Whova Returns for BevTech 2022

ISBT will once again be using Whova as the conference app. We think you’ll agree that Whova does a spectacular job of helping everyone network, create their own personal agendas, and learn more about the great lineup of speakers in the general sessions and Technical Committee meetings.

On the app you can:
  • See the full attendee list
  • Access the latest program/agenda
  • View a map of event locations
  • Create your own personal agenda.
  • Reach out to and schedule meetings with other attendees
Attendees and exhibitors will be entered into Whova within the next couple of days, so watch for your invitation. As soon as you get it, you can either download the app or login to the Whova website to start browsing the exhibitor booths, connecting with other attendees, and setting up your own personal agenda as sessions are added to the app.
Please note that only registered attendees and exhibitors are given access to Whova, so register now for BevTech 2022! 

Remember, we will have NO paper schedules or lists during the event. The app is the only way to access this information.
