Feira Brasileira da Cerveja, which is part of the Beviale Family since 2018, is set to welcome the Brazilian beer sector to Blumenau from 13 to 15 March 2019.

drink technology India (dti), the most important event for India's beverage and liquid food industry, has been postponed at the request of the exhibitors. The trade fair will now take place from April 10 to 12, 2019. The Bangalore International Expo Centre will remain the exhibition venue. The second event date of dti in 2019, in New Delhi, remains unchanged.

The fair had been planned for the end of February (Feb. 28 to Mar. 3) in Bangalore and is mainly aimed at Indian exhibitors and visitors. It has now been postponed following close consultation with the industry.

Numerous Indian exhibitors had requested that the event not be held at the planned date. Background to this are the production cycles and the annual statement of accounts of the companies that tie up the workforce during this period. Accordingly, the number of registrations for the new date has remained virtually unchanged: around 95 percent of the Indian exhibitors who had already registered will also attend the new date. The international companies will also remain loyal to the event in April.

On 3 and 4 June 2019, Europe’s brewers will gather in Antwerp, Belgium.
