They will be joined by a strong, creative lineup of investors, retailers, other interesting brand owners, distributors and strategic thinkers who are on hand to help beverage industry entrepreneurs find their own paths to success.
As always, BevNET Live will feature the New Beverage Showdown, the business pitch competition that has repeatedly put the spotlight on the next great beverage brand, as well as focused breakout sessions, carefully curated discussion panels, and BevNET’s own team, known for facilitating conversation, connection, and networking among guests.
