Highlights at this year's convention include product and supplier showcases in two exhibit halls and sold out traditional and lower level hospitality suites representing over 150 top brands, as well as a multitude of innovative products.

The event also includes live tastings and competitions that will feature quality wine, spirits and malt beverages, as well as original cocktail recipes created by top mixologists.
