Lausanne, 28th March 2017 - Last week the organizing committee of the Fête des Vignerons unveiled impressive plans for the next edition of this rather exceptional event set to take place in 2019. This massive event has been organized by the Confrérie des Vignerons for over 200 years and occurs more or less every 20 years in Vevey.
EHL is proud to be an Official Partner of the upcoming 2019 edition, further demonstrating the school's efforts to fulfill its role as a leading influencer and contributor to the local Romandie landscape and economy.
The organizing committee showcased the plans of a spectacular central stadium that will be erected on the Place du Marché in Vevey with seating for 20,000 people and staging covering 1,400 m2. The structure will take 4 months to build and will host a month of festivities and world-class performances during the event itself (July 26th to August 11th).
We are excited to be part of an international event that is close to home and, in particular, one which is directly connected the world of hospitality.
