Fabiana Fonseca, Alvaro Loza and Vo Than Kiet will talk about recent trends in the Latin America and Vietnam trade and the growing demand among consumers for specialty products. The discussion will include an overview of the market, and increased interest toward craft beer, distribution, obstacles, and what lies ahead for suppliers to the market.
This year, the presentations will run 10-15 minutes each followed by Q&A to allow more time for networking and socializing afterward. Lunch will be provided to all guests, and a selection of beer will be on hand. This will be a great opportunity for brewers and international importers/distributors to connect.
