The looks, the smell and, of course, the taste: spirit tastings are all about details as everyone knows who has ever taken part in a BCB Tasting. The professional tastings will also be offered this year but as part of the virtual BCB Pouring Digital trade show from 12 to 18 October 2020.

This October, four pockets of the globe from Berlin, Brooklyn, São Paulo to London, come together for the first time to unite Bar Convent and Imbibe Live trade fairs across one virtual platform, Global Bar Week. This global project is a celebration of those who shake up the drinks industry and as a way to bring everyone together when we are unable to connect physically.

The Bar Convent Berlin 2020 will break new ground and bring its community together in the form of a BCB Special Edition. Due to the current regulations, the fair cannot take place as originally planned from 12 to 14 October at the Exhibition Centre Berlin. With the new "Pouring Digital", the BCB team is working on an alternative concept combining live and digital events.

The choice was an obvious one – a bartender with deep roots in Berlin’s bar scene, someone who is an expert at his craft and well versed in premium products and hospitality, and a vocal proponent of international exchange. Damien Guichard, bar manager at the Truffle Pig since 2019, is Bar Convent Berlin’s first Brand Ambassador.

Final Report: “Tasty, amazing, fantastico, formidable, comunicativo” – these are some of things said by the 15,162 visitors who travelled to the BCB in Berlin from 86 countries to test new creations, do business, generate knowledge or simply meet their friends in the global community. Never before had so many countries been represented at the BCB. The Bar Convent Berlin has been the most important international event for the bar and spirits industry for twelve years now.

The BCB is moving to a new home: Berlin ExpoCenter City. Following stays in Berlin’s ‘Glashaus’, the ‘Postbahnhof am Ostbahnhof’ and ‘Station Berlin’, the event will have a new home beneath the Funkturm starting in 2020.
