Session details:

MADE to grow
Luke Marget, co-founder and director of home-grown functional beverage company MADE reveals the strategy behind the company's staggering growth – how it built a matrix of around 15,000 retailers, including Coles, Woolworths and 7-Eleven, and invested – very significantly – in its own manufacturing process, and outlines the next chapter for the company – a major push into global markets.

Accelerating innovation and disruption
Multinational Simplot's Ignite accelerator program will see the company back eight new tech innovators disrupting the future of food. We hear from Angela Edwards about the growing pains of start-up Chewsr, and from Craig Lambert of Slingshot who heads Simplot Ignite, about how big brand owners can accelerate innovation and create new frontiers for their business.

Technology to invade new territory
Technology is constantly evolving to help ambitious food and beverage companies invade new territory – geographically, through new sales channels, or by digging more deeply into their own data. UK software expert Andrew Dalziel will explore new technology developments that could offer an early mover advantage for fast growing Australian manufacturers.

KEYNOTE: Brands with the power to change buyer behaviour
Back by popular demand, Daniel Flynn will present Thankyou's next bold move and share how a powerful and innovative crowdfunding campaign is taking this social enterprise startup brand into a new product category and across the Tasman to start a second company.

Growth strategies for ambitious independent brands
Victoria Tulloch, founder of marketing company Kindred that works with artisan and boutique brands, will outline steps to launching and building modern, classic brands that consider heritage, craft and persona to embrace the needs and desires of a current global consumer.

Designing a brand from the ground up
In March 2015 and Archie Rose Distilling Co. opened its doors to become the first custom-designed, multi-spirit distillery and bar in Sydney in over 160 years. Archie Rose hand-crafts Gin, Vodka and White Rye as well as aged Single Malt and Rye Whisky under cask. Late last year it launched the first Tailored Spirits range in the world on a groundbreaking digital platform.

In a Q&A session led by artisan brand marketing expert Victoria Tulloch, Archie Rose founder Will Edwards and brand designer Matthew Squadrito will share how the multiple award-winning brand developed a suite of products, packaging and consumer experiences from the ground up, and created a new business model that reverses the traditional model of distilling behind doors.
