untilThe American Distilling Institute is excited to announce our return to Louisville, KY for the 2021 Craft Spirits Conference & Vendor Expo. While more details on registration, lodging, etc. will follow, after our 2020 conference in New Orleans, ADI has formally signed an agreement with the Kentucky Convention Center for August 23–25, 2021, as the location of the annual conference. “ADI is thrilled to be returning once again to Louisville,” said Erik Owens, President of ADI. “Louisville is an ideal location for ADI’s annual conference and expo—it’s surrounded by historical distilleries and the Bourbon Trail, and it’s also home to an expanding craft distilling scene. The people of Louisville have welcomed us many times before, and we look forward to being back in 2021.” “The Kentucky Distillers’ Association is pleased to welcome ADI’s annual conference back to Kentucky,” said KDA President Eric Gregory, “where we can showcase and share the innovative government affairs, tourism, and social responsibility efforts fueling Kentucky’s Bourbon and distilled spirits industry.” ADI has hosted the annual Conference & Vendor Expo in Louisville 6 times since 2005, most recently in 2015, with an attendance of over 1,600 distillers and industry professionals. Louisville, long regarded as America’s bourbon capital, is home to some of the largest spirits producers in the world, as well as dozens of world-class craft distilleries making a wide range of spirits. Moonshine University, one of the country’s premier distillery training schools, also calls the city home. “Moonshine University is thrilled to welcome ADI to Louisville, the epicenter of distilling in the U.S., for their 2021 Conference,” said Moonshine University Head Of Corporate Development Kevin Hall. “The distilling landscape in Louisville has changed dramatically since ADI was last here in 2015 with the addition of several beautiful new distilleries. We love seeing so many friends and alumni back in town and look forward to meeting new distillers just entering the industry.” While still more than a year away, advanced planning is crucial for ensuring a great experience for attendees and that conference activities run smoothly “Louisville is the heart of our craft and an iconic destination for our constituents,” added ADI Conference Director Anne-Sophie Whitehead. “It is a pleasure and an honor for us to be able to return for another successful gathering of the industry and pay homage to the men and women who carry on our beautiful tradition.”
