After an unexpected hiatus of over two years and one of the most difficult periods for the spirits, hospitality and bartending industry, an event like the Roma Bar Show is more important than ever before. And now we can all finally come together to support and celebrate a sector that needs and deserves it.

the Roma Bar Show is an international bar and beverage trade show dedicated to the spirits industry and world of mixology. And it’s only appropriate that it be held in Rome “Caput Mundi” the capital of Italy, leader in the hospitality sector.

This two-day global event for both exhibitors and visitors has an impressive program of seminars, masterclasses, guest speakers, special guest bartender shifts, and a full side show of events and special menus at select bars around Rome after-hours. Not to mention thousands of spirits and alcohol brands. But not just…RBS features other beverages, non-alcoholic, specialty coffee and food.
