"I am always very happy with many of the events that take place during VIBE. The breakout sessions are very informative and I return to my concepts feeling like I have new ideas and education that helps me push my concept forward. The opportunity to see many of my current and potential new vendors in such an open environment is very helpful to know who I am using and what opportunities exist in the new future." Brian Bell, VP Beverage, Abuelo's Mexican Restaurants

“At the Hilton, there was a sense —a vibe —that something fundamental has changed in the craft beer industry. While the conference will host wine tastings and whiskey samplings, beer may be the buzziest topic. Canadian beer writer Stephen Beaumont will talk about how restaurants can build a smart beer list, and Adam Dulye, executive chef of the Brewers Association, and Julia Herz, the association’s craft beer program director, will lead an exploration of food-and-beer pairing options.” –The San Diego Union-Tribune

“Hosted by celebrity mixologist and beverage expert Tony Abou-Ganim, the two-day conference offers chain beverage executives and operators access to interactive and educational workshops, beverage tastings, original beverage research and an impactful keynote session. Additionally, there will be invaluable networking opportunities to re-energize you for the coming year of 2016!” –In the Mix Magazine
