What is BevTech Asia Pacific
BevTech Asia Pacific 2022 is a great networking and educational resource for the soft drink industry in the Asia Pacific region. It will be held 1pm to 5pm Bangkok time on June 16th 2022 in conjunction with Propak Asia
at Bangkok’s Bitec exhibition centre. The meeting is for beverage industry professionals and run by the International Society of beverage technology (ISBT). This is the second event for the region and the BevTech Asia Pacific 2021 virtual meeting was a huge success.
ISBT’s mission in the region is to enhance the promotion, development, and dissemination of knowledge relating to the art and science of beverage technology for the non-alcoholic beverage industry in the Asia Pacific market. This event will:
- Provide networking and industry collaboration opportunities for members that are not able to attend the main BevTech annual meeting in the US.
- Enable the international perspective and relevance of the society – the “I” in ISBT.
- Focus on technical areas of the beverage industry that have the most relevance to the Asia Pacific market
