    The Craft of Marketing

    April 26, 2017
    3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
     Add to Calendar

    NoDa Brewing Company
    2921 N Tryon Street
    Charlotte, NC 28206

    Join SMPS Charlotte at NoDa Brewing Company on Wednesday, April 26th from 3:00pm until 5:00pm for an afternoon of A/E/C networking, craft beer, and a discussion centered on the brewery’s road to success and the current issues/challenges they are facing as growth continues. Registration includes hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Queen City Q Catering and a brew of your choice.

    Our guest speakers and NoDa owners, Suzie and Todd Ford, will briefly hit on key points, including challenges associated with a crowded industry, the brewery’s unique marketing strategy, and how their new location plays into it. Guests will find out what led to the new 32,000-square-foot space and what went into the $7 million transformation to turn the nearly 80-year old building into NoDa Brewing’s new home.

    After the discussion, we will toast the 2016 Monthly Member Spotlights and announce SMPS Charlotte’s Member of the Year. Our Member of the Year will receive a $500 SMPS grant scholarship and a custom crystal award. Non-members will be given the opportunity to enter a raffle for a FREE one-year SMPS membership. Following the announcement of SMPS Charlotte’s Member of the Year Award and the raffle winner, everyone is invited to take a brewery tour for a behind the scenes look at the brewing process from start to finish.
