Brewbound Session Boston is a one day conference event focused on the business of craft beer.

Combining the best in business information and networking, Brewbound Session offers an unmatched strategic learning opportunity for craft brewers and wholesalers.  The event will take place at the Revere Hotel Boston Common on Thursday May 29.

The Brewbound Session provides an excellent opportunity to learn marketing, investment, and distribution strategies, as well as hear case studies of successful brands in a highly collaborative atmosphere.

The upcoming conference aims to address the topics that most directly impact craft brewers as they look to grow their brands.

During the event, a number of beer industry experts will discuss how brewers can harness the avalanche of consumer, distributor and retailer interest in the craft beer category to improve their access to growth capital and deepen their sales base. Panelists and presenters will help brewers weigh the impact of portfolio choices, branding elements like design and packaging decisions on brand-building and shelf appeal, as well as long-term distribution strategies. Marketing, merchandising, and the overall state of the craft market are looked at as opportunities for brewers to improve revenue and profitability, and to build the capital structure that will allow them to weather any storm.

Additionally, Brewbound Session Boston 2014 will mark the return of the Startup Brewery Challenge. New craft beer companies, that are less than two years old, will have the opportunity to compete in a business-pitch contest and sample product to a panel of expert judges.

As always, networking in an environment that balances business innovation with the lighthearted pleasure expected at a craft beer event is a major part of the Brewbound Session. Attendees will have numerous opportunities to engage fellow attendees, speakers and sponsors during structured networking breaks.
