ISBT holds its annual meeting, BevTech, each spring to transact the Society's business, to provide a forum for presentation of scientific and technical papers and for meetings of the technical committees. The annual meeting location varies each year. The proceedings of the annual meeting are published and available online to all ISBT members (CD's of proceedings are available from ISBT). Attendance at meetings of the Society is limited to registered members along with registered guests who have been invited by the Program Committee.
Influence Direction of Industry — Participation in ISBT committees puts you and your company on the frontline of influencing the direction of the industry.
Positive Corporate Image — Provide a positive image for your company as a participant in industry issue discussions and decisions.
Develop Leadership Skills — ISBT provides opportunities to develop project and people management skills through committee and society administration.
Access to Industry Experts and Influencers — Strengthen your technical knowledge, and build relationships with individuals across disciplines and industries.
Networking — ISBT provides a safe framework for productive non-competitive collaboration. Most people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level. Often within our companies we are one of few who do the same job. It is beneficial to speak with others who face the same daily challenges.
"Sharpen the Saw" — Take a break from the "work" of work, put yourself in a new space, and get a fresh perspective.
The value in meetings comes from the human-to-human connections that occur. Often people cite the serendipitous "hallway conversations" that they have with other attendees as the most valuable parts of attending an event. While these are not on the agenda, or mentioned in the breakout sessions learning objectives, when two or more people begin to discuss topics on a deeper and personal level, the success of the event to those involved becomes irreplaceable. It is the people that bring the ROI to your time at a conference."Thom Singer, Mastercardbiz.com
