New P(our) Symposium to focus on ‘perfection’

5th January, 2018 by Amy Hopkins

The P(our) Symposium – a bartender collective that explores a wide variety of issues in the industry – has announced that its third annual event will focus on the theme of ‘perfection’.

The third annual P(our) Symposium will take place at a new venue

The two-day event will be held at the Le Palais de Tokyo in Paris on 3 and 4 June 2018 and will “examine the industry’s relationship with perfection and its ability to consume and dictate the path for so many”.

Talks, workshops and discussions will be hosted by drinks personalities and authorities from other professions, showcasing cross-industry collaborations.

“The Symposiums are always designed to evoke a real mix of emotions and this year is no different,” said P(our) co-founder and Himkok bartender Monica Berg. “Exploring perfection will be equally as inspiring, uncovering a range of personal connections to perfection that we may have not seen or considered before.

“As our industry continues to grow, so do the people in it, and we truly believe that the world is ready to address this huge and philosophical topic.”

Le Palais de Tokyo is a new venue for the event and offers capacity for approximately 30% more participants.

P(our) was established in 2016 by former Artesian bartenders Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale, along with Oslo-based Berg, New York City’s Jim Meehan, London’s Ryan Chetiyawardana and Xavier Padovani, and Hamburg’s Joerg Meyer.

The ‘bartender collective’ in a non-profit that seeks to “build a holistic community for the global drinks industry”. The first P(our) Symposium focused on ‘the modern bartender’, while the second annual event centred on gender.
