The First Annual Tequila Expo Launch Party

The First annual Vancouver International Tequila Expo (VITE) will take place in May at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Sponsored by Las Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, Mexico Tourism Board, ProMexico, and the Consul General of Mexico in Vancouver, partial proceeds of the event will support the British Columbia Hospitality Foundation (BCHF). VITE hosted a launch party at Edge Social Grille & Lounge to introduce the event as well as some of the brands they will be hosting. VITE will have an array of brands including well-known one's like Don Julio & Cab Wabo Tequila and lesser-known newcomers to the market like T1 Tequila Uno & Tavi Tequila and brands not yet imported to British Columbia. Because Tequila is a spirit with a protected Denomination of Origin (D.O.) the expo will provide a great opportunity to elevate the understanding of this bold, tradition-laden, world-class spirit.
