New York, NY. January 10, 2016 – USA Trade Tasting announced that exhibitor registrations for the Grand Tasting are officially sold out. Occupying both floors of the celebrated Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City on March 21-23, the event will host 160 exhibitors who will showcase wine, beer and spirits brands from more than 20 countries including the USA.

American importers and distributors looking to source new international brands for their portfolio will find this event of particular interest. With masterclasses on a wide variety of categories and regions, in addition to the traditional trade tasting hall, the grand tasting is set to give US buyers access to one of the largest forums for international beverage representatives.

Major international organizations will be in attendance, including Wines of South Africa, Wines of Australia, Wines of Chile, Wines of Portugal, New York Wines as well as hundreds of private groups and independent beer brands and craft spirit brands.

“We are extremely pleased by the overwhelming response we’ve received for USATT” said Sid Patel, CEO of USA Trade Tasting and Beverage Trade Network. “With the last few exhibitor registrations coming in at the end in December, we’ve officially sold out. We couldn’t have asked for a better caliber of suppliers for this year’s event. More importantly suppliers exhibiting understand the dynamics of USA market and are ready to support their new distributor and importer partners”

The grand tasting will also include the event’s Brand Pitch Sessions, a unique match-making service being offered at USA Trade Tasting. The initiative will partner importers and distributors with suppliers who closely match their buying requirements.

USA Trade Tasting will conclude with the Business Conference on March 23, 2016. The conference will consist of TED-Style talks with industry leaders speaking on best practices being used in the import and distribution industry.
