Now in its sixth year, the SEA Brew Conference and Trade Fair heads north to Taipei, Taiwan for the first time, and will continue to deliver exceptional value to the regions’ burgeoning craft brewing community.
With the theme – Brew for Today, Build for Tomorrow – this year’s programme expands its focus from how to brew quality beer to also capitalising on the growing market for craft and premium beer in Asia.
“With recent research showing double, and in some cases triple, digit growth in sales of craft beer expected for the region, it’s no wonder the demand for such an event is increasing,” said Charles Guerrier, SEA Brew’s founder, when launching this year’s campaign.
No.1 Gathering Of Craft Brewers In Southeast Asia
Bringing together brewers, owners, distributors and industry suppliers from across Asia, SEA Brew is widely celebrated as the number one annual gathering for craft brewers in the region.
“Over the years you see familiar faces coming back to meet industry peers and like-minded people to exchange ideas and experiences, as well as benchmark with the very best,” said Charles.
And true to the tradition of bringing the event to as many makers as possible, this year sees the event move to the dynamic city of Taipei in Taiwan from Oct. 29 to 30, 2020.

What’s Brewing For The Conference?
With growing attendance year-on-year, SEA Brew is also excited to announce a move to its biggest venue yet, the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.
The 2020 conference agenda highlights include the latest innovations in ingredients, processes and equipment now available to help brewers, while also delivering crucial elements of business development for future growth.
Highly interactive sessions will feature best practices shared across three conference tracks: Brewery Operations; Ingredients; and Distribution & Marketing.
Getting In The Zones
Consistently delivering exceptional speaker line-ups since its inaugural event in 2015, SEA Brew 2020 will be no exception, with over 25 inspiring, cross-industry speakers offering perspectives of global relevance to regional focus and hyper-localisation within each country.
The development of the accompanying Trade Fair sees the floorspace increase to over 2000sqm, allowing for more than 70 booths along with three dedicated zones to enhance both learning opportunities and all-important networking.
Key features will be the expanded Demonstration Area and ‘Sensation Zones’ and the accompanying schedule of talks and samplings, providing leading-edge suppliers a platform to demonstrate their offerings where the conference breaks will be staged, ensuring a captive audience.
In such a geographically diverse region, SEA Brew 2020 will provide the best opportunity for current and potential partners to meet.
Each year the conference and trade fair attracts delegates from all across Asia, Australasia, as well as Europe and the USA.
SEA Brew 2020 will be staged on Oct. 29-30, 2020 at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Taipei, Taiwan
