“Coming here to the RHI Summit has been good to us to LEARN ABOUT ALL THE POLICIES AND REGULATIONS surrounding getting alcohol beverages safely and effectively into the U.S market”  - Lester Jones, NBWA Chief Economist

 

“I, being in London and being an international guest, it’s nice to get a completely unique perspective because how we do things in the UK is very different to how it’s done here. We can learn a lot from each other, that is something that this conference is succeeding in.”

 - Shain Shapiro, Sound Diplomacy, Founder

“I find RHI conferences to be a great meeting place, they’re organic and they put everyone in a situation where we can really discuss ideas and concepts that are going to make the nightlife safer and more economically viable” - Graham Lancaster, Servall Biometrics, Former Director

“I LOVE COMING TO SOCIABLE CITY SUMMITS because I meet so many people working across the country doing interesting, innovative things in their cities and their venues” - Stefanie Jones, Drug Policy Alliance, Interim Managing Director
