The 2017 conference will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
Hotel Deposit Required at Time of Reservation
All reservations require a deposit of $212 which will be charged at the time of booking. If the reservation is cancelled on or before February 10, 2017, the deposit is refundable less a $12 processing fee. If the reservation is cancelled on or after February 11, 2017, the deposit is non-refundable. This will appear on your credit card as ConferenceDirect LLC. A processing fee of $12 will be deducted from the deposit and $200 will be applied towards your reservation. Each hotel has its own cancellation policy which could increase to a cancellation penalty of 1 night’s room and tax.
Hotel Scam Warning
Conference Direct is the official housing company of the Brewers Association. The BA is aware of companies pretending to be the “official” Craft Brewers Conference housing company, offering special non-refundable rates at Craft Brewers Conference hotels, and requesting credit card information. Companies identified in this scam include, but may not be limited to: CBS International, Convention Housing Services, Exhibition Housing Services, EHM Travel, Global Housing Company, Global Travel Partners, National Travel Associates L. L. C, NTA Rooms, and Travelingo Inc.
Contact by any other housing company or hotels should be considered a scam. All attendees and exhibitors should be aware that no one from the Brewers Association, the Craft Brewers Conference or Conference Direct solicits directly by telephone for hotel bookings or special discounts.
