Launched in 2016, BeerEx Africa (formerly the Craft Brewers Powwow) was established to help boost South Africa’s burgeoning beer culture. The conference and expo have grown to attract brewers and beer enthusiasts from across the continent and in 2024 we’re expanding further. We’re moving to a new venue closer to Cape Town’s city centre, making it more convenient for beer lovers to access the event. For the first time, attendees can choose to attend just the expo or opt for a package including the one-day conference as well as the two-day expo, which showcases innovative products from local companies alongside major international suppliers. We’re also hosting evening networking events at nearby craft breweries.
BeerEx Africa is held in conjunction with the African Beer Cup, the biggest beer competition in Africa, attracting more than 250 entries from across the continent.
Our sponsorship packages are designed to suit a variety of budgets. See your logo on our tasting glasses, staff shirts or our photobooth, have your promotion merch in the goodie bags, or sponsor a food and beer pairing evening.
Get your product noticed by brewers and beer lovers from across the continent. We have two exhibitor packages available, depending on your budget and space requirements.
From expo sessions with short, informative talks to a full day conference and a series of evening events in nearby craft breweries, BeerEx Africa has something for every level of beer lover.
