Ontario Craft Brewers Conference & Suppliers Marketplace

The Ontario Craft Brewers Conference Planning Committee has made the difficult, but necessary decision to reschedule The Ontario Craft Brewers Conference & Suppliers Marketplace (OCBC22), from February 16-17, 2022 in Niagara Falls, Ontario to October 25-26, 2022 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. 


"OCB deeply regrets the challenges this schedule change may cause participants and attendees,” says Scott Simmons, president, Ontario Craft Brewers; "however, health and safety are our top priorities."


OCB is deeply grateful to all OCBC22 sponsors, speakers, exhibitors, and attendees for their support to date, which is vital to the success of OCBC. All paid tickets, booths, and sponsorships will be transferred to the rescheduled event. 


"OCBC is best experienced live and in person,” says Paul Corriveau, Railway City Brewing and chair, Ontario Craft Brewers Conference Planning Committee. “We have made the difficult decision to reschedule to a time when it is safer and when attendees can connect face-to-face, do business and sample great beer with ease.”


Stay tuned for more details on OCBC22 in the coming months. We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time and we look forward to seeing you live and in-person in October 2022.

Our 10th annual conference and marketplace will take place in Niagara Falls, Ontario.


OCBC is Canada’s largest craft brewing industry annual conference and trade show. With the growth of the craft brewing sector in the past two decades, there are now hundreds of operating breweries, contract brewers and brewpubs in communities across the province. The global pandemic has had a major impact on craft brewing retail and tourism. Breweries are working in collaboration with their local communities, business organization, government and industry colleagues to build and sustain recovery from this great disruption. OCBC is the first opportunity for the industry to connect broadly, face-to-face and the ideal environment to facilitate collaboration and revitalization of the industry. The event gives attendees an opportunity to connect, share information and network with industry members, suppliers and stakeholders.


OCBC is Canada’s ultimate networking and education event, attracting craft brewers and industry suppliers from across North America. Brewery principals, staff and suppliers will meet, connect, network, learn and conduct more business in two+ days than could be possible in several months.
