The International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT) is an impartial organisation that deals with all technical and scientific aspects of beverages. Next to providing forums for scholarly discussions, publishing of “voluntary” technical guidelines and best practices, the annual BevTech meetings are a widely recognised activity of the ISBT. These meetings are held in the US, in Europe, Latin America, Canada and India.
The current challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have made ISBT all the more conscious of the need to ensure the wellbeing of attendees and presenters. As a result of these concerns it was decided to move the 2020 BevTech Europe meeting from a face-to-face in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to an online meeting.
The date of the BevTech EU 2020 webinar is September 10th from 14:00 to 18:00h Central European Time.
On the agenda are five presentations of 20 min followed by 10 min Q&A each. The speakers are specially invited to present their experience in managing their business during the COVID-19 pandemic. Other subjects are welcome such as:
- Sanitation of Fountain Systems in a Retail Environment
- Global Quality Standardisation vs. Regional Approach
- Smart Use of Manufacturing and Quality Data
- Quality and Safety Management
- The need to launch new products/applications/packaging quickly versus proper testing
The webinar will conclude with a 50 min. online live panel discussion by some of the most influential specialists in the industry. The panel discussion will highlight the experiences gained from managing COVID-19 impacts at different stages of the supply chain.
