THIS IS THE PRODUCER PORTAL FOR AIAB 2017
Assuming you've read about AIAB, consider this should not feel like a festival or conference. You won't be stuck behind tables sharing free product to people just there to drink for free or sample what you make. Instead, you'll be in front of a table or not at a table at all. We want you walking around and engaged in the event as much as possible.
There are 20 total spots available for Friday night on 4/28 - 7 left as of 3/21
There are 50 total spots available for Saturday day on 4/29 - 13 left as of 3/21
There are 20 total spots available for Saturday night on 4/29 - 9 left as of 3/21
Yes you will be able to promote your brand - 100%. The difference is we're not going to charge you for it. We just ask that you bring product to share/display, and help us get the word out about the event.
Our #1 priority is creating an educational experience for students young and old. There will be industry people there as well. Think of it as growing your next generation of ambassadors!
Because students are our priority, we are not trying to make money any way we can. You spend enough money to gve away your free drinks. We want to create as much positive exposure for your brand, and to enable as much learning as possible.

Do producers have to pay?
- To simply attend the opening session, symposium or closing session (non VIP), there is NO CHARGE if you are a verified producer.

- Product contributed to the event will be put on display on our museum, and may be consumed during different sessions where appropriate.
- For extra exposure, refer to our partnership section
Will participants in AIAB be able to taste my product?
- ABSOLUTELY!! If your product is non-alcoholic we encourage producers to share anywhere and everywhere.
- If the product is alcoholic, we restrict such tastings to the opening and closing sessions because Saturday during the day we will have many students that are underrage. This will be strictly enforced.
- All products, including alcoholic ones, will be on display in our museum throughout the conference
How do the awards work?
- AIAB is partnering with people/entities globally to recognize 'containers' that are exemplary.
- Most of this recognition is being done virtually using social media.

- A seperate competition will award those who contribute concepts for packaging and products.
