The innovative leaps in the beverage industry are getting increasingly larger. Start-ups and new players in particular are attracting attention. That’s why, for the first time, drinktec is offering a joint stage for new entrepreneurs together with DICA, the leading accelerator program for start-ups in the beverage industry. The goal is to present ideas and prototypes to an international specialist audience.

  • Sustainability
  • Digital solutions
  • Water
  • Consumer world and product design

The drinktec start-up platform offers:

  • a meeting point for the whole world! The international visitors and exhibitors of drinktec and the strong drinktec network enable unique access to new, global markets.
  • connections! drinktec provides the complete value chain of the industry, from suppliers and manufacturers to industry customers and associations.
  • a place in the spotlight! The central positioning on the start-up platform is ideal for new market players, who enjoy awareness for innovative services.
  • support! Under certain conditions participation in the trade fair can be supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Action (BMWi). All important information about the BMWI joint stand registration and funding can be found here.


There will be further highlights from the supporting program (pitches, co-creation workshops and much more) during the trade fair and the opportunities to network with established companies from the industry. Details can be found under Supporting program.
