About the Brewbound Session

Focused exclusively on the business side of craft brewing, Brewbound Session events offer an unmatched strategic learning opportunity for craft brewers and wholesalers by combining the best in business information and networking. The one-day program features a hand-selected roster of industry experts and leaders who, through presentations and panel discussions, will touch on topics including investment, marketing, distributions strategies and more.

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.
