New Beervana Trade Show announced

New Beervana Trade Show announced

19 June 2014

The inaugural Beervana Trade Show, aimed at developing business in the craft brewing industry, is being held at Westpac Stadium from 2pm to 4pm, on Thursday 21 August.

Sponsored by Charta Packaging, the Beervana Trade Show, which is being held the afternoon before Beervana opens to the public, is for the brewing industry, retailers, restaurants, bars, caterers, media and others wanting to develop their business with the brewing industry, with the aim of increasing trade for New Zealand brewers both here and in Australia.

“Craft beer sales in New Zealand are on a strong growth trajectory, growing by 33 percent in grocery last year,” says David Cryer, “so the opportunities for continued growth in New Zealand and increasingly in exports to Australia are significant and we want to create a forum to encourage this.”

Charta Packaging is the major sponsor of the Beervana Trade Show.

Charta specialises in corrugated cardboard packaging and is the main supplier of box and display packaging to the wine industry. "Charta Packaging's service levels, quality and capabilities make us a perfect partner for anybody in the craft brewing industry as we can deliver on all levels of corrugated packaging tailored to suit the needs of individual brewers or brands,” says General Manager Wayne Emerson.

The Beervana Trade Show will be held at the new Mezzanine Lounge at the stadium, which was opened in April and has views over the stadium and out to Wellington harbour. Craft beer tastings will be on offer during the afternoon.
