Craft Brewers Conference moved
The 38th Craft Brewers Conference & Brew Expo America (CBC) has been moved to Denver.
The CBC was originally scheduled to take place in San Diego between 29 March and 1 April this year but the location and date has been changed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
It will now take place in Denver on 9-12 September.
“Shifting to September in Denver provides us with an opportunity to convene in person, making it possible to do what brewers do best—build community through sharing our expertise and passion, and learn from each other,” said Bob Pease, president and CEO, Brewers Association.
Final confirmation of the in-person event remains dependent on health and safety protocols at the time of the conference.
If an in-person event is not possible due to COVID-19 related concerns, the conference will move online.
Registration for attendees and media is anticipated to open in April 2021.
“The past year has been tumultuous for the craft brewing community, as we’ve faced a number of challenges. But we are resilient,” said Pease.
“We know that maintaining craft beer’s health and vitality for the future starts with CBC and the cultivation and education of our professionals. We hope to see everyone in Denver this fall.”
The conference provides the latest in technical brewing resources, education, and business development opportunities for professionals who work across the spectrum of craft beer.
Seminars across eight educational tracks have been developed to help brewers remain relevant and stay competitive in the ever-changing business climate.
BrewExpo America, the largest trade show of its kind in North America, is the ultimate “one-stop shop” for brewers looking to invest in their businesses and make important connections with vendors.
In addition to the rescheduling of CBC, the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition and awards ceremony, historically held in Denver, will also shift, with the awards announced during CBC on September 10.
