Dan said: “I love doing this show, it’s so much fun chatting to amazing bartenders and drinks professionals all over the globe. It’s fascinating to see we’re all in the same boat and battling on. I just want to bring some positivity to the pandemic and this show really does do that. We’ve spoken to some really high profile people in the industry and there are so many more people to speak to.”
