After attracting 300 leading international sommeliers and wine professionals from over 20 countries for the Somm360 World Congress in 2018, the next chapter will be held from September 27 to October 1, 2020 in Montreal, Canada. 

Once again top wine professionals are invited to come together to taste, learn, and grow from 20 different topics on the sommelier world to improve their knowledge. In addition, the Somm360 Development Program (ex-Bootcamp) will offer an intensive 5-day competition training program for a select group of up to 40 Sommeliers including 1:1 mentoring with top industry peers, as well as service, blind tasting, and stress management coaching. 

This program was offered to 22 Sommeliers from 20 countries in November 2018 for the first time. Among the participants were Marc Almert, the ASI Best Sommelier of the World 2019, and Raimonds Tomsons, the 3rd ASI Best Sommelier of the World 2019.
