CDI Experience 2018

Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI), an affiliate of Breakthru Beverage Group, hosted their annual CDI Experience trade show last month. A trade-only tasting for CDI accounts and guests, this year’s CDI Experience rose to new levels. Two levels, to be exact. 

Held at the Foxwoods Resort Casino on September 18th, this year’s CDI Experience was divided into two locations, with 30 wine suppliers from the newly acquired New England Division portfolio exhibiting on the upper level, and 67 wine and spirit tables on the main floor. 

"We continue to get more customers each year at this great event,” said CDI president John Parke. “Our suppliers stepped up even more this year with the quality of their presentations, and each of them focused on a few key items with a clear message, which is vital when you see the large number of offerings here.”

Close to 1,000 registered guests attended the portfolio showcase, which also included a “Gin Is In” cocktail competition featuring local Connecticut mixologists. 

“It takes a tremendous team effort to execute an event of this size,” added Parke. “I couldn't be prouder of the work done by our CDI team."
