ADI Craft Spirits Conference & Expo Rescheduled to July 14-16, 2020

Thank you to everyone for your patience and flexibility in these uncertain times. We’ve received numerous emails and messages of support for our careful approach along with the desire to keep business moving forward.

We are genuinely touched by your kind words and loyalty. Working with our New Orleans partners we have been able to secure a new date: July 14-16 in New Orleans, at the Hyatt Regency.

We have chosen the new dates to be safely outside of the current window of containment, yet early enough to allow for all of us to build strong business relationships for the rest of the year.

 

CURRENT REGISTRATIONS

To follow conference industry best practices, all registrations will be transferred to the rescheduled conference, including workshops and sessions. If you are unable to attend the July event, we can transfer your registration to the 2021 conference in Louisville, KY. There will be no administrative fee for either option.

Please click here by 3/31 to indicate your preference: http://bit.ly/2TZZlSt. If we have not heard from you, we will assume that you will join us in New Orleans.

Over the coming weeks, we will be creating ways of keeping our community connected to offer online learning options to our attendees.

 

FUTURE REGISTRATIONS

We will reopen registration on April 6.  This will allow people who had not been able to register by March 13 to do so. At this time, we can help you add staff or sessions to existing registrations. Please email admin@distilling.com.

 

CLASSES

Please see the chart below for the new July classes and session dates. 

We are already working to ensure that our speakers and our sessions go on as scheduled and will update our online schedule.
Should we be forced to cancel a workshop, we will advise immediately.

ADI CRAFT SPIRITS AWARDS

We know that announcement of the awards are critical to your ability to market your achievements. We will announce the awards online and via our social media as scheduled on April 7. For now, there will be no awards gala in July, and refunds will be made as appropriate.

HOTEL

We have negotiated for our hotel rate at the Hyatt to remain the same despite local hotels expecting to raise rates due to extra demand on those dates. You will need to call the hotel to cancel your April registration and re-book your July registration.

AIRFARE

Most airlines will allow air change at no cost. Please click on this link for more information: http://bit.ly/2TVfmch
