What is YONTEX GmbH & Co. KG?

What are the advantages of combining the drinktec and BrauBeviale brands under the YONTEX umbrella?
YONTEX was founded to take advantage of synergies between the drinktec and BrauBeviale events. The aim was a forward-looking evolution of the two organisations’ current and future event formats, so as to provide even more attentive support for the needs of the international beverage and liquid foods industry. The two trade fairs’ focuses and distinctions from one another will be sharpened, at the same time enabling them to custom-tailor their services to their markets (both national and international) and their customers.
