A virtual B2B wine tasting was requested for a multinational software company that designs, develops and sells workforce communications software.

The target audience comprised of senior HR and Internal Communications executives, including heads of department, directors, and vice presidents. 

The event’s agenda included a 15-minute business presentation featuring a walk through of a recently published research by the multinational software company’s Chief Revenue Officer, with the CEO also in attendance.


Before the event tasting kits (branded with the end client’s logo and details) were delivered to guests’ UK and EU addresses.

On the day The Tasting Quarter opened the event (on the client’s request) and managed all aspects of the virtual session.

Wines were tasted in virtual break-out rooms for maximum guest collaboration, engagement and discussion. The Zoom feed was left open at the end of the tasting activity for further online networking. 


20 key prospects attended the event including senior HR and Internal Communications executives from Skanska, Siemens, Verisure, Vodafone, Amcor, Novartis and Convatec.
