A guide to 2024 Miami Rum Congress after-show events

If you’re going to be at the Miami Rum Congress this week(end), here’s a quick guide to events happening outside of the main show. These are events that are sponsored by brands or bars and aren’t part of the official show agenda. Some require reservations or the purchase of a ticket, I’ve provided links to registration sites.

Here’s a map with all of the locations plotted to help orient you. Keep in mind that the four locations on the left of the map (Esotico is hiding behind the Kaona pin) are four or more miles from the Miami Beach Convention Center. Check to see if there are shuttles, otherwise there’s always Uber and Lyft. The Venetian Bridge supposedly has a walking path on it as well.

Here’s the MRC official event schedule as well. There’s also a PDF version with talk schedules.
