10th to 13th of October 2019
IV Brewery Collectibles World Convention

Dear friends collectors of the world:
In the way to the World Convention in La Plata, Argentina, I want to send you the latest news of the Organization, in order to take knowledge of all what is happening and that, thanks to God, is already set up permanently for a good event.
The biggest problem faced is that the “national meeting of women” (already mentioned as matching sane dates than our BCWC) has taken hughe dimensions... more of 100,000 women expected from all parts of Argentina, putting at risk the safety of all official activities carried out in the city, by thus, the municipality of La Plata decided to cancel all events without exception, for the dates of 10 to 13 October above all what was going to be in the premises of the Pasaje Dardo Rocha, principal place of our event.
Notwithstanding this terrible news for our expectations that were already fixed, we moved quickly and were able to arrange the use of the Sports Centre of the Union of SOSBA, located 25 blocks from all official hotels, with facilities including that are biger and comfortable than the same Pasaje Dardo Rocha, where you will enter with exclusive bus service between the 9 AM and 7 PM, from and to the hotels, for transportation of collectors and their items.
The 300 tables are already rented that we hope are taken by collectors, 2.20 mts long, by 0.80 m wide with their tablecloth and two chairs, each.
We have rooms provided for meetings of the WEC and the General Assembly of delegates, also at the SOSBA sports centre.
We have arranged the reception cocktail in the ceremonial room of the Honorable Senate of the P.Bs.As. and statements of interest Municipal, the Chamber of Representatives and almost done in the Chamber of senators.
There are still some rooms in the two main hotels (Corregidor and Days Inn) with preferential rates.

Main information

We've being working very hard during the year to have everything ready as soon as possible for our October world convention.

Accomodation: three good hotels and one hostel were negotiated and are full blocked for our people attending the event. Prices are 75 usd the double room, or less per night, which we consider a great rate. Do not “sleep”, to make the reservations... New hotels will be higher rates.

Car museum: free admission for the attendants with registration tag.

Gift bag: will be given to collectors during registration, including presents from the sponsors, commemoratives glass, bottle (special edition), coasters, stickers, diploma of attendance, crown caps, etc

Tables: so far we will have 300 rented tables and tablecloths. 2,2 x 0,8 meters size.

Transfer service: we arranged with a company to have a 24 hs transfer from and to both Argentinian airports (international and domestic) to La Plata hotels. Very good rate of aprox 45 usd (still negotiating). You can find the contact information on this web page.

Trade floor building: already reserved for the event with local governant security and hired private security to keep safe the collectibles at night, after the trading hours.

Official declarations of interest: already given by local government, provincial senators and representatives. We are requesting the national.

Meals: the registered attendants will have included the cocktail reception on October 10th, with social competitions and dancing, and the final banquet on the night of October 13th at Corregidor Hotel, with recognitions, big key given from La Plata club to Turkish club, announcements for nexts BCWC in the future. Etc. Also at the trade floor sessions will be food trucks facilities and probably free beer. (Negotiating with the main sponsors)

Important: no sponsors or government give money to the organization. It is not usual, and today in Argentina the situation doesn't help for it. Anyway it was expected, and we have everything covered.

Staff: we will have the leading coordination in my person, with three co-coordinators: Sergio García Reynaud, Cristian De Antoni, and Alfredo Aprea (treasure); (all Spanish and English speaking persons); 15 persons from the local club, 8 more from national COLCER club and 5 more from URUCER (uruguayan club). Obviously all of them with different responsibilities.

There are some other few details that will be informed in the near future.
