Given Northern California’s thriving craft community and Silicon Valley’s forward-thinking, results-oriented attitude, there could be no better home for the 2nd annual Craft Beverage Expo than Santa Clara.
After all, CBE was created not just to foster collaboration across all segments of the industry, but also to ensure that attendees and exhibitors are actually profiting from the unprecedented popularly of handcrafted beer, wine, spirits and cider.
And how does it do that?
First, by attracting the industry’s most accomplished experts. Among CBE 2014’s speakers were: Stephen Hindy, Co-Founder, Chairman and President, The Brooklyn Brewery; Ken Grossman, Founder, Sierra Nevada Brewing; Ralph Erenzo, Distiller and Co-Founder, Tuthilltown Spirits; and Leslie P. Berglund, Co-Founder and Chairman, WISE Academy.
Next, it connects attendees with vendors—over 160 at the 2014 event—whose time- and money-saving products and services are tailored to craft- and artisan-scale operations.
By focusing on post-production issues, including marketing, business development and regulation, CBE’s robust education component ensures that participants will leave with real, actionable solutions that they can implement the moment they return home.
And finally, CBE brings together all segments of the industry, which means more opportunities for connecting with like-minded people, exchanging the ideas and sharing the best practices that can help craft beverage producers overcome the pressing issues they face today.
