The Craft Beverage Expo is right around the corner, and there is still time to register! This inaugural event takes place in San Jose, CA on May 6 – 8, 2014, and the Stoel Rives Beverage & Hospitality Group has you covered! We are pleased to offer our blog subscribers a $100 discount off of the full registration. Please click here to register by using registration code: STOELRIVES14.

Here are some reasons why we are especially excited for the Expo:

  1. Agenda! The CBE Advisory Board did its homework and has lined up a unique mix of speakers covering a wide range of topics, including sales, marketing, regulatory and legal compliance, and business development, among others. You certainly don’t want to miss the "Trademark Primer," presented by Anne Glazer of Stoel’s Technology and Intellectual Property Group on Wednesday, May 7 at 11:00 a.m. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of the trademark clearance and registration process, as well as how to avoid conflicts. You can read more about the presenters and topics at Craft Beverage Expo Schedule at a Glance.
  2. Audience! The conference promises to unite artisan wine makers and craft beer, cider, and spirit producers over the course of two days. Each market segment will be able to share best practices with one another at a trade show dedicated exclusively to the growing craft industry.
  3. Exhibitors! More than 100 exhibitors and vendors committed to moving the craft beverage industry forward will be in attendance at the expo. Be sure to stop by Booth #405, where Stoel alcohol beverage lawyers will answer your hot topic industry questions. Follow us on Twitter at @stoelrives to test your knowledge on legal issues that impact your industry. Correct answers will receive a prize (while supplies last).

We look forward to mixing and mingling with our clients and friends at the 2014 Craft Beverage Expo.
