Michigan Broadcast Engineering Conference Vendors

Beer & Bull
Tuesday, March 12, 2024, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Lansing Brewing Company
518 E. Shiawassee St., Lansing MI


What started in the early 2000's as a casual gathering of broadcast engineers the evening before the (then) Great Lakes Broadcasting Conference & Expo, has grown into one of the MAB's most popular events. Beer & Bull is an annual industry get-together and an opportunity for vendors, sponsors, and MAB members to network and catch-up...with beer and (sometimes) 'bull.'

All 2024 Michigan Broadcast Engineering Conference registrations include a ticket to Beer & Bull.

The Venue
One of the first breweries in Michigan's capital city, the Lansing Brewing Company supplied craft beer to artisans, laborers, and tradesmen as they built our city over a century ago. Opened a year after Ransom E. Olds' historic automobile ride down a city street in 1897, the Lansing Brewing Company welcomed its first customers.

Thank you Beer & Bull Sponsor
