Dear friends!

The 4th meeting of the World convention on beer collecting will take place on October 10-13, 2019 in the city of La Plata, Arngentia.

After tough negotiations with the city of La Plata hotels, we are able to send accomodation rates, very suitable to the personal economy of all participants to the fourth edition of the famous Brewery Collectibles World Convention - BCWC, to be organized in the city of La Plata between 10 and 13 of October 2019.

In the way to the World Convention in La Plata, Argentina, organizers 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, organizators 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.
