EPCAS looks back on a great Assembly in Bordeaux, France

From February 5th to 7th, the EPCAS Winter General Assembly 2017 took place in Bordeaux. We look back on three wonderful days, with lots of inspiration and possibilities to share knowledge and experiences. Next to that, this Assembly focused strongly on wine, and we were indulged in all that Baron Philippe de Rothschild has to offer, combined with plenty of culinary highlights.

With 60 attendees, representing 36 companies from 15 European countries, we can look back on another succesful Assembly. A special thank you goes out to Nicolas Rochon from Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Philippe and Romain Capdevielle from Capdevielle Traiteur and Didier and Jérémie Oudin from Groupe Arom & Lacoste Traiteur.

On Sunday February 5th we kicked-off the meeting with the re-election of Ruedi as EPCAS President and the election of Tom Steffen as a new EPCAS Board member, who were both unanimously (re-)elected. Next to that, we discussed EPCAS matters, elaborating on Corporate Social Responsibility and the upcoming Assembly in Basel.

On Monday February 6th we were also treated with a wonderful cocktail lunch by Capdevielle Traiteur , followed by a wine tasting from the branded wines of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, a showcase by Coravin and a tour of the Labottière Mansion, all at Institut Culturel Bernard Magrez. In the evening we were spoiled with a beautiful dinner at Palais de la Bourse, also hosted by Capdevielle Traiteur. They incorporated a show element in the dessert and gave us an evening to remember.

On Tuesday February 7th we visited the impressive Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Clerc Milon, and learned about the history of the Rothschild imperium. We ended the Assembly with a lunch at the rustic Carré du Lac, hosted by Groupe Arom.

We would like to thank the hotel and all locations and companies that welcomed us in Bordeaux. A special thanks goes out to all of our friends who made the Winter General Assembly 2017 possible:

Baron Philippe de Rothschild / Capdevielle Traiteur / Groupe Arom & Lacoste Traiteur / Palais de la Bourse / Institut Culturel Bernard Magrez / Coravin / Le Noailles / InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel

Our next General Assembly will be hosted in the Summer of 2017, from July 30th to August 1st in Basel, Switzerland.
