The Buyer and Jump Start, in association with the WSTA, are organising a 1-day conference for the UK drinks industry focusing on the consumer and technology, both of which are considered Achilles’ heels for our sector. A series of keynote presentations and panel sessions will address the most disruptive and essential consumer trends, innovations and changes in technology that we need to be on top of.
