BORDEAUX, France, April 11 (AFP) - The biggest international trade fair for the wine and spirits industry, Vinexpo, is to stage a three-day overseas exhibition in Hong Kong in May 2006, the French organisers announced Monday.

The event - Vinexpo's sixth overseas fair - "shows that the company is clearly determined to continue its efforts to support the industry's operators in growth markets," a statement said.

Hong Kong was the site of Vinexpo's first event outside France in 1998. Sale of space for the show - from May 23 to 25 next year - will start in June, Vinexpo said.

Vinexpo was set up in 1981 in the Bordeaux wine-growing area of France, where it holds two-yearly trade fairs.
