Promote your meeting space

Wineroad has teamed up with a new online event venue search called SPACES in order to promote our members’ meeting and event spaces. We would like to invite you to list your winery for free in the upcoming launch! SPACES is a wonderful new service that connects meeting planners and wedding planners with venues. Planners can search by region and capacities and contact the venues directly. The wineries can post their meeting spaces, capacities (banquet, reception etc.), photos, floor plans, contact information and amenities. See how it looks to the meeting planner:
