    Why do I need a ticket and how much does it cost?

    In the past 8 years Imbibe Live has grown from strength to strength – and the main reason for this is that we listen. We listen to our visitors, our exhibitors, our partners and our sponsors to know how best bring Imbibe to life for two days in July.

    As everyone knows we are limited by space and we want to make sure that we provide the best experience for everyone involved at Imbibe Live so we are introducing a small £10 entry fee for 2018 to ensure that the audience, the technology and the food are of the same high quality as the incredible products, seminars and competitions that our industry showcases over the two days.

    We want our visitors to have the best possible experience, and we want our buyers and sellers to be better connected. We’ve listened to feedback and want to enhance the experience at Imbibe Live even further. We’re therefore taking over the balcony at Olympia, bringing in great street food and we’ve made our awesome ‘Tinder’ app bigger and better so that swiping and making meetings at Imbibe Live will be easier than ever. We’ve also improved the meeting areas and massively upped our game with food so we hope you think it’s worth the tenner. We will also be giving back to our beloved industry with a charity donation to ensure we all stay happy and healthy.

    Will my ticket be valid for both days?

    Yes, the £10 ticket fee is valid for both show days.

    Can I buy a ticket for just one of the days?

    No, we do not offer a one day ticket. You do not have to attend both days, but we encourage all our visitors to attend on both so that you don’t miss out on any of our brilliant seminars and masterclasses.

    Can I buy a ticket on the day?

    Yes you can pay the entrance fee at Imbibe Live, however we strongly suggest doing this online beforehand to save yourself time queuing.

    Will you refund tickets?

    Tickets to Imbibe Live are non-refundable so make sure it’s booked in your diary in advance.
