Spanton Media Group has been leading the way in the Australian market with its publications and events dedicated to the bar industry. For more than 20 years we've been hosting the leading trade events including Sydney Bar Week and the annual Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards, the 'Oscars' of the bar industry will celebrate its 20th birthday in 2021 (after a hiatus in 2020).

Spanton Media has been publishing the voice of Australian bartenders, Australian Bartender magazine, a monthly trade magazine, since 1999, with 2021 marking the 22nd year and 250th issue of the country's leading magazine for bartenders.

In 2015 we launched  Indie Spirits Tasting dedicated to the boom in the local and international craft spirit market. Now this event has expanded and in 2020 it will be held in Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Sydney. We also have a dedicated event for whiskies - Whiskey Roadshow, which we plan to relaunch in 2022. 


Our flagship event - Sydney Bar Week - is a five day festival each September with over 4,000 guests attending the 40-plus events, dedicated to the bar business. www.sydneybarweek.com.au
