Read SITEVI 2015 visitors and exhibitors testimonials.

Christophe RIOU

Deputy Director of Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin, France

What did you think of SITEVI 2015?

It was by far the best SITEVI that I’ve ever experienced. It was a genuine hive of activity, and was a real boost for the winegrowing sector. You could feel that there was business going on. The exhibitors I met were very satisfied with the contacts and the contracts they signed. More than ever before, this SITEVI was a show for innovation, with the talks drawing people in great number. This is proof that there is a real need for knowledge transfer among stakeholders in the sector. SITEVI is also a showcase for investors. I sensed that the government and local authorities also seemed to be interested in what was happening. It should also be noted that there were new exhibitors and new sectors represented such as biotechnology. This brought additional attractive content to the show. 

Are you satisfied with the show, and why?

As exhibitors, we at IFV benefited from very high visibility both in the organisation of seminars and in the location of our Research&Innovation stand which did very well and benefitted from increasing interest in innovation. And then we also had some very good feedback and were very successful with our involvement in the Grape Variety Pavilion which was a genuinely new event. SITEVI is without a doubt a great showcase for IFV towards its partners and the clients of its subsidiaries Entav-Inra and IFV Services. 

What would you say to a company to persuade it to take part in SITEVI 2017?

Sitevi is the definitive venue where all the players in the international wine community come together. It is therefore an essential and quite unique place to meet up, share expertise, gain insight and do business.
