BRINGING TOGETHER BC'S BREWING COMMUNITY

BC Craft Brewers Conference,
October 17+18 2019

The BC Craft Brewers Conference, presented by West Coast Canning 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. 

The Conference Main Event agenda features inspirational Keynotes, peer and industry-led Educational Seminars, and a Trade Show with 60 exhibitors joining us from all over North America – all showcased in a new location on Vancouver’s waterfront at the Harbour Convention Centre. The conference is divided into three tracks: Brewing Technical, Marketing, and Brewery Operation and Finance. It’s open to all levels of brewery staff and management, craft beer fans, industry partners, bloggers and media. Everyone is welcome! View previous years’ videos and photo gallery ≫
