5 Reasons to Attend Orchestrate 2019


The best minds in the craft beer industry will descend on Portland this February for Orchestrate 2019, our annual user conference. Our last conference helped attendees “Level Up” with a rad 8-bit retro video game theme. This year’s theme is all about helping amp up your business and “Rock Your Craft” in 2019.

Here are the top 5 reasons to wrangle your brewery band of misfits, load up the gear and join us in PDX for Orchestrate 2019.

#1. 50+ Sessions with OBeer Experts & Industry Leaders

Orchestrate is our Super Bowl of events. Our entire company has endured countless dress rehearsals and tuning sessions since early last year to ensure attendees come away with something valuable for your business to kick 2019’s ass.

50+ sessions, dozens of topic experts and ALL our consultants will provide the ins and outs of Orchestrated and answer all those burning business questions.

But it’s not just us doing the talkin’. We’re putting craft beverage industry legends and rock stars center stage to share their tricks of the trade how it relates to the OBeer platform. Key speakers include:

  • Kevin Martin (Cascade Brewing)
  • Justin Smith (Dark Horse Brewing)
  • Tanya Lizotte (WhistlePig Rye Whiskey)
  • Caleb Goodrich (Wachusett Brewery)
  • Phoenix Elder (Modern Times Beer)

#2. Role-based Tracks

Whether you’re the brewery’s cellar dweller or the accounting cat, there’s a track for you. Most classes are tailored to each role in your business.

Are you the jack of all trades or work in a position that doesn’t fit in the general categories? No worries, we got you covered with in-depth classes.

Check out the full track breakdowns here. We also know you love SWAG – complete a track and collect limited-edition swag.

Speaking of SWAG, we somehow found a way to come up with even more creative, awesomely on-trend prizes to take home and remember your experience in Portland.

Bobble heads, custom guitar picks and even some special edition Orchestrate Band tees are just a few of the surprises we have this year.

#3. Grow Your Business Through Networking

One of the biggest benefits to attending Orchestrate is networking with other users in the craft industry. Not only can you network during the conference and between sessions, there’s an entire networking hour (and plenty of liquid courage provided) dedicated to help connect you with your fellow users. Grab a beer, cider or kombucha and share ideas, suggestions, or stories from that KISS concert in ’97 you went to that got a little out of hand…

#4. New Product Launches & Initiatives

Join our CEO Brad Windecker as he delivers keynotes addressing current business trends, new products we’re launching and initiatives to help improve your business. (Hint, we’re going mobile. You heard it here first.)

#5. VIP Experience – Access Recordings Post Orchestrate

With so many valuable learning sessions this year, we wanted to provide an opportunity to experience them all. If you register for the VIP Experience, ALL the sessions will be recorded and available for download post Orchestrate. This provides access to any session at any time, so you can share with your team.
