"You can't build a brand properly without bringing it to life for consumers. You can't change people's minds with advertising alone. You need to make brands real and relevant. Working closely with the consumer and experiential experts at Drink Inc, we built a juggernaut brand and changed the way people drink by bringing NÜTRL Vodka Soda right to the consumer. I strongly recommend the team at Drink Inc for any brands looking to build and grow through the power of real human connection. They know what they are doing.”
Paul Meehan- Founder & CEO Goodridge & Williams Distillery
“We have worked with Drink Inc. for almost 3 decades. In that time we have made magic, forged friendships and had a lot of fun along the way. We’ve worked through challenges together, we’ve done some crazy troubleshooting, and it hasn’t always been a perfect process, but through perseverance, patience and understanding we have always come out on the other side with great success. That's the main reason I am sure we’re still partners on many events. Beyond the fact that Drink Inc. has been loyal to us for so long, there is a true understanding of how important relationships are in this business and this should resonate with anyone who is considering working with them. Here is to many more years and successful events together!”
Michael Kerwin - General Manager / Production Manager at Frontier Sound & Light
“Big Rock has worked with Drink Inc. on a number of events and festivals, most notably our sold-out Barn Burner concert at the Opera House in October of 2018. They are a company that makes every decision based on what will provide the best experience for their partners and for their event attendees. Drink Inc. is highly professional, knowledgeable, hardworking and dedicated to the success of every project. Great group to work with and I would recommend them to any company interested in creating a unique brand experience that will leave a lasting impression with their customers.”

“If you have ever been to Toronto Pride you know the massive scale of this significant Toronto event. I have worked really hard finding suppliers that could take a chunk off my plate and make a success out of their piece, so that I could focus on the bigger picture. For over a decade Drink Inc. was a shining example of this goal. Not only are the stages and beverage gardens a huge undertaking, but they are a huge source of Pride's income, thus essential to Pride's very survival. Drink Inc.’s turn key service was second to none. They provided bar and product management, while working with our suppliers like security, the AGCO and other onsite partners. We trusted them implicitly and had them work directly with our beverage garden sponsors leading up to and during the event, allowing me to focus on the overall operations for the rest of the celebrations. Year after year, they provided us with 100+ fantastic staff who facilitated our beverage gardens like pros. This alone was enough reason to continue working with them for over 10 years."
Ben Freeman - Director of Operations/ Director of Development: Pride Toronto

"We had an excellent experience working with Drink Inc. to plan a 650-person reception at Underpass Park. They alleviated all stress and made the planning process fun, and brought creativity and planning expertise to our first outdoor function. The team knew all of the best food and beverage vendors in the city, creating a truly local experience for all attending, and they were thoughtful about the layout and logistical considerations on site.”

"We have worked with Drink Inc. for approximately 25 years. Think about that! Twenty-five years! Varsity Tents has their own Event Management arm of the company, so we know what it takes in order for onsite operations to run smoothly. Drink Inc. has this IN SPADES! They get what it takes to work with a supplier in order to make an event run seamlessly. It has been a pleasure working with a team, for so many years, who understands what it means to be partners in success.”
