American Association of Wine Economists

January 21-22, 2016

Venue: Montpellier Business School
Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 23, 2015Montpellier Business School, in collaboration with the American Association of Wine Economists, is pleased to welcome your presentations at our international workshop on “Innovations in the Wine Industry”. In the context of globalization and continuous technological progresses, innovation is considered the best way to ensure perpetuity and growth. In order to respond to changes in demand and supply, wineries need to innovate and adapt to a globalized market as well as to global warming (climate change). Furthermore, innovation can be important in the collaboration with customers, competitors or other stakeholders. Innovations can also be related to a change in viticulture, enology, production, management, strategy, packaging, marketing and distribution, and financing of wineries.

Keynote speakers:
– Prof. Karl Storchmann is Clinical Professor at the Economics Department of New York University, Co-Founder and Vice-President of the American Association of Wine Economists and, Co-Founder and Managing Editor of the Journal of Wine Economics. He holds a PhD and Habilitation in Economics from the University of Bochum, Germany. His research focuses on wine markets, particularly on wine prices and climate change.

– Prof. Léo-Paul Dana, a graduate of McGill University and of HEC Montreal, is Professor at Montpellier Business School and Marie Curie Fellow at Princeton University. As well, he holds the title of Adjunct Professor at the University of Regina, in Canada. He formerly served at the University of Canterbury and prior to that as Visiting Professor of Entrepreneurship at INSEAD and Deputy Director of the International Business MBA Programme at Nanyang Business School, in Singapore. He has published extensively in a variety of leading journals including the British Food Journal.
