Experience the trade fair forum programme at the Launch Days

From 10 to 12 November 2020, the new platform will play a rather special role as the virtual venue for the forum programme BrauBeviale@stage, which was originally planned for the on-site event in Nuremberg. The highlights from the scheduled on-site programme – presentations, discussions panels and award ceremonies – are now available on the digital dialogue platform, so that the entire beverage community can attend them virtually.

For example, you’ll be able to join in the celebrations at the award ceremony for the European Beer Star, one of the most prestigious beer competitions worldwide, as the winner will be announced live on the platform. And even in this year’s exceptional circumstances, visitors don’t have to miss out on the popular tastings of the latest beverage trends in the Craft Drinks Area, as selected specialities are available for home delivery. The matching explanations by a sommelier can then be accessed at any time on, even when the Launch Days are over.

The presentations also cover a wide range of topics. Many items on the agenda focus on the issue of the future viability of the sector. Our event partners include Private Brauereien Bayern (Bavarian Association of Private Breweries), the honorary sponsor of BrauBeviale, VLB – the Berlin-based research and teaching institute for brewing, Doemens Academy, Bayern Design, BV-BFGH (Association of German Beverage Wholesalers), the World Packaging Organisation, BVE (Federation of German Food and Drink Industries), SGS Fresenius and many more.
