Registration is now open for the inaugural Beverage Alcohol Retailers Conference (BARC).
Beverage Dynamics is hosting this event on June 12-14, 2017, in Minneapolis, MN, to bring together retailers while offering in-person education and networking opportunities. Attending retailers can gain information about new products, in-store innovations and best practices, while also sharing information with fellow business owners to improve operations.
“The Beverage Dynamics readership of 50,000 beverage retailers urged us to create this event to help improve their businesses and discuss best practices with industry leaders,” says Beverage Dynamics editor Jeremy Nedelka. BRC will truly be one of the first events of its kind.
BARC has an exclusive partnership with the Wine & Spirits Education Trust and American Wine School, to offer Level 2 Wine and Spirits certification to attendees. Candidates for the certification will register for an online course for a separate fee, which includes a prep session and exam given in-person at the conference.
Distributors and suppliers have opportunity to become a BRC sponsor, which will give them exclusive access to the event. Sponsors will support education for large and small retailers, says Nedelka, helping them increase the profitability of crowded shelf space. Sponsors also have opportunity to “improve communication with retailers through networking events, while also gaining important consumer and trade insights from data analysts.”
Registration and sponsorship information is available at BevRetailersConference.com. Early-bird registration rates are available until Feb. 9. Seating is limited.
