The BC Craft Brewers Conference hosted by the BC Craft Brewers Guild and presented by Great Little Box Company | Ideon Packaging, brings together key stakeholders from the BC craft brewing industry for an annual networking and educational event.
In response to current public health advisories, we have taken the opportunity to innovate and develop a conference focused on enriched virtual experiences that will keep our community connected during the conference and throughout the year.
To do this, the conference will feature an opening Keynote Speaker each day, educational seminars and a new private online community platform. The BC Craft Brewers Guild Community will create space for attendees to form new contacts directly with industry peers, connect with industry suppliers and gain insight into key industry issues, year-round.
- Brewing up real change – a discussion about diversity, inclusion and equality: Ren Navarro of Beer Diversity
- The Path Forward for the Hospitality Industry from COVID-19: Ian Tostenson
President and CEO of the British Columbia Restaurant and Foodservices Association
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. No more 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.
The Conference will be preceded by and closed out with an entertaining online quiz show, hosted by Benji Duke from quizthis.ca. We’ll be calling on you to form your teams!
Tickets are $20 plus taxes and fees for Guild member brewery staff and Brewing School Students. $50 for the Public and Non-Member Brewery staff.
50% from every ticket sold will go to support the Canadian Craft Brewers Association and our collective efforts to create a more inclusive and diverse craft beer community.
