We could not hold this conference and offer such an unbelievably low price to participants without the support of our sponsors and partners. Please take the time to read about them below. We will be adding more as the planning progresses!
- For sponsor information, please contact Reno Walsh at 888.758.8687 ext: 704 or firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please mention “International Food Bloggers Conference”.
- Interested in showcasing your food product at our Live Food and Drink Social event during IFBC18? Click here for more information and to register.
- Please note we discourage events not included in the official agenda for a variety of reasons: they often are invite only, which is against the spirit of the IFBC; if planned during the IFBC they pull from our scheduled events; and they take advantage of the IFBC’s gathered attendees without supporting the conference itself. If you have an idea for an event before, during, or after the conference, please contact us to discuss sponsorship.

In 1986, 28-year-olds Marcy and Geoff Larson opened the Alaskan Brewing Company, the 67th independent brewery in the country and the first brewery in Juneau since Prohibition. Alaskan beers reflect many of the same characteristics of beers that were brewed here during the Alaskan gold rush era. From the historically based Alaskan Amber recipe to alder-smoked malts and Sitka spruce tips, Alaskan beers reflect Juneau’s local brewing history and innovation.
