This year, the location chosen for our conference is the famous city of Reims.

A place steeped in history where emperors were crowned and the capital of Champagne, Reims is impatient to reveal this heritage to you and immerse you in the prestigious world of one of the most famous and festive wines in the world.

The city of Reims also offers a remarkable architectural heritage and no less than 4 UNESCO sites: Its magnificent Cathedral, the Palais du Tau, the ancient Saint-Remi abbey as well as the Colline de Saint Nicaise.

We hope that many of you will join us for this annual conference which promises to be spectacular!
