Welcome to Craft Beverages Unlimited Midwest


 Join us at Craft Beverages Unlimited Midwest
in Historic St. Charles, Missouri
St. Charles Convention Center, February 3-5, 2016

What’s the perfect recipe for a dynamic craft beverage conference and trade show?

First, attract EXPERT SPEAKERS who specialize in the skills and know-how needed to run a successful business in today’s regional marketplace.  You can brush up on best practices and discover new ideas and strategies for sustainability and profitability across all platforms of the craft beverage industry – wine, beer and distilling.  They’ll address regional concerns and help you capitalize on success in today’s marketplace. 

Next add a TRADE SHOW EXPO with all the goods and services necessary to address your craft beverage needs.  New and returning vendors will be ready and waiting to meet with you personally. Be sure to bring your shopping list! You can see product demos and check out what’s new in the market. 

Include TASTINGS, NETWORKING AND SOCIAL EVENTS and you’ve got the winning cocktail for success.

For decades now, Vineyard & Winery Management has been delivering its customers the very best and longest running industry events in the Eastern and Midwestern U.S.  And this year, we’re going full beverage by adding wine, beer, and distilling to our menu.  These dynamic conference and trade show events connect craft beverage producers with educators and suppliers who can help you realize your goals and increase profits.

4magsIn an unprecedented maneuver, a coalition of three leading beverage trade publications have come together to form an alliance and create three distinct conferences together under one roof: Craft Beer & Brewing, The American Distilling Institute of America, Midwest Wine Press and Vineyard & Winery Management.  These industry leaders have worked to develop their own high level program within their own discipline under the general heading of Craft Beverages Unlimited in Asheville.   All have distinct brands with niche magazines and established audiences.  Their expertise and strategies will help create relevant content for their own specialized session tracks to ensure a healthy turnout.

Be sure to visit all the sites in historic St. Charles while you're there.

"For us, tradeshows are more than just standing behind a booth trying to reel in the next project. We utilize tradeshows as an opportunity to reconnect with past clients, continue cross collaborative relationships with other vendors, and to forge new friendships as well. The Midwest Grape and Wine conference enabled us to do that and have a great time at it as well! We just wanted to extend our appreciation to Vineyard and Winery Management as well as all the others that contribute efforts to making these shows a success year after year, so thanks!"

"As a fourth-generation, family-owned business that began in the Missouri Ozarks, it's important to us to continue supporting the Midwest wine industry.  This conference provides us with an excellent opportunity to connect with the winemakers we serve, share the latest research and innovations in the cooperage industry, and continue looking toward the future."
