BrewCon 2023

21-23 August

Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre

Its finally happening! Can you believe it?

After 3 years of gearing up for BrewCon only to cancel, the Independent Brewers Association are beyond excited to release the first kit of information outlining participation options for BrewCon 2023 which is being held from 21 to 23 August at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre. Lets hope we benefit from some warm weather so we can escape from our dreary winters and truly embrace all the ‘Goldie’ has to offer. 

Due to significant demand we are coming out to you earlier than we normally would and in a slightly different manner. Exhibitor applications have closed and sponsorship packages are now available.  

We know everyone is super excited about BrewCon, are making plans for who in the team will attend and snapping up accommodation options so due to popular demand we have opened early bird tickets from 23 Feb - 4 April.

IBA Members will receive 10% off tickets purchased before the 5th April. To access the Early Bird price you will need your membership number and discount code which has been emailed. If you don't know your membership number please log in to our website and will see your membership number or you can email [email protected].
