Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference 2020

The Scottish Section of the Institute of Brewing & Distilling is delighted to host the seventh Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), in the heart of Scotland’s capital, from 25 May to 28 May 2020.

It’s almost 40 years since the first conference in the series conceived by The Institute of Brewing. Since then the conference and its community has grown to become the world’s leading collective of scientific practitioners dedicated to the distilled spirits business.

The 2020 conference will build on the success of the Glasgow 2017 conference to bring together academic, business, trade, government and media experts to share knowledge and learn about the latest innovations across all aspects of distilling. As well as focusing on spirit production, the conference will expand its reach to include the latest developments in product protection and authentication.

The conference will include thought-provoking presentations, posters and an extensive trade exhibition in a world class, purpose -built venue fitting to showcase ‘the spirit of diversity, knowledge and innovation’. Ulrich Adam, Director General of spiritsEUROPE is one of the Keynote speaker. 

There will also be ample opportunity for networking and exciting social events in Scotland’s magnificent capital city.

Please register your interest and follow us on Twitter for the latest news on our conference. We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh.
