Bar Convent Berlin, now in its seventh year, is preparing for its annual event, which is described as somewhere between a trade fair and a symposium.

Organised by the team behind Mixology magazine, the October 8-9 show now takes place at Station Berlin, Luckenwalder Str. 4–6, 10963 Berlin

Since its launch in 2007 Bar Convent Berlin has evolved into one of the year’s most important networking and exhibitors’ events for the German and central European bar industry.

The event’s comprehensive programme includes a stellar line-up of speakers, tastings, talks and seminars over the two days.

The likes of Camper English, Jim Meehan, Alex Kammerling, Phillip Duff, Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown, Charles Schumann and Alex Kratena will all be making an appearance.
