What is considered the biggest event in the drinks sector in the Algarve dedicated to the trade market, will take place in the emblematic space of the city of Silves, the Fábrica do Inglês, completely remodelled to host the first major event of 2020. The one that is already considered the biggest beverage event in Portugal is back for another edition that will bring together in the city of Silves wine producers, spirits, mixologists, brand ambassadors, brand builders and bartenders from major national and international brands. The event aims to present the latest global trends in the beverage sector. During the two days of the event, visitors will be able to attend varied workshops, wine tasting, shows with animation by guest DJs, live music and finger food for all tastes. For Rita Soares, responsible for the event “this year we want to give the opportunity to challenge the brands that will be present at the 8th edition of the Algarve Trade Experience. Like the adventurous and creative spirit of the Portuguese during the time of discoveries, we want this year's edition to challenge the present brands to present the most creative and inspiring trends and news, in this which is the largest and most creative beverage event dedicated to the trade in our country".

Promoting Silves and the Algarve region in 2 days of intense cultural and gastronomic activity is the main objective of the Algarve Trade Experience.

In addition to the importance that the event assumes in the beverage industry at national level, the 8th edition of the Algarve Trade Experience also represents an opportunity to present local producers, artisanal ways of working with raw materials and all the solutions that can complement the offer from hospitality to a multitude of tourists visiting the region of Silves and the Algarve throughout the year.

This year's choice for the Algarve Trade Experience 2020 fell on the city of Silves at the emblematic Fábrica do Inglês, which was not made at random. As stated by Rita Soares “our choice fell on the city of Silves, which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the Algarve. Visiting Silves means facing different periods in the history of mankind and, naturally, returning to the Age of Discoveries is an important milestone. We want to take advantage of the realization of this great event to return, and at the same time enhance, the incredible cultural, historical and architectural heritage of Fábrica do Inglês and this city, as, incidentally, also happened last year with the recovery of the Old Beer Factory, in Faro. We are committed to the development of our region and this event has been a lever to contribute to this impulse”.

After the success and adhesion registered in the last edition, the Algarve Trade Experience 2020 opens, for the second consecutive year, the doors to the general public. On 6 and 7 March, between 5pm and 8pm, the event will be open to all those who want to come and taste some of the best wines and cocktails made by leading professionals today.
