Two Events You Should Already Mark In Your Calendar For 2018

November 07, 2017


We all know how overwhelming the Fall season can be. Lots of projects to wrap up for the year, friends & family to see in case they skip town for the holidays and the rain that just makes you want to stay home. That’s why I really wanted to talk about these events that you might have missed recently and how to make sure to not miss out next year!

East Coast Coffee Madness

Whether you own a coffee shop or are simply obsessed with coffee like me, this event is pure paradise. Some of the best east coast producers come for one day and share their passion with you.

It’s great to do a lot of sampling but also to learn about the state of the coffee business from bean to cup with a full day of conferences included in your ticket.

This year, the third edition was held at SAT on October 22nd. To not miss out on the fourth edition in 2018, follow ECCM on one of their social accounts below:

La Grande Dégustation de Montréal

It’s not the first time you’ve seen me write about this event but I love it so much every year that it’s important for me to spread the word out!

#LGDMTL gives you the chance to meet hundreds of wine producers but also plenty of private importers. It’s interesting to learn about what wines are available at the SAQ every year and see the evolution behind it. What’s also very cool is that you can purchase any wine that is private import only and by the bottle and not the case!

This year’s edition was held on November 2-4 at Place Bonaventure. It’s usually always the first or second weekend of November. To not miss out on the next year, follow LGDMTL on one of their social accounts below:
