Bar Convent Berlin 2020 sets its event online this year
One of the most important drink events, Bar Convent Berlin (BCB) will take place on the internet during the autumn. Read more here.
Like many events that have had to be reported this year because of covid-19, BCB will opt for the virtual option. The event cannot take place at Messe Berlin Exhibition Center from October 12-14 as planned.
In fact, the Berlin Senate recently banned gatherings of more than 5,000 people until 24 October.
“We will offer an alternative event format in the fall. If our exhibitors and visitors cannot come to us, then we will go to them.” Said Petra Lassahn, director of BCB.
Last year’s event hosted 446 exhibitors with about 1,200 brands of wine, spirits and beer. The number of visitors also exceeded 15,000 for the first time last year.
More information on BCB’s plans for the 2020 event will be revealed in due course.
On their website they announced:
The Bar Convent Berlin 2020 will break new ground and bring its community together in the form of a BCB Special Edition. Due to the current regulations, the fair cannot take place as originally planned from 12 to 14 October at the Exhibition Centre Berlin. With the new “Pouring Digital”, the BCB team is working on an alternative concept combining live and digital events.
Other major events such as Tales of the Cocktail also announced that their Spirited Awards 2020 ceremony will be held virtually.
Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
