The Independent Brewers Association is seeking creative, unique, and knowledgeable topics for people to present at BrewCon2020; the single biggest place for key decision makers and influencers in
the Australian beer industry.
Make sure when submitting your presentation you are familiar with the IBA Project Groups as
they will be assessing and approving submissions. Your presentation needs to be engaging,
informative, relevant, and original (click here for a list of past presentations).
All submissions must be non-commercial. Abstracts that discuss commercial products,
technologies, or services must provide competitive context, and show no commercial bias.
Some themes the project groups will be looking for are:
- Staff culture and retention
- Creating experiences
- Technical brewing
- Diverse spaces
- Unique business models
- Partnerships and contracts
- Innovation: pitfalls and challenges
All submissions are to be made via the iba.org.au website by April 1st, successful submissions notified April 21st.
Sessions at the conference are 25 mins or 40 mins. We encourage creative, interactive,
experimental, non-traditional and collaborative formats. Previous presentation formats include
PowerPoint, panels and Q&A sessions, however, your imagination is the limit.
We reserve the right to determine the length of each session and form panels where
appropriate. We reserve the right to organise content, combine proposals, and make other
changes as necessary to render the proposal appropriate for presentation at its meetings. The
involvement and agreement of the presenter will be sought on all such changes.
Conference registration is provided complimentary for all presenters selected for inclusion in
the conference program.
Presenters are responsible for all other expenses related to participation in the conference
including transportation, accommodation and non-included meals.
