The BC Craft Brewers Conference, presented by Vessel Packaging Co. and hosted by the BC Craft Brewers Guild, brings together stakeholders from the BC craft brewing industry for an annual networking and educational event which takes place during BC Craft Beer Month. 600+ attendees will form new contacts with industry peers and professionals, connect with key suppliers, and gain insight into industry innovations, initiatives and issues. There will be beer too of course! The Conference, now spanning two days includes the Conference Kickoff on Thursday evening and the Official After Party on Friday evening.
