BrewCon19

BrewCon19

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 extended conference is jam-packed with business, technical brewing and supply chain seminars, international speakers, brewery tours, workshops and celebrations of excellence. 

The Trade Expo is the premier trade show for brewers in Australia and connects suppliers, innovators and leaders of the national and international brewing community. The trade show provides a platform for the latest and best products and services on the market and enables the growing brewing industry in Australia to build strong networks and develop profitable businesses. 

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.
