Donat Miss a Minute of VIBEas Interactive Sessions

The chill of winter is upon us, but its spring 2013 in the minds of the VIBE Conference team as we lock down our power-packed program of speakers and workshops. Delivering a program of this caliber takes analysis feedback, careful attention to current trends and challenges and outreach to the top industry experts, influencers and innovators. We strive to ensure the information, data and ideas you obtain while at VIBE are meaningful and actionable – and also unique to VIBE attendees.

This year VIBE 2013 – taking place March 20-21 in Las Vegas – will feature three extraordinary keynote presentations, twelve different workshops and infinite networking opportunities in one of the world’s most exciting cities. Each session focuses on a topic of relevance to high volume on-premise executives and suppliers on marketing, consumer and beverage trends, and a variety of topics on Wine, Beer, Spirits, and Alcohol-free beverages.  Sessions include workshops, keynotes, panel presentations, tastings, trends and cutting edge research, all with the latest information.
