Bar Convent Brooklyn reveals 2023 dates
On-trade show Bar Convent Brooklyn (BCB) has revealed the dates for its in-person fair in June 2023.
The fifth iteration of the US-based event will take place from 13-14 June next year, returning to Industry City in Brooklyn, New York with a larger show floor.
The location was selected earlier this year, and is bigger than its previous site, the Brooklyn Expo Center. This allows the show to expand its offerings and provide exhibitors with more space.
This year, the 2022 Brooklyn event welcomed nearly 4,000 industry professionals and 163 exhibitors from 55 countries. Fifty new products debuted at the event and more than 300,000 drinks and spirit samples were served.
“We are overjoyed to be heading back to Industry City next year,” said Jackie Williams, event director for BCB.
“2022 was a huge success, with visitor numbers surpassing pre-pandemic, so we can’t wait to return to an even bigger space, with a fresh line-up of new exhibitors.”
Fourteen extra seminars are being added to the roster, plus additional tastings and a demonstration stage. Also, a revised floor plan will make way for an abundance of exciting sponsorship and networking opportunities.
Official registration for BCB is slated to open in the coming months.
BCB also announced the return of Lynnette Marrero as head of education for the 2023 show, with other committee members to be announced later in the year.
“Mark your calendars for June 2023,” added Williams. “It’s set to be the biggest Bar Convent Brooklyn yet.”
