SEMINAR APPLICATION GUIDELINES
Tales of the Cocktail is the world’s premier global cocktail event. It is thus a privilege to be onstage and should be treated as such from the point of idea submission to walking onstage.
If you have not read the Tales of the Cocktail Seminar and Event FAQ, we strongly recommend you do so to understand what a Tales of the Cocktail seminar is and what is being considered in the review of your proposal.
Submission review criteria are also included here.
The deadline to submit your seminar(s) is November 15, 2012 at midnight PST.
If you have an idea which is a Tasting Room or discussion of a specific product, a Spirited Dinner or other event, please submit these concepts here.
The application is your first impression to the seminar selection committee. Be mindful that they may not all know you or your work.
Leave time to submit on time as there are no extra points for submitting first, take as much time as you can to conceptualize your seminar. Everything counts, yes, even spelling! There are however, no “wrong” answers or specific “types” we are looking for. Honest, natural answers will go much further than ones fabricated or skewed to what you think the seminar committee is looking for.
Set aside an uninterrupted hour to review the application. You do not want to do this on the fly!
We encourage you to go through the application prior to completing it to see what questions are asked and how your responses to certain questions may trigger others. As long as you do not click the final ‘submit’ button, your submission is not sent to us.
Prepare and save your answers in an offline document that you retain a copy of. This way you may simply copy and paste your answers into the form when ready and retain a copy in case of broken connections, etc.
