for the first series of tastings in Abu Dhabi

8) The 22nd “CGI” Returns to the US!
*The Expat tasting events are being sponsored by the local chapters of
the American Business Council and the US Chamber of Commerce.
As a trade development mission, the US Commerce Department, in
cooperation with the US Embassy, have been extremely helpful in
coordinating this series of events and being able to secure all of the
necessary contacts for logistics support, import services and local
media awareness and marketing of the effort in the UAE.
This event for “CGI” is an opportunity to meet directly with the wine
buyers of many of the most premier hotel and restaurant venues in the
UAE. The opportunity to bring 25 different California Wineries directly
to the consumers and venues in this market will give our suppliers a
much desired exposure and direct market response for the future sales of
their wines in this part of the world. As the UAE represents the largest
destination port for US goods in the Middle East, this is an opportunity
to break into a very underdeveloped market for “CGI”.
“We are very excited to see this event finally come together and it
was definitely worth the additional preparation time. With access to
hundreds of direct buyers including National and Regional distributors,
Hotel and Restaurant venues, US and Local Businesses and the general
consuming community, we see this as a great opportunity for establishing
immediate sales in the region!” – Jeffrey Crittenden – CEO
