Vinexpo 2015 will take place from 14 to 18 June

Vinexpo has confirmed that its flagship exhibition in Bordeaux will next be held from Sunday 14 to Thursday 18 June next year.

It will be the 18th edition of the biennial wine trade show since it was established in 1981. The 2015 event is expected to include some consumer-focussed activity, away from the main exhibition space, and a greater focus on spirits.

In an interview with just-drinks earlier this year, Vinexpo CEO Guillaume Deglise said separate consumer activity is a “possibility” depending on a trial at the group's Tokyo event in November

Spirits currently make up around 15% of the Bordeaux show, but Deglise said: “We believe we can do more as the ... spirits market is growing.”

Nearly 49,000 people attended the last Vinexpo in Bordeaux, a 1.5% increase in numbers on the previous event.

Vinexpo's Asia-Pacific show takes place in Hong Kong later this month.
