From February 13 to 15, Paris becomes the rum capital of the world!

The Mondial du Rhum will be held for the first time next week at the Palais Brongniart, from February 13 to 15. Conferences, concerts, a gala dinner, job dating… Rumporter, partner of the event, will have a stand where you can discover current and back issues, buy books on rum, taste the Sodade x Rumporter cuvée, and meet members of the editorial team. But let’s let Patrick Loger, the visionary behind this unique event, tell us more about the program!

Patrick, the Mondial du Rhum takes place next week, so first question: how’s it shaping up?

It’s going very well. Above all, it’s a celebration of the first time. We’re seeing a tremendous amount of coverage in the national and international press. What’s more, social networks have taken up the event and are inviting as many people as possible to come and discover the first edition, which will go down in the history of the global rum ecosystem. Paris becomes the rum capital of the world. Over 100 speakers in four areas: public affairs, business, innovation and education. An exhibition featuring a cultural area, an institutional village, a Made in area, a rum producers’ village, an industrial village…

Can you tell us more about the event?

The Mondial is a place for public players and economic decision-makers to meet and exchange ideas, with the aim of facilitating the development of the global rum ecosystem. A summit and an exhibition. It’s 50 buyers, influencers and journalists from all over the world. Extraordinary!
