2024 Vibe Conference Was the Largest Ever!

Questex’s Vibe Conference, the premiere on-premise beverage conference for beverage executives, had record attendance with more than 900 attendees including chain restaurants, hotels, cruise lines, airlines, distributors, consultants, and agencies. The conference was held at the Town & Country Resort in San Diego, California February 26-28.

Tim McLucas, Vice President of Bar & Restaurant Group, said, “Vibe Conference 2024 was the largest event in our 15-year history, and attracted the biggest growth in first-time operator attendees, up 35% from 2023. The strong demand for new business relationships and new product innovation, highlights the importance of high-quality education and face to face interaction with industry stakeholders.”

Throughout the three day program, operators learned about the latest beverage trends through education workshops, beverage tastings, research sessions and networking opportunities, with some of the most popular sessions addressing “Decoding Generational Trends to Shape the Future of Your Business”, “How To Create a Regional, National, Multi-Beverage Program”, “How to Better Leverage Distributor Insights and Resources”, “Building A Better RFP”, and “Global Cocktail Trends”.

CORE Children of Restaurant Employees (CORE) is a 501(c)(3) a national non-profit and the charity of choice for the Vibe Conference. It was founded by members of the beverage vertical. CORE raised a total of $72,000 for families in the food and beverage industry facing terminal illnesses or sudden losses. 

Vibe Conference 2025 will take place March 3-5, 2025 at Town & Country Resort in San Diego, California.
