Featuring one of the world’s best bartenders, Mr. Cedric Mendoza of Grain Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney.

I’m definitely excited and feel like this is a homecoming of some sort even if I’m far away right now. Overall, I’m happy to be part of this year’s online activity.”

MAFBEX WIRED is a preview on what is about to happen for the rest of 2020 for WSI. As the community looks forward to meeting and engaging with the entire food and beverage industry next year, it is WSI’s ultimate goal to merge two spaces, physical and digital, to give everyone the best support and exposure they can possibly offer. “We are always at the forefront of innovation and this is the ideal time for us to penetrate the virtual space. Our WIRED series will still keep the core of our physical events but we understand that this is now a game of adaptability and accessibility. What we want to offer is a perfect mix of varied platforms for growth opportunities for the trade industry moving forward. “Says Jill Ang, Managing Director of WSI.
