Think Gin 2017

March 7th 2017 | The Happenstance, London

After the huge success of this year’s Think GIN, we are delighted to announce that we will return again March 7th 2017 at The Happenstance, London.

Think GIN 2017 will offer a fully interactive experience of tasting, masterclasses, networking and debate bringing together the pioneers and innovators of the GIN category, with the relevant on and off trade buyers – from supermarkets, c-stores, online retailers, wholesalers, off licences and independent wine merchants to mixologists, bar and hotel bar owners and managers and restaurateurs – the key players whose input is critical in ensuring the sales boom and excitement around the Gin category continues.

Think Gin 2017 will be hosted and media supported by the leading trade publications, Harpers, Off Licence News, and CLASS. magazine.   Each will be dedicating extensive pre and post event coverage both in print and online and in dedicated Think GIN mailings to their respective buyer audiences.

Get involved
We are looking to work with just a limited number of Gin producers and tonic / mixer suppliers who will be invited to get fully involved in the programme planning and content for Think GIN 2017. This is not an exhibition where you will get lost in the crowd. This is a targeted and focused event where you will be just one of a small number of brands in front of a genuine buying audience.

“The event was great, thank you for letting me be a part of it. It was very interesting and insightful. I would be more than happy to take part in any panels in the future”

Alex Wrethman – Owner, Charlotte’s Group

“Thank you very much for having us at Think Gin this year, I think it was very informative and a great way to showcase the growth Gin has had in the last year. It was a pleasure being on the panel and having Olivier do the masterclasses, we'd be very keen to speak further if you intend on doing other events within Gin.”

Emile Ward - Gin Foundry

“We were very glad to be a part of Think Gin and big compliment for the high quality of the visitor.”

Vincent Honrodt – CEO, Berlin Dry Gin
