BeverageDaily will be hosting a live, online event in March titled ‘Beer and beyond’ – zooming in on this exciting sector.

The virtual conference, which will feature two webinars and a roundtable discussion, will take place on March 8, 2016. We are looking for panelists to join our roundtable debate, which looks at the challenges and opportunities for the industry.

Who are we looking for?

Global headline beer growth may not be anything spectacular: but break this down into market segments and the opportunities can become very attractive. Yet there are plenty of challenges. 

  • What can we expect as mergers and acquisitions reshape the market?
  • Should brewers be concerned about society’s drive towards healthy living? How does the next generation of beer drinkers differ to their parents?
  • Just how long will craft beer keep booming for? 
  • Innovations aren’t just about new flavors – how big is the opportunity for beers that are gluten-free or brews that pack a protein punch?  

Panelists will know the beer market and will be able to share their knowledge and experience. Three panelists will join our chair, ready to face questions from the online audience. It's a chance to debate with fellow professionals and showcase your expertise.

There won't be much preparation, and aside from your industry knowledge the only requirements are availability on March 8 and a good phone and internet connection.
