Actionable Insights for Food & Beverage Businesses
This year’s first Supercharge online conference will delve into one of the most important relationships inside any food or beverage company: the intersection of Sales and Operations. The two-day event will take place on March 16 and 17, with content presentations on March 16, and networking, breakouts, and other small group discussions on March 17.
Food and beverage brands devote massive amounts of time, energy, and money to hiring and developing sales strategies and unique supply chains -- but if those two departments can’t work together, they can completely ground you right when you’re ready to take off.
Supercharge: Sales & Operations will help entrepreneurial food and beverage companies learn the common language and areas where these disciplines intersect, outlining strategies where teams can build for success rather than undermine process.
Registration is included for BevNET & NOSH subscribers. For non-subscribers, you can purchase a subscription for $49 per month or an event-only ticket for $275.
