The first-ever Beer Marketing & Tourism Conference was never expected to be a mass event with thousands of attendees. The goal is to focus on industry professionals involved in beer marketing and beer tourism and have a more intimate experience in which attendees can meet each other, interact with speakers, and make great contacts for their future endeavors.
So with early registration at 105 attendees, the conference is sure to surpass its initial goal of 200 attendees and well on its way to selling out at 350.
What’s more, early registrations show the breadth of interest from across North America and even beyond. Current registrants come from 25 states (we are half way there!), two Canadian provinces, plus Australia.
What type of industry participants are attending? Here are the current groups, starting with the most popular:
- Breweries and Brewpubs
- Tourism DMOs (Destination Management Organizations)
- Beer Tour Operators
- Brewers Guilds
- Media (we have six already and 10 more to come on a Visit North Carolina press tour)
- Beer Bloggers
- Other: Restaurants, Marketing Agencies, Festival Organizers, etc
If you have not yet registered, please consider doing so before the January 1 price increase!
