Craft Supply Conference
The Craft Supply Conference is modelled after the successful World Barley, Malt & Beer Conferences with a specific focus on the complete supply needs of the craft brewing industry. Industry experts in Barley, Malt, Hops and other pertinent supply industries are brought in to discuss the commercial/supply side of their businesses. This allows purchasers and technicians from the craft brewing industry to gain a deep understanding of the issues and concerns which may impact their brands but at the same time opens the possibilities to address innovations and opportunities.
RMI Analytics hosted its first Craft Supply Conference in Portland, OR from 4-6 November, 2013 and the second one in Philadelphia, PA from 13-15 October, 2014. The attendees were able to get a great overview of their raw material supplies from leading individuals from the barley, malt and hops industries. Both conferences were sponsored by many of the leading companies supplying the craft brewing industry: 47 Hops, Avangard Malz, Briess Malt, Brewers Supply Group, Canada Malting, Cargill Malt, Country Malt Group, Crisp Malting Group, Great Western Malting, Hopunion, Malteurop and Rahr Malting.
The next RMI Analytics Craft Supply Conference is planned for the fall of 2016 on the Western coast.
