No. Unfortunately, the BCB will not take place as planned from 12th – 14th October 2020 at the Exhibition Centre Berlin. Instead, the Bar Convent Berlin will be held in a mostly digital format this year.
Due to the requirements of the authorities in the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bar Convent Berlin cannot take place in the planned conception in Berlin. The background is the "Ordinance on the prohibition of major events against the background of the SARS-CoV2 pandemic" issued by the Berlin Senate on April 21st, 2020. With this regulation, major events in Berlin with more than 5,000 participants are initially prohibited until 24th October 2020. We are aware of our responsibility and the health of our visitors and exhibitors has absolute priority.
With the new title "Pouring Digital", the BCB team is working on an alternative concept combining live and digital events. Online will play a big role, but we are also examining how bars - as the heart of the fair and who act as alternative locations - can be included.
The BCB Pouring Digital will take place from 12 - 18 October 2020. Thus, the digital version of the BCB fills an entire week - the BCB Barweek.
We are working on providing our exhibitors with a digital presence, as well as bringing the supporting programme and current industry content digitally to our visitors around the world. A special focus lies of course on bringing the industry together and creating a platform for exchange and togetherness in order to celebrate Bartenders Christmas together, especially in times of isolation!
Currently there is no ticket shop yet. We are working on developing a ticketing concept for digital visitors so that you can participate as a trade visitor. Further information will follow shortly.
The most recent information can always be found on the BCB website or in the BCB newsletter.
In 2021 the BCB will take place at the Exhibition Centre Berlin from 11th to 13th October with its new “City Life Spirits” concept, that was originally planned for this year.
