Blog: Olly WehringLIWF & Distil 2010 - The calm before the storm

Olly Wehring | 17 May 2010

We're less than 24 hours away from this year's London International Wine Fair, and just-drinks is getting everything ready to head to ExCel.

We'll be there in force throughout the three days, so drop us a line at if you'd like us to come and say hello.

I'll also be part of the panel at our 'State of the Nation' seminar on Wednesday, so if you'd like to watch me gape in wonder at the experts on our panel, click here to reserve your seat.

Thanks, meanwhile, go to the Port company who have invited me to their stand for "aperitif festivities with cocktails"... on Tuesday morning at 1130.

A bit early for me, but thanks.

Does anyone have anything going on on Wednesday evening? In previous years, the main party night of the exhibition was a logistical nightmare as we raced from soiree to soiree. This year, however, all I can hear is the sound of crickets.

Or is it something I said?

Here's hoping the ash cloud hasn't made your journey too arduous. See you in the hall.
