The IBD at Inn Brew: The Brewers Convention in Barcelona

Our Learning Partner for Ibero-America, Ricardo Solis, hosted an IBD stand at the third edition of InnBrew: The Brewers Convention in Barcelona, one of the most specialised and innovative annual brewing industry events in Spain.

The IBD was represented at this year’s Inn Brew Brewers Convention which ran from the 26th to 27th of May. Over the two days, more than 1,500 brewers and industry professionals came to Barcelona to share experiences and discover the latest innovations.

Ricardo hosted the IBD stand with other 51 brewery-oriented sponsor stands, where exhibiting companies showcased their latest developments and innovations, attracting the attention of brewery professionals and brewery procurement departments.

At the IBD stand, brewers learned about the courses currently offered by the IBD and especially the new GCB, which can be taught and examined entirely in Spanish. In addition, they were able to participate in the Brewing Mastermind quiz which offered the chance to win one of our technical courses for those who answered the 10 questions correctly.

A large number of professionals attended the 20 InnTalks presentations on the central stage where topics of interest to brewers, including technical, legal, sustainability and profitability, were discussed.

The Inn Brew was held in parallel to the Barcelona Beer Festival and both events attracted a total of 15,000 registered entries.
