Continuously looking for ways to support entrants to our awards, the IWSC is offering visitors and exhibitors attending February’s Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris the opportunity to ‘drop off’ bottles/cans entered to its 2024 awards.

The first major international event of the year, Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris will be opening its doors between 12-14 February 2024 to thousands of wine and spirits producers and industry professionals from across the globe.

To support any entrants attending the event, the IWSC will be on site to collect samples. For just £45 (for wine and low/no drinks - 1.2% ABV or below) per entry and £65 (for spirits and all other alternative drinks), producers exhibiting or attending Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris can drop their bottles off at the IWSC stand. The IWSC stand is located: Hall 6 - Stand A216.

From the event, the IWSC’s logistics partner, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, will collect all entrants and arrange onward delivery to the IWSC's warehouse in the UK.

For entrants to the IWSC’s 2024 awards who are not attending Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris, the delivery options remain consolidated shipping or direct shipping, before the below delivery deadlines:
