World Brewing Congress 2020 will take place at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN. Select events will take place at the Hilton Minneapolis. Stay close to the action, increase your networking opportunities, and take advantage of our discounted rate! Housing Reservations will open in the spring, in conjunction with registration.
1001 S Marquette Ave. South
Rates listed above are for single/double occupancy and are exclusive of applicable state and local taxes, fees and assessments. Limit of two (2) reservations under one (1) name. WBC reserves the right to cancel any reservations over two. WBC also reserves the right to cancel any reservations if the individual on the reservation is not registered for the congress six (6) weeks out.
World Brewing Congress rates are available until July 10, 2020
, or until rooms sell out, whichever comes first. Please make your reservations early for the best rates and room availability.
Cancellations are made directly with the hotel. Reservations cancelled less than 72 hours prior to arrival will incur a one night's room and tax cancellation fee.
The Hilton Minneapolis is the only property holding the World Brewing Congress group rate. Booking a room at a contracted hotel under the official WBC 2020 room block benefits you and supports ASBC and Master Brewers. When you “book within the block,” you help keep the congress registration fees lower, you help secure future meeting sites, and you enable both associations to provide important features that participants have come to enjoy. Please book responsibly.
Hotel Scam Warning
Please book your hotel only through the official WBC 2020 housing link, which will be provided once reservations open in the spring. DO NOT book through outside agents claiming to represent WBC 2020, ASBC, and/or Master Brewers. There are NO third-party companies authorized to book your hotel accommodations for you. These companies may be offering hotel rates that are above/below the WBC-discounted rates published above. No one can book hotel rooms at rates lower than the WBC-contracted rates over the World Brewing Congress 2020 dates at our designated hotel.
These organizations may ask for full payment up front. Please also be advised that once you sign any agreements (i.e., credit card authorization forms), we cannot guarantee that a room will be available to you.
Example Hotel Scams
WBC is aware of several hotel email scams that have reached exhibitors and potential attendees. The emails might look professional, include a promo or booking code, and/or offer booking links for multiple Minneapolis properties. These emails are SCAMS
and ARE NOT
affiliated with WBC, ASBC, or Master Brewers Association.
The only emails that you should trust will come directly from WBC—either from ASBC Headquarters
or Master Brewers Headquarters
. There is only one official WBC property, the Hilton Minneapolis, and when online booking is open, an email will be sent with the direct booking link. This is the only link that you should use to secure your WBC lodging. Please book responsibly when making your hotel reservation. If you receive any communication about WBC that you aren’t sure of, please forward it to WBC
for us to investigate.
