Speakers announced for BCB; Tales seminar ideas being sought

It’s a great time of year for celebrating bartenders and all things bar-related. Sydney Bar Week kicks off on Saturday 17 September, so if you haven’t booked your flights yet, click here to check out the jam-packed timetable and make sure you RSVP to events — and get your tickets to the Indie Tasting being held at Frankie’s — as soon as you can.

In October, you might want to consider a trip north — and we mean way, way north — to Germany. Bar Convent Berlin is back for its 10th year, and they’ve just announced a roll call of great international speakers who will take part in the huge, two day event.

Taking place on October 11 and 12, if you get your way there — and, having visited last year, we can recommend it (we’ll back again this year, too) — you’ll get to hear from luminaries of the bar world like global rum ambassador, Ian Burrell; New York Times drinks writer Robert Simonsson will be there talking about the history of the cocktail revival; Jared Brown and Anistatia Miller will be there, as will bartender and author of The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace, Tristan Stephenson, and many more.

For more information on Bar Convent Berlin, visit barconvent.com.

So that’s October sorted. For those of you thinking of planning a trip to New Orleans next year to hit up Tales of the Cocktail (an event which, again, we can highly recommend despite what your liver may feel about it) then you may want to consider submitting an idea for a seminar.


Submissions for seminar proposals are open now, and it’s a great way to contribute to the debate and continued evolution of the bar industry. They’re accepting submissions from now until December 1st, so click here to find out more about the process.
