Key Retail Insights on Display at May 29 Brewbound Session

With one new brewery opening each day in the U.S., building a successful craft beer company is no longer just about securing tap handles or earning placement at the local bottle shop.

In a competitive environment, advanced retail planning is essential to scaling production, growing sales and getting the attention of key decision makers at large regional and national chains.

That’s why Brewbound is excited to announce that Tom Fox, a nationally recognized leader in category management and partner at CM Profit Group, will present key strategies for earning chain authorizations at the May 29 Brewbound Session in Boston.

In describing the ways that brewers can increase their sales and create excitement for their products in broader retail channels, Fox will offer advice and methods for emerging beer brands to improve their position in store sets and win the faith of large retailers as they grow.

As part of his presentation, Fox will also provide attendees insight into important channels for craft beer sales and discuss various style, category and consumer trends.
