14th Annual Beer Industry Summit 2017 +<br>5th Annual Wine Spirits Daily Summit 2017 - San Diego


Please join us for the 5th Annual Wine & Spirits Daily Summit as we head to sunny San Diego, CA. On January 30-31, 2017 the Summit will take place at The Hotel Del Coronado - a beautiful National Historical Landmark located on Coronado Beach.


This year, we're doing something a little different. The Beer Industry Summit will take place right before the Wine & Spirits Daily Summit on January 29-30, 2017 at the Hotel Del Coronado. This event is regularly priced at $1300 per ticket. If you're looking to double your industry knowledge and network with new folks, take advantage of this offer to attend BOTH SUMMITS for discounted price of $2065.



The Wine & Spirits Daily Summit is regularly attended by top supplier, distributor and retailer executives in the U.S. wine and spirits industry, in addition to craft distillers, financial analysts, advertising executives and more. Ample networking opportunities with the "who's who" of the business guarantees you won't leave without making many new industry connections.

This Summit is the kid sister to our Beer Industry Summit, now in its 14th year. If you've ever been to one of our events, you know that we mix actionable, valuable content with fun. Our goal is to promote candid discussions and bring topics to the forefront that will help spark ideas on how to improve your business and the industry at large.
