The team behind Craft Beverage Expo, a first-of-its-kind trade show and conference, geared to the independent producers of craft beer, wine and spirits, issued a call for speakers for its inaugural event. Show organizers will tap industry professionals for their expertise and insight into relevant, timely issues in the multi-billion dollar burgeoning craft beverage industry. The event will be held May 6-8, 2014 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif.
Experienced craft beverage-related practitioners who can provide and speak to presentation topics with a well-defined focus and demonstration of “take home” value for conference attendees are encouraged to submit proposals. Sessions will be determined based on submissions received, but subjects should be related to the post-production side of the craft beverage industry and be thought provoking, interactive and collaborative. Those interested can apply on the official Craft Beverage Expo website at www.craftbeverageexpo.com/call-for-presentations. The deadline for proposals is August 26.
“The Craft Beverage Expo provides a unique, targeted and important professional opportunity for those selected to participate as speakers,” said Kellie Shevlin, Executive Director of the Craft Beverage Expo. “No other trade show or conference brings together all three segments of the craft beverage industry in one place or offers presenters unmatched exposure to the growing craft beverage market and all of its producers.”
Unlike other events, the new Craft Beverage Expo will offer craft beverage producers across all market segments, real solutions tailored to the size and scope of their individual operations, specifically as it relates to business, sales and marketing. A greater emphasis will be placed on helping each attendee find sustainable competitive advantages in areas other than cost and volume.
The three-day event will showcase best practices, new business models and provide the latest information on new government regulations impacting the industry. The conference will include a variety of session topics specifically focused on post-production, ranging from general management to brand identity, distribution to industry trends. The Craft Beverage Expo will also provide exhibitors unlimited opportunities to provide new ideas, products and avenues for craft beverage producers to stay competitive and gain access to new markets.
