Building for the Future

Thought-Provoking Content

As we continue to build out our agenda and content, we will update the agenda frequently over the next few months. Some of the topics you can anticipate being covered and discussed throughout the conference include: the changing marketplace (direct-to-consumer shipping, ready-to-drink cocktails, cocktails to-go, e-commerce), diversity, sustainability, post COVID response/support, cannabis, responsibility, trends, and innovation. The below agenda is tentative as it is being developed and is subject to change.

Exhilarating Trade Show

In addition to great content, new to the conference this year, we will offer an intimate trade show. Exhibitors from all sectors of our industry are welcome, with a focus on diverse supply chain companies, sustainability, and innovation as we build for the future. The trade show will also highlight the hosting state with our “Taste of Texas” pavilion while offering stimulating content on the trade show stage and an innovation pitch competition.
