Meet at Tales
Q MIXERS is the Official Mixer for Tales of the Cocktail® 2021. Both brands have come together to inspire and impact the industry, in another transitional year. As the world begins to reopen and acclimate to hybrid digital and physical gatherings, Q MIXERS and the Foundation invite the global drinks industry to Meet at Tales for Tales of the Cocktail 2021 taking place September 20 -23.
Meet at Tales is a virtual opportunity to connect with and learn from leaders in the industry. Tales of the Cocktail 2021 registrants were able to apply for an opportunity to meet one-on-one with some of the industry’s most influential leaders, from entrepreneurs and distillers to bar-owners and educators.
Each Industry Leader will select six lucky Tales of the Cocktail 2021 registrants to Meet at Tales for a 15-minute conversation and receive a custom cocktail kit developed by the Q MIXERS Industry Leader they are paired with. Following Tales, each Industry Leader will select one individual for a one-hour follow-up conversation.
Additionally, Q MIXERS will also host a series of Mix at Tales Happy Hour events, opening up this intimate opportunity to get to know each Q MIXERS Industry Leader. These moderated virtual discussions will feature two of the Q MIXERS Meet at Tales Industry Leaders who will share their experience and field questions from the global drinks community, and enjoy a cocktail of course!
