Beviale Moscow 2020: March 24 - 26, Moscow
Increasing beverage consumption in Eastern Europe is putting increasing demands on the supply industry. Consequently, there’s significant growth in small and medium-sized beverage manufacturers who are commanding a growing market share, including a significant increase in craft beer breweries. There’s also increased imports of processing and packaging machines from abroad.
This year, Beviale Moscow boasted 164 exhibitors and welcomed 6,239 trade visitors from 47 countries. The trade fair returns in 2020, covering the entire process chain from manufacturing to marketing.
