Market Trends I: Alcoholic Beverages

The alcoholic beverage segment has recently gone through a transformation with the explosion of hard seltzer. A multitude of changes have occurred in beverages and companies as covid-19 has dramatically impacted the business creating a whole new dynamic for the industry. With an in-depth review of growth rates, projections, consumer patterns, category challenges and much more, you will get a detailed look at the developments that are shaping today’s alcoholic beverage marketplace with a view to the future. We will also explore which category — beer, wine or spirits — is winning and why. Brian Sudano, Managing Partner, Beverage Marketing Corporation

Market Trends II: Non-Alcoholic Beverages

The market for refreshment beverages has proven resilient in the face of a pandemic. But not all categories are created equal: Learn which categories have thrived and which have struggled in this challenging environment. We’ll dig into the data and provide details on category performance and discuss the trends driving that performance. We’ll touch on traditional categories as well as emerging ones. Gain valuable insight with an overview of current market trends and learn what the future may hold. Gary Hemphill, Managing Director & COO BMC Research, Beverage Marketing Corporation

Dear Beverage Forum Community:

Every year we look forward to connecting with our Beverage community to collectively share our vision for the future we are building together.

But after careful consideration of the ongoing health and safety implications around COVID-19 we feel it is our responsibility to help limit social contact and group gatherings. For that reason, we have made the difficult decision to cancel The Beverage Forum scheduled for October 15-16, 2020.

This was a tough decision and we are disappointed we won’t be able to hold the event for the first time in 25 years but it was a necessary one for the safety and wellbeing of all our event participants.

We value the support and understanding during these truly extraordinary times.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
SAVE DATE: May 11-12, 2021 in Chicago
Best regards,
The Beverage Forum Team

In April 2016 Jim published a book, Quench Your Own Thirst: Business Lessons Learned Over a Beer or Two [Flatiron Books] which became an instant national bestseller. He tells stories about building The Boston Beer Company and shares valuable insights he’s picked up along the way.

Anthony von Mandl, Founder & CEO, The Mark Anthony Group of Companies

Intensity, infectious passion and an unwavering commitment to his vision led Anthony von Mandl to organically build The Mark Anthony Group, a +$1 billion international beverage corporation from the ground up, without outside financing or shareholders, starting out at the age of 22. Anthony has launched numerous new beverage categories including Mike’s Hard Lemonade and White Claw Hard Seltzer.

In Canada, Anthony created the world's first flavored ciders in the early 1980s, while also launching and building Corona into the country'’s No. 1 import beer. He has pioneered high-end wine production in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, where his Mission Hill Family Estate won 'Best Pinot Noir in the World' at the prestigious Decanter Wine Awards in London and his wineries have won 'Canadian Winery of the Year' six times.

His passion for continuous innovation is reflected in his new Martin's Lane Winery, the most radical 6-level, gravity fed Pinot Noir winery in the world.

We have been monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19/Coronavirus, which, as you know, is changing rapidly. The health and safety of everyone at our Beverage Forum event is important to us and we have decided that this event will be postponed and take place October 15-16, 2020 in Chicago.

Our top priority is the health and safety of all participants at these events including attendees, sponsors, vendors and staff. Due to the magnitude of the unanticipated public health and safety issues, in addition to increased travel restrictions, we have determined that postponement at this time is the best, most productive approach for all.

We will continue to work very closely with the city of Chicago and local, state and federal public health authorities to maintain constant communication on this front.
