New Youth Drinking
Tracking Future Growth Opportunities in The Beverage Alcohol Market

The global beverage alcohol industry is facing a new set of challenges as inflation and the rising costs of living put further pressure on the on-trade and consumer spending, leading to downtrading in many parts of the drinks market. However, certain categories continue to premiumise and appear relatively insulated from economic stresses. Our presentation will look at the complex dynamics at work, the impact on consumer attitude and behavior, and the performance and outlook for the global beverage alcohol market.

Dash the Rules: Breaking the Framework and Reconstructing the New Category of Alcoholic Beverages

 1. Why do we drink? Explore what the essence of drinking alcohol is in the end.

See through the appearance to perceive the essence, what is the underlying logic of drinking? What is the core purpose of drinking? What is the deeper reason behind Alco-pop drinking?

2. Say goodbye to path dependence and explore the innovative path of wine drinking with Chinese characteristics.

Compared with traditional consumer goods, alcohol has significant social attributes: compared with traditional consumer goods with more individual decision-making attributes, alcohol has more group decision-making attributes in the consumption scene.

How to seize the core nodes in the social network to occupy the minds of users and build an alcoholic beverage brand?

How Brands Can Bond with the Next Generation of Discerning Drinkers

In an increasingly competitive market, how do drinks brands connect and align with their ideal consumers, and remain relevant to the next generation of discerning drinkers? 

In this session we will discuss the importance of brands clearly defining an authentic purpose and the way to truly connect with consumers is to share the same values. How packaging can play a vital recruitment role by reflecting those values. And yet, how even the best packaging is only one piece of the puzzle, and it takes consistency across every consumer encounter and experience of the brand to build long-lasting relationships.

We will then explore how this belief has enabled us to help brands: 

-Reignite a stuttering category

-Attract the next generation

-Become a proud icon of their community

-Premiumise their portolio

[Panel Discussion] Implications of Sake Development on China’s Grain-based Liquor Development

High and low alcoholic beverages are always in the spotlight in China's alcoholic beverages market, with medium alcoholic beverages like yellow wine appearing unpopular. But in fact, yellow wine was once a well-liked upper-class consumer product.

Sake, which is also a grain-based liquor, has also gone through a slump, but it currently begins to grow quickly internationally.

By reviewing the development of sake, what are the future options for our traditional medium alcoholic beverages?

How to Build a Billion-Dollar Brand in the New Alcoholic Beverage Industry?

The new alcoholic beverage industry is growing rapidly, and Meimi has become the first billion-dollar brand in the new alcoholic beverage industry.
