At the end of September, Beverage Industry’s parent company BNP Media acquired Beverage World as well as its successful and well-attended BevOps Fleet Summit. Through this acquisition, the BNP Media Events team now will manage and produce the BevOps Fleet Summit, while Beverage World’s digital and print properties ceased operations, with October being the final print publication.

As we undergo this transition, I would like to thank the staff, contributors and advertisers who were a part of Beverage World’s long history in the business-to-business media market. We are grateful for your contributions during its tenure.

Under BNP’s ownership, we will be combining a shared dedication to editorial excellence and integrity as we help to empower beverage market professionals through our resources and increase engagement across all media platforms.

Under BNP Media Events, our  team will execute the production of the BevOps Fleet Summit with the same goal it does for all BNP business meetings, conferences, tradeshows, workshops, webinars and industry events: to help professionals succeed in business.

A learning and information-sharing experience for warehousing operations and fleet management, the BevOps Fleet Summit will continue to address the business challenges and industry trends that are impacting today’s beverage market. Dates and location of the 12th annual event are yet to be determined, but you can rest assured that under BNP Media Event’s leadership, the conference will continue to provide you with the opportunity to connect with peers, meet with solution providers and arm yourself with tools and information you need.

Thank you once again to all those who were part of Beverage World, and we welcome this opportunity to serve you through our resources at BNP and Beverage Industry.
