Brews&Spirits Expo 2023, the highly anticipated holistic event for the alcohol beverage industry, is set to host its fourth edition in Bengaluru from 13-15 September at the Manpho Convention Centre.

The previous three editions of the Expo have been highly successful, attracting exhibitors from around the world to showcase their products, solutions, technologies and services.

The fourth edition has been extended to three days due to the overwhelming response, support and encouragement it received from the sector. With more time for exhibitors, attendees and in-depth discussions, the event is expected to be more productive and valuable for all participants.
