Big supermarket chains and importers wine buyers such as Alexandra Pouderoyen (HEMA Wine Department), Anneke Staals (MITRA Wine Department), Petra Janssen MV (Importer Vinites), Joep Speet MV (Importer Delta Wines) and Ibert Van der Wal MV (Importer Wijnimport J. Bart), top-level sommeliers such as Noel van Wittenbergh (Head Sommelier Okura Hotel Amsterdam) and Job Seuren (Vice President Dutch Sommelier Association.

A showcase, Best of Spain Wine Challenge, which completed its intense tasting program with two seminars programmed for showing to a large group of Dutch professionals the potential that our most eastern wine latitudes have. The Denomination of Origin Valencia with a collection of autochthonous ambassadors and the Denomination of Origin Jumilla with a no less interesting tour of Monastrell and its range of expressions were the protagonists of these masterclasses for which there were two luxury speakers: the sommelier and communicator Edwin Raben and the Master of Wine Cees van Casteren.
