World Flair Association
The World Flair Association is a global network brought together by four giant names in the World of Flair, who felt there was a need in promoting & assisting different countries in their events by sharing their combined experiences gained by being heavily involved within the Flair and the service industry in general.
On the show we talk about the gradings levels for flair bartenders offered by the association as well as a little about their involvement with helping to promote competition and consistency in judging.
