The new chairman of the London International Wine Fair and Distil Advisory Board is Nick Blair, wine director at Pernod Ricard UK. “As the world’s leading wine industry event, it is vital that the London International Wine Fair continues to meet the high standards expected from its broad international audience and it is the Advisory Board that challenges the organisers to ensure that these standards are met or exceeded.
It is an honour to work with such a talented group of industry professionals in trying to achieve this,” said Blair.
With over 30 years experience in the drinks industry, Blair’s expertise covers wine and spirits in retail, production and distribution on global and domestic markets. Blair’s current role was created to manage the Pernod Ricard wine business in the UK, managing both the commercial and marketing functions related to wine across a portfolio of market leading brands.
The London International Wine Fair takes place on May 12, 13 and 14, 2009 at: ExCeL London, One Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, London, E16 1XL
