We were lucky enough to be able to join some of you at the New York Wine Expo this past weekend; and what a weekend it was. Thousands of wine lovers (and some more ‘likers’), sampling hundreds of wineries’ newest offerings to see what they may like to pick up a bottle of, or stock for their store (Sunday was trade only).
On Saturday, we were lulling around the show, enjoying the odd tipple – more on that later – when we noticed that everyone was taking pictures of the bottles to remember. We couldn’t just stand idly by and watch this happen – Corkbin to the rescue. After the 4th or 5th person that we introduced to Corkbin (they all loved it!), we decided to throw together a promotion for Sunday. 12 hours later – 4 people on the ground handing out 1,000 coasters repurposed as flyers and on Sunday – dozens of people around the show floor could be seen taking hundreds of wine images, making tasting notes and saving the list of wines they want to stock for their stores.
Hopefully, Corkbin proved useful to everyone who discovered it on Sunday – and we’d love to hear any feedback that our new users have.
Now – back to the show. (more…)
