2020 Conference Presentations

The 2020 AIDV Canadian Chapter Conference was a strong first-year success, with engaged attendees (a mix of lawyers and wine industry professionals from across the country).  Thanks to all speakers, whose practical and pragmatic presentations moved us a long way toward having the conference reflect the national scope of AIDV Canada.  Presentation slides may be found linked below:
