Around 200 brewing experts from Southeast Asia, Africa, Europe and America attended the 7th Bangkok Brewing Conference, which took place from 12 to 14 June 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand.
This year, the visiting programme led to the Thai Spirit Industry Co. The event was jointly organised by the Thailand Beer Industry Guild (TBIG) and VLB Berlin for the sixth time since 2009. The motto this year was "Odyssey 2022: Neutrality towards Net Zero for the Brewing Industry". The 18 presentations therefore focused on ideas and proposed solutions on how the brewing and beverage industry can meet the challenges of building an environmentally neutral production chain.
As a prelude to the Bangkok Brewing Conference, a visit to the production facility of the Thai Spirits Industry was on the agenda. The company has been producing primarily fruit and wine-based beverages since 2003. In 2019, the company also entered the beer business and commissioned a brewery with a 50-hl brewhouse at the site. Brewery training courses have already been held there together with the VLB.
This year's Bangkok Brewing Conference also enjoyed a broad circle of supporters. Ziemann Holvrieka (platinum sponsor) and the gold sponsors Krones, Ecolab, Pentair and Sidel deserve special mention. In addition, VLB would like to thank Thai Spirits in particular for their hospitality, as well as Boon Rawd Brewery and other companies for their support.
The Bangkok Brewing Conference is a joint project of the Thailand Beer Industry Guild (TBIG) and the VLB Berlin. First held in this constellation in 2009, the event has developed into the industry meeting place for the brewing industry in Southeast Asia. The next Bangkok Brewing Conference is planned for June 2024.
