BC Craft Brewers Conference is going Virtual, February 3+4+5, 2021

Learn from the best

Attend our peer and industry led educational seminars organized into half-day tracks. No more concurrent sessions so you can attend them all or pick the ones that are most relevant to you.

Make Connections

We’re bringing in top industry suppliers from all over North America to join our attendees from breweries across Canada for you to connect with via our private online community.

Join our community

Brewery staff will be on-boarded to the private online BCCBG Community which will connect the industry, bolster the seminars and deliver value year-round. Sponsors will have a forum to connect with brewery staff year-round. 



Each day starts with an Opening Keynote:

  1. Brewing up real change – a discussion about diversity, inclusion and equality: Ren Navarro of Beer. Diversity.
  2. The Path Forward for the Hospitality Industry from COVID-19: Ian Tostenson President and CEO of the British Columbia Restaurant and Foodservices Association  
  3. TBC

Interactive Diversity & Inclusion Workshop

In addition, we are offering an interactive two-part workshop for the morning session presented by Jalapeno Employee Engagement: What does it take to make High-Quality Beer? Creating a lasting impact on the brewing industry by taking the right steps towards leveraging diversity and inclusion for higher performance and engagement in your business.

The Educational Seminars are divided into half-day tracks

Brewing, Marketing & Sales, Operations, and Finance. The overall content is still being finalized but we can share that there will be no concurrent sessions — stay for the whole conference or just attend the half-day that pertains to your job. Either way, you won’t miss anything as there’s no overlapping.
