This year’s Bar & Restaurant Expo is guaranteed to be an excellent resource for anybody in the service industry! If you haven’t been yet (or you may have attended under its former name, the Nightclub & Bar Show), we highly suggest grabbing a ticket, jumping on a plane, and visiting one of the biggest bar, restaurant, and hospitality industry events in the country.

This 10,000-person event takes place March 27-29th, 2023 in Las Vegas, NV and features exposition booths, floor “happenings,” and after-hours parties. 

But there is one very special reason you should attend this year’s show: Our very own Chris Tunstall is a featured guest speaker!

We’re really excited to attend this year’s expo and couldn’t be more thrilled to participate directly!

There are a couple ways we’re involved:


Chris will be giving a power talk on how to take your cocktails from zero to pro in just an hour, offering hot tips and tricks to elevate your drinks & overall beverage program. 

While the info will be great for restaurant owners and beginning bartenders, even seasoned pros who feel stuck in a rut from time-to-time will benefit from his info. So make sure to check the schedule of events, and run over to see Chris’ chat!

We’ll also have our very own booth where you can view and buy our products in person. If you’re a bar or restaurant owner, talk with us about outfitting your establishment with our barware– and see the quality of products for yourself. 

And of course, come chat with Chris and ask him all your burning mixology questions. (He’s a really nice guy, so don’t feel too star-struck in his presence.)

  • Check out the display areas and find the newest product for your establishment.
  •  Attend the coolest industry parties, where you’ll meet other industry pros, spirit brand reps, owners of e-commerce businesses like ours, and food & cocktail lovers! Mingle with other people in the service industry, and create connections that can aid your own business and career.
