After much consideration, and in keeping with state and federal cautions for large gatherings in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the AMMA MeadCon will not be held in 2020.
MeadCon, originally scheduled for March 17-19, then rescheduled after the pandemic occurred for September 26-28 to follow the Great American Beer Festival (which has gone virtual), will be held in 2021, new dates are being considered and will be announced as soon as they are finalized. The AMMA feels this decision, while difficult, is the best and safest approach for our attendees, speakers and exhibitors.
We will be working to provide educational seminars and panels online later this summer and fall to provide home and professional mead makers opportunities to expand their skills in the making of mead and the business of mead. These seminars will be announced as we finalize them.
The Mead Industry Networking Event to Attend
With 2 days of speakers, an evening networking and learning event, and being right before the Mazer Cup International, the largest mead competition in the world, if you’re into mead, making mead, thinking about starting a meadery or running or working for a meadery, you NEED to attend this event.
MeadCon is the only event of its kind in the United States, bringing in meadmakers, meadery owners and employees and mead lovers from around the world. It features two days of speakers, in-depth learning sessions, and evening networking and learning events, plus a trade show featuring honey suppliers, equipment and tool vendors and book signings. Come join us!
DIDN’T MAKE IT TO 2019 MEADCON?
We had record attendance, and our keynote speaker, Mary Izett, gave a great talk on mead and craft beverages in the country. Both the pro and home tracks had some excellent topics, including a panel on recipe formulation, making session meads as a pro, working with fruit, high temp meadmaking, a study presented by the AMMA grant winners on yeast differences in a traditional mead, and quite a bit more! The evening MeadUp was packed full, and we’re moving it to a bigger space this year. We’re also expanding our trade show this year as well. Go check out the speaker schedule and subjects from last year!
