Who should attend?
You are a craft brewer and you just started your brewery? You have been in the industry, quite successfully, for the last 5 years and would like to speed up and bring your brewery to the next level? You work for a family-owned brewery which has been around for a couple of decades and would like to anticipate the upcoming trends of the industry? Your brewery has an international presence and you want to stay up-to-date with the latest evolution? You are a supplier of the brewing industry, a wholesaler, a distributor and want to stay in line with what the brewing sector is striving to? You are working in the R&D department of a company from the beer-value chain? You are a student, a researcher or a professor from a brewing university or institute? Then the Forum and the EBC Congress is the right place for you!
The Forum and the EBC Congress offer:
- High-level conferences with presenters from across Europe, the beer supply chain and beyond, to equip you with deep insights, provoking thoughts and engaging discussions on the current and upcoming business developments, marketing trends, technical and brewing innovations as well as market trends.
- Scientific presentations on the latest state of play of research and innovation in the brewing sector, selected through a Call for Abstracts. The scientific presentations will be accompanied by a poster exhibition with a dedicated time to meet with poster holders and ask them questions about their work.
- Networking opportunities, be it at the event during the coffee, beer and lunch break and during the sessions, or every evening during the social programme, be it during the Opening Evening, the Networking Event, the Closing Evening or the Technical Tours. You will be able to meet your peers in real life, around a glass of beer, and discuss about the latest trends and innovations in the beer industry. Time has come to meet and greet again, and Madrid will be the place!
- Access to suppliers, on their exhibition booths (real ones, not virtual booths!) and during the social programme around the Forum and Congress. You can engage in business negotiations, discover the latest products from your usual (or potentially new) suppliers and conclude valuable deals for the development of your brewery.
