WE KNOW YOU’RE BUSY, BUT YOUR HELP IS NEEDED WITH THE INDUSTRY’S ECONOMIC IMPACT STUDY
Your assistance helps build the case for future industry support
We ask this just once every three years.
That’s how often the OWB commissions this critical research. The published report provides information that is used in several ways, notably:
Making the case for state and federal grants to advance individual, regional or statewide marketing and research initiatives
Communicating with local and federal lawmakers about the needs of the industry
Portraying our industry accurately to journalists telling the story of the Oregon wine industry
Building understanding between wine businesses and their county-level committees and boards of commissioners
Ordinarily, this update would focus exclusively on 2019. However given the unusual external forces that our industry is experiencing, we have expanded the project scope to gather additional insights to better understand the effects of the pandemic and provide estimates for 2020.
We have contracted with Economic Forensics & Analytics, Inc. (EFA) and Full Glass Research (FGR) to complete this study. While several data sources will be used as they conduct their analysis, the researchers require your completed survey. Direct input from winery and vineyard managers across the state is vital to the study’s success.
To help you prepare, you can download a PDF with the information requested. Once you have gathered that information, it should take you less than 10 minutes to key it into the online form by Sept. 15.
Thank you in advance for supporting your industry in this way.
PRIVACY NOTE: Responses will be incorporated with data from other sources to create the final Oregon Wine Industry Economic Impact Study. Only researchers at Economic Forensics & Analytics, Inc. and Full Glass Research will have access to individual data, and your responses will not be shared with any third-party, including the Oregon Wine Board or any other public or private entities.
CONTACT INFORMATION: If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact Robert Eyler of Economic Forensics & Analytics, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 707-318-0348 as needed.
