Hotel Scam Warning

We are aware of companies pretendin​g to be the “official” World Brewing Congress (WBC) 2024 housing company, offering special non-refundable rates at conference hotels, and requesting credit card information. There is NO “official” housing company for WBC 2024​; therefore, NO company is authorized to solicit directly by telephone for hotel bookings or special discounts. We encourage attendees to book their room directly via the link above to receive the conference’s special group rate.

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 websiteDo not wait until you receive notification that your abstract submission has been accepted before applying for a visa. If your abstract presents new infomation 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​.
