Is this a trade show?
Unlike a typical trade show, this is not a selling show where brands have booths and buyers walk the floor. Instead, this is a business strategy and networking conference, which is complementary to industry trade shows. The BevNET Live Expo is a 2+ hour networking break taking place on the first day of the event, and features 25-30 industry leading suppliers and service providers with tabletop exhibits.
BevNET Live provides an intimate atmosphere exclusively for the founders and executives of emerging and established beverage companies to learn and network. With 500+ attendees, the event provides insight from both the presentations on the stage and the conversations happening in the room. Brands come to BevNET Live to create important connections with investors, advisors, consultants, suppliers and other brand owners.
Are there additional networking opportunities?Networking is a major aspect of BevNET Live, and we provide ample opportunity to work the entire room. There is an after party following day one of the conference, along with extended program breaks, a supplier expo, and extended lunch breaks during both days to facilitate networking efforts. The Sampling Bar is also a great feature to share your product and receive feedback from fellow attendees during the event.
Are there additional learning opportunities?Each BevNET Live conference attracts many early-stage beverage entrepreneurs with little to no background of the industry. The afternoon prior to BevNET Live, we host Beverage School, a nuts-and-bolts, industry 101 type crash course that gives an overview of the first 1-2 years of launching a beverage brand. Beverage School is a free add-on for qualified registered BevNET live attendees.
