Why Sponsor NMCC?
¤In 2015, liquor industry leaders came from around the U.S. to teach SOLD OUT seminars. Attendees were comprised of 65% trade and 35 % consumers, including bartenders from the state’s most influential cocktail bars.
¤Emerging markets with strong culinary ties have strong BRAND LOYALTY when companies invest in developing their mixology community. Education is key to this evolution. Aspen, San Antonio and Charleston are a few examples of success in smaller market culinary and cocktail festivals.
¤Hospitality is one of New Mexico’s main industries. NMCC ELEVATES the cocktail community, thereby creating new business opportunities for local and international liquor companies, local bars, restaurants and culinary tourism.
¤Santa Fe is already a recognized foodie destination with a slew JAMES BEARD AWARD winning chefs, 3 cooking schools, 400+ hundred restaurants, 58 hotels (many with bars) and 40+ stand-alone bars.
¤Santa Fe consistently lands on NATIONAL TOP TEN guides for dining, tourism and culture in publications such as Conde Nast, National Geographic, USA Today, Travel & Leisure, AARP, Trivago, Fodor’s, and more. The world comes to eat, drink and relax with us.
¤Other cultural events include our world famous Opera, the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival, Spanish Market, Indian Market, Fiestas, Wine & Chile, and Albuquerque’s renowned Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. New Mexico Cocktails & Culture will soon become one of the state’s MUST DO festivals around which tourists schedule their trips.
¤We GIVE BACK. In 2015, NMCC’s silent auction raised $1500 for Helen David Relief Fund, helping bartenders with breast cancer.
