Event: American Distilling Institute Conference and Trade Show. San Diego, CA
April 4-7, 2016
With more than 1,400 attendees in 2015, up from 1,000 the previous year, The American Distilling Craft Spirits Conference & Expo saw a growth in exhibitor presence of more than 40% in the same period. This gathering of the distilled-spirits community generated rousing enthusiasm and satisfaction from both attendees and exhibitors, establishing the ADI conference as the premier and top-attended conference in the craft spirits industry. The 2016 conference brings us to yet another not-to-be missed location.
San Diego boasts more than 100 breweries, bringing in an economic impact of $600 million dollars last year and more than 10 distilleries nearby. It is a town suited for our industry and boiling with excitement about craft—and the California craft distilling community is one of the largest in the country.
Join me at my presentation on April 5th at 1:30pm. Topic: The 80/20 Rule, Why Consumers Purchase Package Over Product.
