YONTEX gets off to a good start as a new exhibition organiser

YONTEX, the new exhibition organiser in the beverage and liquid food industry, has started out on the right track: following the successful staging of BrauBeviale 2023, preparations have begun for BrauBeviale 2024 and drinktec 2025. From March 2024 onwards, a newly established advisory committee will be involved in the market-oriented alignment of all activities under the new umbrella brand.

New advisory committee established

From March 2024, YONTEX will be supported by an advisory committee made up of exhibitors and the respective conceptual sponsors of the two exhibitions. With the Bavarian Association of Private Breweries for BrauBeviale and the VDMA win Association of Food Processing and Packaging Machinery for drinktec, the exhibition team will enjoy strong support from the industry.
