Early Bird Deadline is April 18th

Santa Rosa, CA – Registration for Winery DIY, a one-day seminar and supplier showcase to be held May 9th at the Marriott Hotel & Spa in Napa, California is now open. Early birds can save 15% if registered by the April 18th deadline. The do-it-yourself (DIY) seminar offers wineries the tools to improve their tasting rooms, create programs, and train staff. Sessions such as Hammer Out Your Messaging, Nail Down Your Profits, and The Nuts and Bolts of Selling During Events will be led by winery owners, managers, and directors.

"Winery DIY is all about providing wine industry professionals with the tools they need to increase their direct-to-consumer sales and awareness,” stated Elizabeth Slater, host of the conference. “The conference sessions include speakers from wineries large and small. These are industry insiders who have the knowledge and experience to share. Attendees should bring a big notebook or a laptop, and a wrist brace in case of writer’s cramp.”

The exclusive supplier showcase will feature high-level exhibitors with products that will directly relate to the seminar attendees. The showcase is only available to those attending sessions. Early bird pricing is $276 (by April 18) and $325 after that date. For more information call 707.577.7700 or visit
