The 8th annual BrewCon and Trade Expo is being held in Brisbane, Australia on Monday 21st September through to Wednesday 23rd September 2020 at the Brisbane 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 Wednesday 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.

The BrewCon Conference is programmed by IBA members and project groups. Presentation submissions are now open until April 1st and the IBA encourages every aspect of the Australian Indie Beer Industry to apply. For inspiration please refer to previous programs.
