About the World Spirits Conference

The World Spirits Conference is a leading summit for debate and discussion of global trends in the spirits industry.

Presentations and panels analyse international product, design, sales and marketing trends across both white and brown spirits. The programme is designed in consultation with a distinguished panel of industry experts and is aimed at all spirits producers, regardless of geographical location. Speakers are most often senior marketing, innovation and sales directors, alongside specialists in digital, luxury, FMCG and insight. The World Spirits Conference is a trade event aimed at brand management, marketing, communications, sales and packaging professionals of global drinks producers and is also attended by suppliers and agencies.

Delegates generally range from mid-senior to director level. Expect to meet Brand, Marketing, Communications,  Innovation and Packaging professionals, alongside colleagues from Sales and Regional Management, and Managing Directors, CEOs and Chairpersons. Also in attendance are senior executives from service industries such as marketing, PR, advertising, finance, packaging, bottling and more.
