Artisan Distillers Canada to host conference and trade show in Vancouver

A new two-day event dedicated to Canadian artisan distillers

A new conference and trade show from Artisan Distillers Canada is happening in Vancouver next month. The two-day event will aim to provide Canada‚Äôs artisan distilling community with an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and bolster their knowledge on technical- and business-related topics that are relevant to the industry. 

The Artisan Distillers Canada Conference and Trade Show will kick off at the Vancouver Convention Centre on October 24 with a pair of workshops focused on the art of whisky blending and how to manage yeast and bacteria to craft unique spirits. 

The conference continues on October 25 with a series of seminars that cover topics such as distillery build-outs, retail practices, international exports, and more. Throughout the second day, event-goers will also have a chance to meet and mingle with industry experts, top suppliers, and service providers. 

Artisan Distillers Canada is currently offering a limited number of bursaries to support attendance from communities that are generally underrepresented in the distilling industry. Women and members of the BIPOC community are encouraged to apply online

Tickets to the conference and trade show can be purchased via Eventbrite. The complete conference schedule along with information about presenters and speakers can be found at Canadian Distillers Canada.
