Who Should Attend
I attended session one – which took place Feb 15th and it was fantastic. I would say that if you are part of a Portland area start up or business in any industry you would do well to attend this event. Then content presented at this first session was very helpful and would apply to any business or start up.

This workshop titled – Standing Out from the Crowd: Strategies for Building and Maintaining Great Wholesale Relationships will be taught by Dr. Sam Holloway, Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at University of Portland, and President of Craftingastrategy.com.
“The craft beer consumer is increasingly promiscuous, which places an increased burden on your wholesale partners to consistently offer new and exciting brands and styles. How can you be sure your products are featured and promoted over the long run?
Dr. Sam Holloway, will discuss the wholesaler’s viewpoint, supplier strategies and tactics, and help ensure your brewery’s product capture and hold attention throughout the distribution chain.”
