Amazon disrupted traditional retail — but while it’s shaking up store formats, it’s also hoping to help beverage brands grow their sales. Kyle Walker, Amazon’s Head of New Business Strategy, joins the BevNET Live Summer 2019 speaker lineup to break down how the company plans to accomplish that goal.
With thousands of products sold on Amazon, brands can easily be lost in the mix. Walker will explore the ways that Exclusive, a portal featuring innovation products from emerging brands, and Launchpad, a program providing startup education and support, will set brands up for success and help accelerate their growth.
Walker, who has experience with both brick-and-mortar and online merchants, will also explain the best practices for brands that are hoping to increase their presence and performance with Amazon. Attendees will walk away with actionable takeaways they can apply to their Amazon strategy and get their products into more carts.
At BevNET Live the program will go beyond e-commerce, featuring insights into technology, millennials, lessons learned and future trends. Presenting these are industry all-stars from Oatly, Bodyarmor, LifeAid, Iris Nova, Koia, and more. And off-stage attendees will have plenty of time for networking and sampling through the Beverage School startup session on June 11, New Beverage Showdown pitch competition, and sampling bars during breaks.
