Saving Savour for 2010

Tough economic conditions have led organisers of NZ’s premier food and wine show to decide there is not enough appetite for the event to go ahead.

Savour Food & Wine New Zealand has been cancelled for this year but organisers say the event will be back in 2010.

“Many of our sponsors are having their promotional budgets cutback, resulting in greatly reduced leveraging and marketing of the event,” said Savour New Zealand organiser, Astrid Andersen.

“After careful deliberation and to ensure the long-term success of the event, Savour New Zealand 2009 has been postponed until the end of April 2010.”

Andersen said the next six months were going to be challenging for all in the food and wine industry.
