2016 IBD Asia Pacific Convention website

As you should be aware our recent Asia Pacific Convention was held in Sydney from 14th to 18th March at the Westin Hotel in Sydney’s CBD. On any measure it was a huge success with a large number of delegates registering (all up approximately 450). The technical programme was of a very high standard with many delegates commenting positively on the content. For the first time in a great many years we ran concurrent sessions on the Thursday in order to be able to include the number of quality technical presentations that were received. To add to this we had 15 Posters on display which again created considerable interest.

The Trade Exhibition was once again a highlight of our Asia Pacific Convention with 50 exhibitors providing outstanding business opportunities for delegates. Once again Asia Pacific received amazing support from our Sponsors without whom the Convention could not proceed. We thank them for their support and this is recognised on our Website with links to their businesses. We hope that you will continue to support them in the future should you require any of their services.

Networking opportunities for delegates were also highly successful via the social functions that were in put in place for the evenings.

With our new Website it is intended that the Proceedings will be published only on the Website giving full access to the Presentations. All the Power Points used in the Plenary sessions are now available and  copies of the Papers that we have received have also been published. Any further papers that we receive will also be updated.

The photographs below show the first three speakers from our Plenary session on the Tuesday. Professor Charlie Bamforth who is the current International President of the IBD, gave us an update on the IBD. Our two Keynote Speakers were Mr Mark McCrindle who spoke about “Global Trends, Impacts and Influences on the Brewing Industry” and from Lion Mr James Brindley’s speech  was entitled “Alcohol and Beer in Australia – A Brewer’s View”.
