Every facet of the show will reflect the theme of Innovation.

Having designed the multi award winning cocktail bar Eau de Vie in Sydney along with multiple small bars in Sydney and Melbourne, Mr Almenning will share insight into how your business can stand out from the crowd.

David Paterson, Event Director with Exhibitions and Trade Fairs, the organisers of The Drinks Industry Show, said, “This is a unique opportunity for the drinks trade to hear from leaders of the industry, network with your peers and have your say in the future direction of the industry.”

“Trade visitors will be inspired to recognise their brand value and find insight into how they can increase their customer base.”
