Thought-Provoking Content

This year’s conference kicks off with Keynote speaker, Tricia Clarke-Stone. Tricia is an entrepreneur, multi-award-winning marketer and brand builder, revenue-producing innovator and author who has spent the last two decades launching and leading businesses at the intersection of marketing, tech, media, and entertainment.

Additional sessions will feature hot topics such as sustainability in an age of digital acceleration, beverage convergence in the alcohol sector, the evolving spirits marketplace, industry economics and emerging consumer trends, and best practices in diversity, equity and inclusion, data privacy, and NFT’s.

The popular “Innovation Showcase” is back at this year’s conference and on the main stage.  The Shark-Tank style competition gives entrepreneurial individuals and companies a platform to showcase their unique inventions – from packaging to spirits products — before a panel of judges.
