Bar Convent Brooklyn has announced the opening of registration for its 2023 show. Returning to Brooklyn’s Industry City on 13 and 14 June, this year’s event marks the fifth in-person show, boasting increased space with more exhibitors, demonstrations and seminars.

This year’s show will feature 14 additional seminars, making for more than 50 educational sessions in total. The Main Stage’s sessions will see industry experts come together to share a range of insights, including new additions to the program like Samantha Casuga, Head Bartender at Temple Bar; Touré Folkes, founder and Program Director of Turning Tables; and Sarah Troxell, Bar Director at Daiquiri Time Out. Also sharing insight will be Lynnette Marrero, co-founder of Speed Rack and Beverage Consultant, as well as John deBary, author of Saved By The Bellini.

Focusing on an array of topics, guests will learn unique ways to use old favourites, hear about new brands and discover the culture surrounding different expressions, through talks including Aperitivo and Amaro – The Future of Italian Spirits in Modern Mixology; WTF is Singani: Bringing the Newest Spirit Category to the United States; and Beyond Visibility – Indigenous Collaboration in the Modern Bar Space.

“The education program is the cornerstone of Bar Convent Brooklyn, offering opportunities to learn about the latest trends, use insights as jumping off points for discussions, develop friendships and much more,” explains Jackie Williams, Bar Convent Brooklyn Event Director. “We’re really excited for this year’s schedule and can’t wait for our attendees to experience it.”

Since the inaugural show in 2018, the event has provided a collaborative environment in which industry professionals discuss and celebrate liquid culture. Williams continues: “The growth of Bar Convent Brooklyn has been absolutely incredible. Last year, we reached pre-pandemic numbers, and we know this year will be even more successful. We have really compelling programming and educational sessions that will be sure to delight and inspire attendees. Bar Convent Brooklyn has been and always will be a place for industry friends to come together to learn about the newest trends, try the newest spirits or rediscover some old favourites, network and much more, and I’m excited to welcome everyone to this year’s show.”
