Networking Opportunities Abound at Brewbound Session San Diego


Brewbound Session San Diego will take place this Thursday and, in addition to featuring thought-provoking discussions with a stellar lineup of industry executives and entrepreneurs, we’ve also carved out plenty of time for attendees to enjoy some great beers and intimate conversations with one another.

To kickstart the networking, registered Brewbound Session attendees are invited to join the official welcome reception, sponsored by Blue Horseshoe, taking place at the “Paradise Terrace” at Paradise Point (1404 Vacation Road, San Diego, CA 92109) on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 6:00 PM. Introduce yourself to fellow attendees while enjoying a beer and light appetizers under the San Diego sky.

We know the connections created at Brewbound Session are highly valued, so during the main event on Thursday, we have extended the networking and lunch breaks. This program restructuring will allow attendees ample opportunity to converse with speakers off-stage, while still having time to network with fellow brewers, distributors, investors and suppliers.

Following the conference, attendees are invited to imbibe and socialize at the Brewbound Session happy hour, which will take place on-site immediately following the conclusion of the conference.

Finally, at 7:00 P.M., attendees are encouraged to continue their conversations at the Official Brewbound Session After Party, hosted by our friends at Coronado Brewing (1205 Knoxville St. San Diego, CA 92110). A selection of complimentary Coronado Brewing beers will be on tap and the event is ONLY OPEN to Brewbound Session attendees, so bring your badge!
