A record number of visitors – just over 15,000 –  attended the Asian leg of Vinexpo this year, organisers have said.

The three-day trade-only wine and spirits show, held in Hong Kong this week, beat the previous record of 12,671 set in 2010. Around 50% of visitors were from overseas, including Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia and China. 

Exhibitors totalled 1,050 from 28 countries. The annual event claims to be the world's largest wines and spirits trade exhibition and alternates between Bordeaux and Hong Kong. 

Robert Beynat, Vinexpo's chief executive, said the show has become a “landmark event for the global wine and spirits industry to capitalise on the sustained growth and potential of the Asia-Pacific region, from China and Japan to south-east Asia”.

Last November, Vinexpo announced it would launch a consumer-only event in New York, as a bid to help produers engage directly with drinkers.

Next year's exhibition returns to Bordeaux between 16 and 20 June.
