The Third Annual Vancouver International Tequila Expo (VITE) is Western Canada’s largest festival dedicated to Mexico’s number one export spirit. The festival aims to increase the presence of tequila in Western Canada.
British Columbia tequila sales in 2012 reached $24 million and are growing every year, especially in the high-end premium category. In fact, since our inaugural 2012 event, BC tequila sales have increased more than 9%. This year’s VITE, with the help of the Consulate General of Mexico, ProMexico, Mexico Tourism Board and the BC Hospitality Foundation as our Charity Partner, will fuel that growth even further.
Our Main Event is a public Grand Tasting Hall (1500 tickets available) with an afternoon trade component to ensure maximum exposure to tequila products and a large customer base. During Vancouver Agave Week (May 26-31), we are holding tequila seminars, master classes, and pairing dinners at venues around Vancouver to further promote tequila and other agave spirits.
