Due to increasing concerns and advisories regarding the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the Craft Distillers and Brewers Association has made the decision in the best interest of the masses and the industry to postpone the 2020 CDBA Expo & Convention in Orlando, FL, May 10 – 13, 2020.

This is now unfortunately far beyond any State, County, airport or convention center epicenter and it would be naïve and irresponsible to hold such a large gathering of people thinking that it will not have any exponential repercussions. Ensuring the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, partners and the general public is our highest priority. This is now a matter of widespread health and much bigger than a bottom-line. We, as industry professionals, see this merely as a bump in the road in which our industry will overcome. We apologize for any inconvenience and disruption this may cause and we will be communicating new dates and location as soon as possible.

If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, please contact the Director of Expo & Meetings, Jessica Valby, at Jessica@CraftDBA.org or


Well wishes to all and stay healthy.
