This year's Australian Distillers Association’s conference, will see over 400 distillers gather to gain the practical skills and tools needed to be a ‘Safe. Smart. Sustainable.’ Australian manufacturing industry.
The conference will start the 26th March 2023 with a Trade Show and Masterclasses at the Timber Yard, in Port Melbourne.
More than 30 industry service providers and guest speakers have partnered with Australian Distillers to share their industry know how, with members looking to refine their craft and take their businesses to the next level.
Australian Distillers Chief Executive, Paul McLeay, says it’s important for members to come together to network, and benefit from practical tools and presentations to develop the skills needed to ensure their ongoing success.
“Australian Distillers are ready to embrace opportunities to grow in a safe, smart, and sustainable way,” McLeay said.
“That’s why we have assembled a fantastic line-up of speakers from Australia and around the world, who will share insights, tools and programs to build on our strong foundations to inspire a new era of Australian distilling.”
McLeay added that the Conference will introduce important safety and training initiatives which will help this fast-growing industry be better prepared to exploit new opportunities for product development and market expansion.
