Mediterranean Bar Show 2023

April 2-3-4, 2023


Mediterranean Bar Show (#MedBS), the biggest Multi-Experiential Festival of the year, took place for one more time at Cyprus Expo in Nicosia.


Once more we created unforgettable experiences and looking forward to #MedBS 2024!


This festival expands more and more and step by step is becoming an institution, since Cyprus is also gradually becoming a point of reference in the Mediterranean and the Middle East in the hospitality industry.


On April 2, 3 and 4, more than 2,800 visitors - hospitality industry professionals and enthusiasts/consumers - from Cyprus, Greece, Spain, Russia and Dubai attended this celebration. 


Each visitor, by purchasing a ticket, had access to a one-time journey of tasting, networking, education and fun, which encouraged the exchange of ideas, but also the discovery of products and services.


The experience was once again unique:

  • 51 modern, beautifully designed exhibition stands from every brand of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages
  • 140+  products for sampling and dozens of cocktails to taste
  • 22 world-class bartenders and entrepreneurs acting in 14 unique seminars/masterclasses and tastings for the public
  • booths and vans with delicious food & stands with specialty coffee
  • exciting music selections by guest DJ's & a live band.


At the same time, from Saturday April 1st until Tuesday (03/04), the whole city of Nicosia experienced even more intensely the pulse of the Festival, with 13 unique events and guest shifts taking place in the city’s cocktail bars, by popular and creative bartenders from all over the world.

The official end of #MedBS marked its Kick-Ass Closing Party on Tuesday, April 4, where guests had the opportunity to try signature cocktails and travel deliciously across the planet! Seventeen pop-up bars served the public special cocktails, while on the decks 4 famous DJ's of the island made the crowd dance non-stop with their music selections.


This multi-experiential festival has a vision to contribute to the development, information and discovery of new ways and media, which will further improve the mindset of catering businesses, but also of consumers, in the Europe-Middle East region, making Cyprus a connection hub between them.


After this year's end of the Festival, and having the ultimate, sweet and traveling aftertaste, with a dose of nostalgia, we renew our appointment for 2024! Stay tuned!
