Due to the continued spread of COVID-19, the local organizing committee has taken the difficult decision to postpone the 14th International Trends in Brewing (5-8 April 2020) to 17-20 January 2021. Due to the amount of cancellations (both speakers and attendees mostly due to company-imposed measures), we unfortunately could no longer guarantee the high quality standards of the Trends in Brewing conference series. In addition we were aware that an internationally oriented scientific and technical conference has implications for transmission of the infection and therefore, in the best interests of everyone’s health, we felt that it was our responsibility to postpone the symposium.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this decision may cause, and we want to stress that we did not take this decision lightly. We hope we can count on you to make sure this edition will be a huge success, and thank everyone for their support of Trends in Brewing.
