just-drinks.com editor's weekly highlights
In This Issue...
The London International Wine & Spirits Fair brings together the world's buyers, producers and importers for three days of tasting, conference and business. The fair starts May 16th to the 18th May 2006.
I presume that, like me, many of you are expecting a hectic few days at this week’s London International Wine and Spirits Fair.
You would have received your visitor’s badge by now but don’t forget a few other essentials – a passport, a toothbrush and loads of business cards. You may want to bring a suit as well (don’t want to look underdressed). And maybe some Red Bull, because it’s going to be a long three days.
We here at just-drinks, meanwhile, are raring to go. Not only will we be out in force at the event, meeting some very senior players within the industry, but we’ll also be filing stories as and when we get them around ExCel - ‘Live from the Fair’, if you will.
The good news for you all is that ExCel has wireless Internet access. The bad news is that it’s not that cheap. The better news, then, is that just-drinks is offering all visitors to the fair free Internet access, at its Executive Internet Centre at stand G10. Check your emails, surf the Web or check the latest sports news – for free.
After the popularity of the service last year, we’ve increased the number of stations at the show. With six free Internet stations and a research desk managed by the just-drinks team, the stand is guaranteed to be a useful resource for anyone at the show. So, we look forward to welcoming you to London this week. Here’s to a successful few days.
Check out the LIWSF Website for full details of who will be attending, and click here for a floorplan for this year's event. Remember, we're at stand G10, by entrance S3.

In their keenness to explore new flavours and in particular the health properties of exotic ingredients, Annette Farr wonders if soft drinks manufacturers have lost sight of the most basic and vital requirement of any beverage – that it should taste good.
