Closing General Session

Join us for the Closing General Session, moderated by Alan Kropf.

Relationships – The Core Element of Craft

Our lives revolve around relationships.  Family, friends, neighbors, community, competitors, suppliers, vendors, customers.  Relationship building is a core element of your business; it is one of the elements that sets you apart, builds your brand, and creates a level of trust and loyalty. Whether internal or external, how you nurture these relationships will influence how your businesses and products are perceived.  Join our closing panel of industry icons who have all prospered through successfully building strong and lasting relationships across the craft beverage community and beyond.
