Sponsor Testimonials
 

"One of the most impactful shows we look forward to annually for cultivating a great networking space for both suppliers and operators that drive meaningful relationships."
Ashlee Bennick, VP National Accounts On Premise, Owen's Mixers


"Vibe is the best conference we go to every year, and I would never miss it. For an emerging brand like ours, we've made countless connections that have led our brand to grow in massive ways...including partners we've met directly (we're now the sparkling wine onboard all Delta planes in the world), Marriott (we're BTG at every Ritz-Carlton), and RNDC (our national distributor in 39 states). Without Vibe, I never would have broken in with those partners, and we're incredibly grateful!"
