London Wine Fair (LWF) organisers have said 83% of exhibitors that attended this year have already confirmed they will return to the event in 2015, but Treasury Wine Estates and Accolade Wines have yet to confirm their attendance. 

Next years London Wine Fair takes place from 18-20 May

Brintex, the company behind the show, revealed the figure today as its priority booking period came to a close with six months until the three-day trade fair starts. Australian Vintage, Bibendum, Gonzalez Byass and Hatch Mansfield are among those that are returning. 

However, a show spokesperson told just-drinks that Treasury Wine Estates and Accolade Wines were among the firms yet to sign up for 2015's event. Eurowines is also understood to have so far not confirmed, after exhibiting last year. 

Next year's show, running from 18 to 20 May, will move into Olympia’s Grand Hall, giving an extra 10% of space.

Ross Carter, LWF's director said: “Our priority is not to dramatically expand the show, and we remain committed to restrictions on stand size. Having said that, there is scope to increase organically and also to take advantage of a better space which is easier to navigate.”

The fair was re-named last year after previously being known as the London International Wine Fair. The re-branding also saw the show move back to Olympia earlier this year after 13 years at London's ExCeL centre.

*An earlier version of this story stated that Accolade Wines, Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) and Eurowines had confirmed they would not exhibit at the 2015 LWF. just-drinks apologises for any confusion. However, TWE has since confirmed that it will not be at the 2015 LWF
