For exhibitors

The Brewers Congress is the premier meeting of the UK and wider brewing industry. The Congress is a well crafted day of lectures and talks, with a trade exhibition in the Great Hall.

The Congress has grown out of the successful Brewers Lectures series that continues to bring inspiring talks across the UK every quarter. The audience for the lectures and expected at the Congress is made up of brewers and brewery owners, from both the very larger and the very small to the very old and the very new.

The exhibition space is limited to just 20 exhibitors plus sponsors and is shared with the catering and bars ensuring that there are extensive opportunities for delegates and exhibitors to network.

The exhibition hall is open to everyone for the morning coffee, the hot buffet lunch and the afternoon beer tasting. The hall is closed during the talks but exhibitors may bring guests into the hall during this time for private meetings.

Exhibitor space is very limited. To avoid disappointment contact our head of sales Jim Robertson today: Jim@rebymedia.com  +44 (0)1442 780 593
