As we have been forced to be apart for the majority of 2020, four of the world’s largest bar trade shows announced they will be joining forces with the aim to unite the global bar community. From October 12 – 18, 2020, BCB Berlin, BCB Brooklyn, BCB São Paulo and Imbibe Live will come together to bring this worldwide networking and education event to life … some might call it unprecedented like all things in 2020.
In support of the industry and the financial burdens that many of us are carrying, participation in Global Bar Week will be FREE to all attendees, and of course, due to the coronavirus pandemic, all offerings will be virtual. Global Bar Week will be packed with virtual product presentations and tastings, high-quality content, lectures and seminars, and digital networking opportunities.
Carlos Rodriguez, BCB Event Director shares about the virtual conference, “Global Bar Week is an incredible feat that will truly bring the international bar community together. Using this digital platform, we are excited to bring the essence of Bar Convent Brooklyn and our sister events into the comfort of your own home, wherever you may be in the world. Diverse educational programming, networking opportunities, and more, all available at the touch of your fingertips.”

Global Bar Week invites you to listen in and get inspired by some of the industry’s top experts in their respective fields of expertise. The topics of discussion will address many of the current concerns that members of our bar community are facing right now.
Just a few highlights to look out for are “Build Your Own Table: How to Stop Waiting For A Seat At The Table and Make Your Own Opportunities” with Jackie Summers about opportunities for advancement and equal access to capitalization, “Reaching Across the Pond: A Global Queer Perspective” with Chris Cabrera, Malayka Al-Abdullah, Stephanie Simbo, Nicole Faz and “Wealth Health: Prioritizing Your Financial Wellness” with Emily Arseneau and Joseph Ferguson.
BCB Pouring Digital’s lecture program is in the hands of Angus Winchester and ranges from contributions on the COVID-19 crisis to social justice issues, from more the super esoteric and “geeky” beverage topics to solid, craft input presentations for all interests … so there is definitely something for you to tune into.
Another not-to-miss highlight of Global Bar Week is the “7 Bars in 7 Days”. Attendees will get a look behind the scenes of some of the top bars from all over the world. Among them are Kwant from London, Katana Kitten from New York City, El Copitas from St. Petersburg, Jigger and Pony from Singapore, Above Board from Melbourne, Velvet Bar from Berlin and Floreria Atlantico from Buenos Aires. The bars invite you to take a virtual tour, provide insights into their concepts and venue, signature drinks and discuss how to deal with the pandemic in their respective global markets.
Whether it’s via BCB Berlin, BCB Brooklyn, BCB São Paolo or Imbibe Live – when it comes to networking, it doesn’t matter which of the trade fairs you are registered with for Global Bar Week. To get the maximum benefit from the the four industry events coming together, all Global Bar Week participants are brought together in a joint matchmaking pool. As with a dating platform, the profiles of the participants can be precisely matched thanks to industry-specific and interest-based filters. Once the matches agree to exchange contact information, company representatives and visitors can develop personal connections from a distance via live video chats in the Global Bar week platform.
From education, to catching new products and trends, to meeting friends across the world, Global Bar Week has something for everyone to tune into.
