SOMM360, Los Angeles, US

Dates TBC

Following the inaugural Somm360 three-day summit in Montreal last year, Vincent Lafortune, the show’s founder, has said that this year he will be taking the format around the world, starting in Los Angeles. Aimed at sommeliers and those working in the hospitality industry, these one-day events will essentially be a distilled version of the larger Montreal congress, and will run from 9am to 5pm in a series of major cities. Los Angeles is already confirmed, with plans for events in London, New York and Shanghai. Meanwhile, Lafortune said that he couldn’t confirm the timing or the location of next year’s Somm360 congress, because he wanted to wait and hear the feedback from the 2018 event first.

The inaugural Somm360 was held from 24-27 November in Montreal, and was conceived to help those in the hospitality sector become better sommeliers as well as support them in their attempt o obtain the Master Sommelier, Master of Wine or Wine and Spirits Education Trust certifications.
