Award & Event Partners

The Wine Industry Impact Awards aim to celebrate the impact of value chain partnerships on the capability and competitiveness of Australian Wine Producers. The awards will highlight proven practical and implementable concepts, technologies, services and solutions.

The awards are based on presented nominations across seven categories including grape growing, wine making, engineering, packaging, distribution & logistics, marketing & communication and tourism. This year we are excited to have included Engineering as a new category along with also recognising a Start-Up category. The nominees are assessed on a criteria focusing on improvements and resulting impact in competitiveness & brand equity and capability of Australian wine producers.

At the gala awards evening, held at the prestigious Adelaide Town Hall on the 19th October, the industry will gather key industry leaders to create networks to enhance opportunities for a greater sharing of expertise in and between the various regions and business groups represented.

The event will also play host to the main annual fundraising activities towards WISA’s official charity partner the Leukaemia Foundation and we encourage all attendees to support this worthy cause. We aim to raise $5,000 for the Foundation’s important work in supporting those impacted by blood cancer.
