With sales of domestically produced cider have more than tripled from 2007, finding the right distribution strategy and marketing mix is critical to stay ahead of your competitors. But how do you manage regulatory issues and run a business without compromising your product and your sanity? Find out directly from pioneers at the Craft Beverage Expo (CBE)—the premier event dedicated to craft cider makers like you.

This is the only conference that takes a deep-dive into distribution which is critical for your business success. In this highly regulated system, navigating the myriad of rules can really slow down your business. The right distribution strategy can be a game-changer, bringing in the revenue that sustains new creations and keeps customers coming back time and time again.

For one price, you get convenient access to two distinct events in one place. You’ll learn the strategy to small batch distribution at Craft Beverage Distribution Conference, then shop for products and services unique for craft cideries at Craft Beverage Trade Show.

No other event focuses on your needs like we do. We’re bringing the entire independent beverage community together, so you can get proven solutions from the people who know your craft best.

Your business depends on strategies you can only find at CBE 2019. Getting your label out there, starts by getting here.
