Event Details



We can’t ignore the elephant in the room but the WSTA will be looking at more than just Brexit at this year’s WSTA Annual Conference, which will return to the Royal Institution of Great Britain on Tuesday 18 September 2018.

The conference in 2017 was our most successful ever, winning BEST ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (under 224 attendees) at the European Association Awards.

And even better, the team at JF Hillebrand will be returning as Headline sponsor for a further three years! 

This year, we will bring you a packed agenda, split into two parts:


Business as un-usual?

-        Industry update

-        Interview-style session dealing with business and Brexit;


The evolution of the 'The Buyer'

-        Panel session looking at topics such as digital vs off line marketing, experiential marketing, B2B vs B2C, brand engagement.

-        The Showcase, an interactive tasting experience, with products and services exhibited from WSTA members.


We’re hoping to bring you something a little extra special at this year’s Showcase, and we’ll let you in on our plans soon! If you’d like to take part in the Showcase, please drop Jessica ( an email. We’d love to hear from you.
