Tales of the Cocktail Foundation announced this week that it has postponed its annual conference, Tales of the Cocktail, and Spirited Awards announcements and programming until September 2020. The conference will remain fully digital and will run from Monday, September 21 through Thursday, September 24.
“While we all continue to navigate the challenges presented to our industry during this global pandemic, we are also aware of the unique circumstances impacting the communities we serve,” the Foundation says. “As some bars in the United States (and around the world) begin to reopen in what historically is known as a slow season, we understand the increased challenges that travel restrictions and limited capacity pose on our entire industry. For more than 15 years, New Orleans has been a destination for our extended family, but this year our beloved city will feel distant too. We are taking the time to plan, so we can bring all of our communities closer.”
