Vinitaly 2012 dates changed (again) to March 25-28

According to a Facebook post by top Italian wine blogger Alfonso Cevola, Ms. Stevie Kim (Senior Advisor to Veronafiere CEO Giovanni Mantovani) reports that the dates for Vinitaly 2012 have been changed once again.

The news dates, according to Cevola’s post, are Sunday-Wednesday, March 25-28.

In a statement circulated during Vinitaly 2011, Veronafiere had announced the new dates would be April 1-4. Kim’s current statement evidently supersedes the previously released information.

The change from a Thursday-Monday to Sunday-Wednesday schedule was prompted by a desire to make the event more conducive to “business” and reduce the participation of non-trade fair-goers. See the previous VinoWire post for background.
