Beverage Trade Network launches a major conference (ABID) dedicated to small and medium sized importers and distributors of USA in New York City on May 15-16, 2018.
It has increasingly difficult for small and medium distributors and importers to gain traction in the market as larger distributors either buy out smaller ones or figure out ways to create mini divisions to compete with and win over retail shelves.
There is an additional pressure from online retailers like Amazon and direct-to-consumer online platforms and apps which are constantly watching every regulatory move and how they can capitalize on these. As a small to medium distributor or importer, your business is constantly fighting these day to day challenges.
This May, we will host hundreds of small and medium importers and distributors from all over the states at the Metropolitan Pavillion in New York City on May 15-16, 2018.
The Alcohol Beverage Importers & Distributors Conference has been designed specifically to serve the needs of small and medium sized wine, beer and liquor importers and distributors of USA. The ABID is two-day event to discuss day to day challenges, network with fellow importers and distributors from all over the country, find new ways to grow and collectively address regulatory issues. It consists of TEDx-style short talks with real insights on solutions – that importers and distributors can apply in their business and achieve profitable growth.
In short, ABID has been designed to help small and medium wine, beer and liquor distributors and importers of the United states grow their bottom-line.

May 15-16, Metropolitan Pavilion, New York City.
If you are a small or a medium sized distributor or an importer in the US market, we encourage you to get involved with the ABID movement. Please find more information at
