Think RUM 2017

Monday, January 16th at the Folly, London

After a hugely successful Think GIN 2016 we are delighted to announce that we will be expanding the Think brand, and launching Think RUM on Monday, January 16th at the Folly, London.

Think RUM 2017 logo

Think RUM 2017 will offer a fully interactive experience of tasting, masterclasses, networking and debate bringing together the pioneers and innovators of the Rum 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 continue to rise and excitement around the Rum category continues.

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

Get involved

We are looking to work with just a limited number of RUM producers and suppliers who will be invited to get fully involved in the programme planning and content for Think RUM 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.
