BrauBeviale will open the exhibition halls in Nuremberg from 13 to 15 November 2018. Due to moderate growth, an extra hall has been added this year. This results in a new hall configuration, positioning exhibitors in the order of the beverage production process chain around the exhibition park.
The three-day supporting programme includes the Export Forum German Beverages. With high-calibre speakers and networking opportunities, the Forum is intended to help manufacturers to make decisions about exporting their products. The European MicroBrew Symposium hosted by the Berlin-based research and teaching institute for brewing (Versuchs- und Lehranstalt für Brauerei, VLB) is intended for international craft brewers and brewpub operators. Another hot topic among brewers worldwide is heirloom brewer’s barley. This will be the focus of the Heirloom & Terroir Barley and Malt Symposium hosted by RMI Analytics. The BrauBeviale Forum will once again take place on all three days of the exhibition. The proven blend of talks, presentations, panel discussions and award ceremonies invites visitors to become informed about raw materials, technologies, entrepreneurship and marketing. The diversity of beverage specialities can be experienced in the Craft Drinks Area. The European Beer Star, which has been part of BrauBeviale since it was “born” in 2004, will also be awarded again at the event. In 65 categories, breweries from all over the world can submit their beers for inclusion in one of the most important beer competitions worldwide.
Various themed pavilions will present themselves as the focal point for certain issues tailored to specific groups of visitors, as the Artisan and Craft Beer Equipment and brau@home for micro-breweries and hobby brewers, or the “Sustainable Water Management in the Beverage Industry” pavilion.
At the Special Show Innovative Beverage Packaging interesting examples of packaging innovations will be provided by the winners of the World Packaging Awards that will be presented from the World Packaging Organisation. The reasons why these products won their awards will be explained clearly to visitors. PET continues to be a topical and important issue. The quality association Wertstoffkette PET-Getränkeverpackungen e. V. will cover various approaches and present ideas and solutions for PET recycling.
Of course, PETplanet will also be on site again with an own stand. We look forward to your visit at our booth 8-302 in Hall 8.
