We are very pleased to announce that the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary February 24th - 27th, 2011, will have an important new addition for this very special year- a pavilion at the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village dedicated to Italian wines. Southern suppliers will have the exclusive opportunity to showcase their wines in this pavilion for the duration of the 3 day event. The festival attracts more than  50,000 visitors every year and is a well known national event for wine and food lovers.

In the central exhibition location, the Italian pavilion will provide space for a select number of wineries, as well as space to host a series of seminars and events so that Italy really makes its mark on this year’s festival. A special Italian Gala Dinner will take place during the Festival, providing another opportunity to highlight the spectacular Wines of Italy.

The Italian wine pavilion will be organized by IEEM (International Event & Exhibition Management), the Miami  based branch of IEM (International Exhibition Management), the Italian agency which has been specialized in organizing wine events around the globe for the past ten years. Should you be interested in participating at the event with your tasting station and being part of giving next year’s edition of the largest wine and food festival in America a uniquely Italian flair, please don’t hesitate to contact IEM in Verona or IEEM in Miami for further details:
