BCB is driven by its passion for premium and craft spirits. They welcome an environment of pioneers in the bar and beverage community. Gathering to learn, share, and generate business opportunities.
The in-person event will take place on August 17 and 18. There will be over 90 exhibitors at BCB this year including, Broken Shed and Sagamore Spirit. With wanting to teach the latest trends and offer education courses, BCB put together a team of top-notch industry professionals who will showcase the latest trends and share their knowledge.
The annual education committee will consist of the founder of Causing a Stir Alexis Brown; Cocktail Bandits founders Johnny Caldwell and Taneka Reaves; industry veteran Joshua Davis; co-founder of Speed Rack Lynnette Marrero; co-founder of Social Hour Cocktails Julie Reiner; and industry speaker Jackie Summers.
Alexis Brown, 2021 Committee member, says, “The desire to facilitate change from within and lend a fresh perspective is what inspired me to join the BCB Education Committee. I am excited to share topics that highlight and amplify the historical context of Black labor in hospitality and how those contributions heavily shaped our industry. I am excited for people to exchange a dialogue around uncomfortable topics that in turn help us heal and move forward progressively.”
