National Association of Beverage Importers (NABI)

The end of March marked the conclusive final days of official and unofficial gatherings sparked by the inaugural USA Trade Tasting event in New York City.  The event hosted three days of official programs and gatherings for beverage importers, distributors, retailers and brand owners. Over a thousand beverage professionals came from around the world to take part in the convention.

Representatives from many organizations came to meet with existing contacts and forge new relationships.  Many unofficial reunions seemed to last long into the night as visitors explored the potential of business in the big city and spoke of promises and future partnerships.

Throughout USATT and no matter who you spoke with, the unanimous opinion that events like these are absolutely critical to the growth of the industry seemed to be the topic of day.

Steve Raye, president of Bevolgy, Inc. and founding partner of USA Trade Tasting (USATT), was able to speak with Bill Earle, President of the National Assosciation of Beverage Importers (NABI), about the importance of education and the significance of the launch of USATT – a truly independent trade show promoting business development on all three tiers of the US adult beverage industry.
