About BrewCon – Exhibition and Conference

With over 800 delegates in attendance, the 9th annual BrewCon and Trade Expo was held on the Gold Coast in August 2023 after a three year hiatus due to the global pandemic.

This whole-of-industry gathering brings together our members, our valued sponsors, and all facets of the supply chain as well as our partners in government and aligned industry sectors.

We meet en masse to learn, to do some serious B2B-ing, network and celebrate who we are as a community over a quality indie beer or two.

BrewCon exists to build excellence and best-practice in the Australian beer industry and is growing to be an education and trade event of international significance.

Our night of nights, the Independent Beer Awards is also presented on the final night of BrewCon so a brilliant way to book-end what is always a must-do few days!

When is the next BrewCon and how do I get involved

Due to the challenges facing the industry we decided to postpone BrewCon in 2024.

The Team and our new Board are currently working on plans for the next conference and exhibition with announcements likely toward the end of the year.

We recorded and provide the 2019 and 2023 conference program as a member benefit so if you’re considering joining this is a very good reason as there were 42 presentations and panel sessions across three rooms over two days. Jump over [here] to see all the other member benefits.
