Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton
The Craft Beverage Expo is a comprehensive trade show tailored specifically to suppliers of craft wine, beer and spirits. Celebrating collaboration, highlighting innovation and showcasing the best and next practices across all segments, this event is designed to help participants compete in a marketplace filled with high volume, low-cost options. The Craft Beverage Education Association (CBEA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping members from the wine, beer, spirits, cider, and mead industries navigate the business of craft and artisanal beverage post-production. We believe that this “horizontal” model of learning — spanning all craft beverage segments — leads to enhanced discussion and superior execution of business plans. In the spirit of CRAFT itself, collaboration yields a better product. We don’t intend to lobby, define, or otherwise politicize. Instead, we want to create an environment that supports CRAFT by helping our members understand the sales, marketing, business development, regulatory, and distribution issues that often hinder a small craft producer. From new craft businesses to established productions, CBEA is your source for education and collaboration.
