Yes Yes Yes!! We need a Whisky Live. LA whisky lovers are drastically underserved.

Pretty please can we have one?

Why not get together and organise your own whisky festival rather than wait for someone else to do it.

I'm not sure we could get hundreds of purveyors to come to "Ganga & Sku's Whisky Event", held in my backyard. :D

No, I wasn't talking about your back yard.
Munich hosts an independent festival, so does Victoria and many other places.

Find a venue, contact your local importers / dealers and also the distilleries themselves to see how many would be interested in committing to the event.
You will need a suitable location and then lots of advertising, with the event being planned about a year in advance.

As for the business plan:
Work out how much you need to charge for each stand, plus entry fees against the cost of advertising and the event itself.

I am sure people like Lawrence would be able to offer further sensible advice.

Ask, and you shall receive!

http://www.whiskylive.com/shows.php

From the home page, it shows LA in October, 2008. However, there are no details, and clicking on the LA link just shows a reference to the previous show in Barcelona.

Oh well, I'm sure there will be more details soon.

I'll go down there for that one...woohoo.

Uh, uh, how about a Leikanger Live Whisky Fest??? I could help organize and plan, and guarantee most of the 2000 person population would be there!! Plus many others in the surrounding area. Heck, do it in summer and get a mess of tourists to visit too!!

Ok...I better start saving my money because it seems LA has some crazy good SM prices in those stores.

It should be a good time.

I see that WhiskyFest in SF is scheduled for Friday, October 10. Whisky Live is scheduled for Los Angeles, also in October although the exact date has not yet been set.

Can anyone tell me what the differences are between these two events?

I don't know anything about Whisky Live, but WhiskyFest is only held three times a year in New York, Chicago and San Francisco. It is run by Malt Advocate Magazine whereas Whisky Life looks like it is run by Whisky Magazine.

The first San Francisco Whisky Fest was last year and I had a total blast. FWIW

It looks like they couldn't squeeze it in...I wonder if Matt will be able to give us some info on LA.

You'd think that they would say on the site that the LA show was cancelled, but perhaps the date didn't work, and they are trying to find another date before changing the guesstimated date on the site.

I'm sure they'll let us know.

I'm not exactly sure, but a problem with the venue being booked :?
It hasn't been forgotten and will be coming to LA, but probably next year now.

:oops:

Not yet, but I believe there is a man working on it and other shows in the US. Will see if I can get any info from anyone...
