A Message from the ISBT President - Why You Should Attend BevTech 2024

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are just a few weeks away from our Annual BevTech conference. Since joining ISBT, 13 years ago, and attending my first conference, this has become a ritual for me, and I plan my trips and work agenda around it.

Within ISBT, it is the same. Our year is planned around this event. Years in advance, we secure the venue. We invest time and resources researching industry trends, discussing with experts, connecting with our network, and leveraging learnings. Then we design the program, and, of course, this is done with our volunteer members, Board of Directors, Technical committees, staff structure and speakers. As with our members and their companies, we strive to be customer-centric, and the program is designed with our membership at the center, understanding they are making an investment and need to see great return on that investment.

So, let's discuss the 2024 BevTech conference and why you should attend. I’ll make it easier for you to decide and you can use these points to explain it to your boss if you are still waiting for authorization.

The entire show was a massive success, with great speakers, great networking with peers and many leads generated. Thank you to all who helped make the event so successful!

A special thank you to Lee Malvitz, who presented the launch of a new ISBT publication: Impacts of rPET Material. This newest publication covers best practices for brand owners as well as resin, equipment and packaging suppliers working in the beverage industry. It considers technologies and mitigation actions to combat impacts from using rPET in place of virgin materials.

Water - Your Primary Ingredient Symposium - May 8-9th, 2024

Water is at the heart of beverage production and is used in beverage plants for heating, cooling, refrigeration, sanitization, belt lubrication and as the primary Ingredient in the beverage being produced.

Each use of water demands critical treatment standards which are further confounded by regulatory, food safety and sustainability guardrails that vary region to region globally.

This Symposium is designed to address all such concerns and help the bottler navigate critical challenges and walk away with a clear strategy to develop their individual water management needs.
