What’s the best event you’ve ever been to? What made it special? What do you remember most vividly about the experience?
One of my favorites is Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, an event as dynamic as the city it was born in. Today we chat with Eileen Wayner, the CEO of the foundation to talk about what it takes to create an event that is as educational as it is entertaining for the last 20 years.
