Tequila and Mezcal Fest Benelux Launches in Belgium
Tequila and Mezcal Fest have just held a press launch to formally announce Tequila and Mezcal Fest Benelux. The launch was held at the Mexican Embassy in Brussels, and was hosted by Ambassador Eloy Cantu Segovia and Europe’s Tequila Regulatory Council representative, Fernando Cano.
The first Tequila and Mezcal Fest Benelux is being held at Eskimo Fabriek in Gent, Belgium. The festival is looking to draw attendees from the entire Benelux region (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg). The aim is to introduce fine agave spirits to the region, allowing brands to introduce themselves to both the industry and consumers directly.
You can find Tequila and Mezcal Fest Benelux online at www.tequilamezcalfest.be/english/ and on facebook at Tequila and Mezcal Fest Belgium 2017. The festival will be held on the 14th and 15th of October, a week after the London event.
