IBD Asia Pacific Convention

37th Asia Pacific IBD Convention: Adelaide, March 20 – 24 2023

The Asia Pacific Section of the Institute of Brewing & Distilling (IBD) invites you to be part of this memorable event in Adelaide.

For an industry with its very foundations in sociability and learning, it has been too long since we all came together face to face! Adelaide 2023 is our big comeback, and we know that the industry is counting down the days!

For the first time since Wellington 2018, we will finally reconnect with old friends and colleagues and create new friendships among members of our brewing and distilling communities, whilst being enlightened with the latest knowledge and new technologies developing in our industry.

This convention has special meaning as it coincides with the 70th anniversary of the Asia Pacific Section, which was inaugurated here in Adelaide the capital city of South Australia back in August 1953.

For the first time, our three-day technical programme will feature a full day of parallel sessions for brewers and distillers. Including both brewing and distilling focussed panel sessions.

Our main agenda is to deliver a technical and social programme for local, national, and international delegates involved in the brewing, distilling and associated industries.

The last Adelaide convention was held in 2002 and since then our city has grown and developed a vibrant scene of craft brewing and distilling that is on par if not the best Australia can offer.

Adelaide is the wine capital of Australia for those of you who wish to experience the charms of our wine regions before or after the convention. Also known as the festival state, Adelaide is rich in arts and cultural venues that is surrounded by scenic parklands as well as offering some of Australia’s best pristine beaches and coastal towns.
