The 7th annual BrewCon and Trade Expo is being held in Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday 3rd September through to Friday 6th September 2019 at the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre. 

Presented by the Independent Brewers Association (IBA), the Conference and Trade Expo exists to build excellence and best-practice in the Australian Beer Industry. The conference is the Australian Brewing Industry’s keystone event and is growing to be an education and trade event of international significance.

The Thursday evening of the conference celebrates with the Indies, a night where the industry gets together, beer in hand, to support and celebrate the Independent Beer Industry. The Indies is a national competition organised by the IBA to celebrate the art and science of brewing and build greater consumer awareness of the excellence within Australian Independent Brewing.
