The Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America is ramping up its registration for this year’s event held March 26 – 29 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Going into its 30th year, the conference promises to be one of the biggest and best events this year, boasting approximately 6,000 brewing industry professionals and 400 exhibitors.
“Thanks to the ingenuity and innovation of today’s small and independent brewers, the U.S. is the world’s top and most diverse beer destination,” the Brewers Association said in a news release. “With 2,336 breweries operating in the U.S. by the end of 2012 — an estimated 98 percent of which are craft — and another 1,254 breweries in planning, craft brewers are economic engines, bringing jobs, tourism and capital to communities around the country.”
The Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America allows for the community of craft brewers to gather together for conversation, collaboration and education to further explore the advancement of America’s craft brewers and craft beer culture.
More than 80 seminars focusing on topics including sustainability, sales, packaging and export development, along with daily receptions, brewery tours and hospitalities will bring brewers and industry professionals from across the country together. In addition to the hundreds of vendors showcasing the latest and best products and services, the conference is also made possible by the generous support of more than 50 sponsors.
