goal for 2014 is to jump attendance by another thousand.

The latest products and services will be displayed on the trade show floor and attendees also have the option to attend four different conference sessions.
