Join us for the C5 Community Service Project
Sunday, May 1, 12:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Join us for an afternoon with some amazing young leaders from C5 Texas by volunteering with the Our Saviour Community Garden. This service project is focused on sustainability and giving back to the local community. The community garden sits on four acres of orchards and gardens that help provide nutritious produce to our hungry neighbors. We will be helping with various projects such as harvesting, planting, composting, and greenhouse work.
During this time, you will not only help give back to the community, but you’ll have the opportunity to meet some incredible young leaders from C5 Texas – a five-year leadership program that changes the odds for high-potential youth, inspiring them to pursue personal success while preparing them for leadership roles in college, work, and their communities.
We hope you sign up for this opportunity to meet some of our future community leaders and help make a big impact on giving back to the community!

Just Added to BevTech 2022 - Take a Tour of Tetra Pak on Thursday, May 3

We have a special opportunity to tour a manufacturing facility after our annual meeting. Tetra Pak is hosting a tour of their packaging material converting facility and the product development center located in Denton, Texas. Tetra Pak’s Denton campus is home to nearly 600 employees and serves as the company’s U.S. and Canada headquarters. The site features an aseptic packaging material converting factory, a 75,000 sq. ft. warehouse, FDA-registered Product Development Center, a Global Information Management center, and administrative offices. Originally built in 1984, the site has seen several expansions in size, capacity, and technology over the years, the most recent of which is the installation of the first-ever digital printer for carton packages.
ISBT will provide transportation to and from their facility, and the tour will take place 8:00 AM – 1:30 PM on Thursday, May 3. The tour is limited to 30 people, and no packaging convertor personnel will be allowed to attend. Tetra Pak will review the list of attendees to ensure competitors do not attend. Attendees will be required to wear flat closed-toed shoes. The cost of the tour is $50.00.
If you haven’t registered for BevTech yet, you can select this option when you register. If you’ve already registered, you can add this to your registration by logging into, then click View My Registration from the Members Only page, then look for the link to modify your registration.
