Expected Behavior Policy

We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free meeting experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do​ not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. We ask all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, guests and other participants be considerate and respectful to all members and refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech. Please note, ​if you register a guest for the conference, you may be held responsible for the actions of the guest. Violations of this policy should be reported to meeting staff.

WBC​ reserves the right to remove any individual from attendance or other participation in any ASBC/Master Brewers sponsored event without prior warning or refund, and to take additional action as determined necessary, up to and including expulsion from participation in ASBC/Master Brewers Association. Any course of action recommended by WBC is final.


Terms and Conditions

During registration, all registrants must agree to the terms and conditions set forth in the Privacy Policy. Read the full terms and conditions here​​.

​​Attendees From Outside the United States

Attendees are encouraged to apply for a visa as soon as you are confident you will attend WBC 2024. Some consulates may have backlogs in scheduling visa interviews, so applicants should contact the consulate directly to determine wait times or visit the U.S. Visa website.  Do not wait until you receive notification that your abstract submission has been accepted before applying for a visa. If your abstract presents new information and follows the published rules and guidelines, it will most likely be accepted or accepted with revisions.

Customized visa invitation letters can only be issued to confirmed registrants including those who have paid the meeting registration fees), have submitted an abstract, or are otherwise presenting. When you register for the meeting, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to auto-generate a customized visa invitation letter. If you are unable to register early enough to begin the visa process and have submitted an abstract, please complete the invitation letter request form.  Invitation letters generated using the request form are indentical to the letters created when registering, however they are manually created and may take up to 5 business days to be processed.

All applicants must be able to qualify for a visa on their own merits. WBC cannot intervene with embassies in other countries on behalf of any meeting participants. If you require an invitation letter prior to registering or if you have additional questions, please contact the WBC​ 2024 Registration Desk​.​


WBC is hosted by the American Society of Brewing Chemists and Master Brewers Association of the Americas, with active participation by Brewery Convention of Japan, European Brewery Convention, and Institute of Brewing and Distilling
