Mixology Experience in Milan, from May 8th to 10th 2022: a meeting and sharing place for the International bar industry; an exceptional opportunity for businesses, brand and conscious consumers. A three-days of high mixology and special guests.

Mixology Experience is the first and main mixology event in 2022; a single exhibition combining the eight Bartender.it themed formats which completely transformed the world of Italian bartendering over the past 13 years. Twelve areas presenting the best of Italian bar industry: the highest-ranking beverage importers, distributors and manufacturers.

This is why we specially chose this stage to present our innovative Gran Teatro della Miscelazione, and celebrate the birth of Prohibito and the new era of Italian mixology, with the collaboration of many friends such as Bindi, Fantasia nel dessert, and Samantha Migani, owner and resident Bartender of Tiki bar Hawiki Paradise in Igea Marina, with their exclusive Cocktail & Dessert food proposal.

The exhibition offers many experiences, with a constant attention to new mixing trends that stimulate and incentive the growth of Italian bartendering. Thanks to the participation of some of the most famous Italian cocktail bars, the shows guides the guests through a real creative jungle, a place without labels: here, different personalities and talents recognise each other in the strength of ideas; here, many forms of creativity are applied to mixology and continuous experimentation. A jungle of stimuli around us, an endless curiosity inside us.
