The Tales of the Cocktail Foundation will be throwing the next Tales of the Cocktail conference in the most appropriate place possible: New Orleans.

The 22nd edition of the conference will take place July 21-26 at the Ritz-Carlton in the historic French Quarter. The theme for this year will be "Inspire," a call for embracing diversity and ingenuity in the world of cocktails. The past two decades of the conference have been a place for professionals in the beverage industry to meet and discuss anything and everything related to cocktails.

The conference will include tastings, presentations, networking, an awards ceremony, and so much more. The event will be a six-day long educational opportunity for anyone and everyone in the field to innovate and connect. Tickets will go on sale on May 13 during World Cocktail Day.

The Tales of the Cocktail Foundation is proud to also be offering grant opportunities for both eligible individuals and organizations. Proposals for the grant should be submitted by February 16 and should outline potential programs designed to increase safety, support, healthcare, mental health, security, and workplace equity for bartenders. After the applications have been reviewed, some will be invited to interview and then finally present their fully fledged proposal at the conference in July, then recipients of the grant will be determined in fall 2024.
