The market of import beer in Russia: review and databasesThe market of import beer is rapidly growing and changing. But while in the past years it was growing due to brands variety, in 2019 major and affordable brands from TOP-10 were developing actively. It seems that the fact of a brand origin from far abroad counties, even if it is not well known but has moderate price and good distribution provides for million liters of sales in the territory of Russia. Among distributors AB InBev Efes was far behind, yet the role of Baltika and suppliers of the second row got more important. The boom of German brands was followed by stagnation of import from other traditional regions (and Belarus) instead the supplies from Mexico, Lithuania and Asian countries grew considerably.
Beviale Family welcomes new partner: KIBEX, South Korea
KIBEX, Korea International Beer Expo, made its first appearance before an audience of industry professionals in Seoul, South Korea, from 21 to 23 March 2019. At the same time, experts exchanged knowledge and information at the established KIBEX International Beer Conference. The trade fair covers all aspects of the domestic and international beer industry, from raw materials, equipment and accessories to the finished product beer. “The KIBEX concept is a very good fit for the other events in our portfolio,” says Andrea Kalrait, Director of BrauBeviale and international product manager Beviale Family, about the choice of partner. “In a similar way to our own events, the conference and exhibition complement one another and offer both experts and newcomers to the beverage and/or beer segments an ideal platform for knowledge-sharing and information.”
Harper Lee, CEO of organiser GMEG, adds: “We know that the Korean beverage market has a strong growth potential, so our plan for the next step is to expand the exhibition into covering all kinds of technologies related to beverage. In five years, with Beviale Family, our goal is to settle this exhibition as Asia’s top beer & beverage exhibition.”
KIBEX reflects the aspirational Korean beer market, which enjoyed strong growth last year and went from around 70 local craft beer breweries in 2017 to more than 110 in 2018. Experts expect this figure to double to around 200 breweries by 2020. This makes Korea an attractive drinks market which international equipment suppliers are increasingly seeing as a successful platform. “These facts, and the good geographical location, are regarded as so promising that the Korean beer market is seen by industry insiders as the ideal testing ground for all of Asia,” says Kalrait, explaining the economic background. “We are very pleased to have found in KIBEX an accomplished partner in this vibrant and highly promising market.” The next KIBEX is expected to take place in April 2020. It is organised by GMEG and the Korean magazine The Beer Post.
