The Liquor Stores Association NSW & ACT (LSA) and the Restaurant & Catering Association (RCA), have both announced their support for the revamped 2018 Drinks Industry Show.

The show, which will be held on 18 and 19 June at Dockside in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, will see a range of workshops, seminars, tasting and networking events addressing key industry trends and challenges.

Speaking after pledging his support for the show, LSA Executive Director Michael Waters said: “The Liquor Stores Association NSW & ACT is pleased to again support and partner with The Drinks Industry Show. We look forward to collaborating to develop a strong program that delivers a unique and valuable educational and networking experience for our members and the broader retail liquor industry.”

Last year’s show received a lot of positive feedback regarding the quality of its speakers and seminar content and the 2018 program will offer the trade the opportunity to have their say on the future direction of Australia’s drinks industry.

RCA CEO Juliana Payne said: “The Drinks Industry Show offers Australia’s food and liquor industries a unique way to work together to improve the consumer experience.

“Having the perfect opportunity to trial Australian wines and beverages that suit their menus enhances the potential for Australia’s restaurants, cafés and caterers to benefit from turnover and customer loyalty. The association is proud to support this show, which clearly supports the Australian industry.”

Food & Beverage Media, which publishes TheShout, is another organisation backing the 2018 Drinks Industry Show.

Group Publisher Paul Wootton said, “Food & Beverage Media is very pleased to support the new-look Drinks Industry Show. The drinks industry in particular needs a cutting-edge forum in which suppliers can showcase their products to retailers, venue managers and bartenders all under one roof.

“For drinks professionals, a day at the show is an investment in your business and in your career; it’s an ideal way to keep up to date with the latest products and learn how to take advantage of current trends. Along with a large number of innovative exhibitors, The Drinks Industry Show will deliver a program of entertaining and educational presentations you won’t want to miss. We look forward to a great show.”
