Wrap up your BevCon experience by peering into the future with a panel of trend-watchers. Media experts focused on wine, beer and spirits/cocktails will run down a Top 10 list that unveils predictions about what we’ll be drinking, how we’ll be drinking – and what’s behind some of the changes ahead. What will cocktails look like? How are the wine and spirits industries evolving? Are beer styles going retro? Will all the bartenders be replaced by robots? Attendees will walk away with a deeper understanding of what's likely to transpire in the year ahead – and beyond.
