The preliminary agenda has been posted for BevNET Live Winter ’14, which takes place on Dec. 8 and 9 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.
While we’ve been busy publicizing our sessions over the past couple of months, you’ll notice that we’ve layered in a whole bunch of cool stuff that we haven’t even had time to brag about, so we’ll just point them out for you now to further gin up your anticipation:
- A series of Innovation Briefs outlining strategic considerations for capitalizing on specific market sectors like the online retail economy and the future of “dry beverage” as a way of brand-building, as well as manufacturing considerations that may help beverage companies build sustainable businesses
- Financial discussions including a panel on impact investing; Piper Jaffray’s Janica Lane evaluating the accessibility of capital and the state of deal-making in the current market and a “behind the scenes” discussion of the investment that Boulder Investment Group made in Suja, featuring Suja CEO Jeff Church and Duane Primozich of Boulder Investment Group
- Talks with key retailers Walgreens and Bristol Farms
- BevNET’s Best of 2014 Awards – Including a Live Discussion with the Winners
More detailed discussion of these and other program highlights will be released in the days to come — as well as the announcement of our New Beverage Showdown judges. For now, though, let’s all look forward to storming the beach together in December.
