rsz_screen_shot_2015-08-03_at_11647_pmThe Intermedia Group is proud to announce Australia’s biggest trade liquor event will be coming to Auckland from 26-28 June 2016 as a partner of Fine Food New Zealand.

Top Shelf is a trade festival dedicated to wine, beer, premium spirits and craft drinks and will combine some of the best local and international brands, fun, education, sampling and a great line-up of guest speakers to bring the world of fine drink to life.

Fine Food New Zealand has a strong foodservice heritage in New Zealand and is the country’s largest hospitality and retail event with over 6,400 attendees in 2014.

The Intermedia Group Managing Director, Dale Spencer says “Fine Food New Zealand provides us with an incredibly successful vehicle to bring Top Shelf to life. With our Hospitality Business and FMCG Business magazines already leading the market in their sectors, it seems an obvious step to partner with North Port Events and support the Kiwi liquor industry with Top Shelf!”

With a massive 400 square metres within Fine Food New Zealand, Top Shelf offers over 25 stands dedicated to the local liquor sector to present their products to the foodservice and hospitality trade.

Spencer continues “We’ll also have a seated presentation area which will include Masterclasses, product launches and ‘Fight Club’, Top Shelf’s very own brand of mixology challenge. We hope to have a lot of fun with this and look forward to the local liquor guys getting in behind it!”

With over 6,400 attendees guaranteed, liquor marketers are being offered a unique opportunity with Top Shelf to talk to the whole Kiwi industry in one place
