The conference will shine the spotlight on importers, distributors, retailers and restaurateurs. There will be 24 speakers in total which includes 4 panels and 8 keynotes.

Top USA and Chicago professionals and buyers will be helping you improve your import, distribution, retail and restaurant business. Q&A will follow right after, where you will be able to ask questions.

For the last 6 years, the drinks industry has turned to Beverage Trade Netork’s USA Trade Tasting event and conference to discover the latest trends and network with the drinks community. Our signature two-day event for the beverage industry brings together thought leaders, trailblazers, and the next generation of brand founders to help beverage industry professionals thrive.

Attend The Confernece, Walk The Floor and End it with the VIP networking party

Next to business, BTN is best known for the cocktail nights at the end of all our events. These are informal platforms to network with the industry and catch up on trends, patterns, rising personalities and all of it with a drink in hand!

This is the perfect opportunity to convert those connections that were made in the two days of business. With lip-smacking cocktails in the heart of the city and lots of conversations to catch up on, it is this party that is the perfect finisher. Feel free to dress up because our photographer will be there for the paparazzi moments. If you’ve made it to this party, you’ve probably made it to the creme de la creme of Chicago's and suburbs drinks industry.
