13th Annual Beer Summit - 2016 --------------------
For the first time ever we are taking the Beer Summit down south to New Orleans. The 2016 Summit will take place at The Roosevelt Hotel (a Waldorf Astoria property) located just a few blocks from the French Quarter.
The general session starts Monday afternoon, January 25, followed by a welcome reception. Then we have an all day session on Tuesday, January 26 with departures on Wednesday morning, January 27.
WHO AND WHY: The Beer Industry Summit is regularly attended by top executives in the beer industry. It provides thought-provoking content aimed at improving not only your business, but also the industry at large. Ample networking opportunities with the "who's who" of the beer business guarantees you won't leave without making many new industry connections.
As one beer distributor executive recently told us, "The Summit has become the most important industry conference of the year."
