If you’re past the point of just starting to practice wine collecting, you’ve probably met a lot of different and interesting people who share your passion. Maybe you’ve spent a lot of time at an online forum conversing energetically about a recent vintage of shiraz, or spent a half hour longer than you expected at your local wine shop getting a crash course on the best white wine to serve to your dinner party. Through wine clubs and wine tastings, you may also have met a number of people who are involved in direct wine shipping, who have as much to say about the business of wine as they do about the aesthetics and taste of it. If you have such friends and acquaintances, you might want to send them a heads-up about a useful seminar occurring next week.
Shipcompliant is a software company that caters specificially to the needs of wine-shipping businesses, providing programs that make their work more efficient, effective, and profitable. They also offer virtual seminars for industry professionals a few times per year. Their next such “webinar,” Direct Shipping Updates and Compliance Best Practices, will be taking place this coming Monday, November 8 from 1-2:30 pm PST (3-4:30 pm CST). Among the topics being discussed are state-by-state compliance changes and the current status of the legislative battle being fought over HR 5034.
With free registration and the ability to attend just a few clicks of a mouse away, this is one of the most convenient ways to learn more about the state of the direct wine shipping business today. You might not necessarily be interested in the particulars yourself, but chances are that somebody you know is—and their knowledge is likely to help your own wine experience the next time you come to one of their events. So pass it on!
