Join Women of the Vine & Spirits and special guest, Padilla for a live webinar on
Influencing the Influencers: How to Build a Trade Marketing Program that Works Both Short and Long Term
10:00 a.m. PST / 1:00 p.m. EST
The U.S. is the most competitive and complex alcohol market in the world. Consumers look to sommeliers, bartenders and retail sales staff to help present options and guide choices. But navigating the three-tier system, state-by-state, can make trade programs complicated to concept and implement. It’s also important to balance short-term “wins” with long-term program goals that drive brand and category growth.
We’ll talk through key strategic and practical considerations, including:
- Defining your value proposition
- Refining on-premise and off-premise targets
- Customizing strategic partnerships
- Building long-term trade alliances
Join Katie Myers, vice president at Padilla, and Viviana Pinzón Correa, account supervisor at Padilla, who will draw upon their 15+ years of experience in developing and managing successful trade programs for clients such as Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Rioja.
Katie is a brand champion skilled at driving collaboration across internal and external teams. She thrives on developing brands and endearing them to the right audiences. During her career, Katie has built international campaigns that resonate with both consumer and trade audiences and has worked with clients from Patrón Tequila, Bordeaux Wines, Wines from Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Woodbridge Wines. Prior to joining Padilla, she led marketing, communication, sustainability and education initiatives at Nomacorc – the top still-wine closure brand in 10-plus countries.
