Jackie Fast will speak at this year’s IBWSS show

Run by Beverage Trade Network, the 2019 IBWSS show will take place at the Royal Horticultural Halls in London on 11 and 12 March, following the inaugural London show last year. It is the UK’s biggest private label, bulk wine, bulk spirits and contract brewing event.

During the show, Fast will speak about ‘The parallels of being on The Apprentice and launching a drinks brand’. The reality TV star launched her ice wine brand, Rebel Pi, at The Wine & Spirits Show last year.

The talk will cover five points that helped Fast launch her new business: run before you can walk; move faster than your competitors; bring something to the people that they don’t know they want; overcome people challenges; and the proof is in the pudding.

Other speakers at this year’s IBWSS will include: Paul Attwood-Philippe, business development director Europe, Vinex; Rob Dixon, senior buying manager, Tesco; Richard Lloyd, general manager, Accolade Wines; Marc Meek, CEO, IWSR; Catherine Mendoza, wine broker, Ciatti Europe; and Paul Schaafsma, managing director, Benchmark Drinks, among others.
