Giuseppe Minissale will offer insights on the issues and trends impacting the retail liquor sector when he opens the innovation seminar sessions at The Drinks Industry Show.
Minissale, President of The Australian Liquor Stores Association (ALSA), is giving an overview and highlights from the second annual ALSA- IRI State of the Industry Report, which examine at the key trends and patterns in Australia’s $17billon retail liquor industry.
The findings focus on the major issues in the marketplace, the ongoing importance of premiumisation and the opportunities for retailers to prosper and grow in satisfying the needs of the changing consumer and marketplace.
Minissale's presentation is just one of the free-to-attend seminars in the newly released program for The Drinks Industry Show.
This year, the theme is Innovation, and every facet of the show reflects this. More than 20 Australian speakers will share their knowledge, discuss the future of the industry, provide skills development and insight into the latest industry tools and best practice solutions for the drinks industry.
Another key speaker will be Sven Almenning, Managing Director of Speak Easy Group and Founder of Australia’s largest consultancy agency, Behind Bars Industry Services.
In an increasingly crowded market, it has never been more important to attract and engage with consumers. Having designed the multi award winning cocktail bar Eau de Vie in Sydney along with multiple small bars in Sydney and Melbourne, Almenning will share insight into how your business can stand out from the crowd.
David Paterson, Event Director with Exhibitions and Trade Fairs, the organisers of The Drinks Industry Show, said: “This is a unique opportunity for the drinks trade to hear from leaders of the industry, network with your peers and have your say in the future direction of the industry.
“As Australia’s leading trade drinks event, trade visitors will be inspired to recognise their brand value and find insight into how they can increase their customer base.
“The free exhibition will once again take place alongside the seminars and will give trade visitors the opportunity to see, compare and discuss the latest products and services in the drinks industry, all in an environment where you can do business face to face."
