About CloudBrew

CloudBrew started in 2013 as a small-scale event focused on cloud technologies and Microsoft Azure.

Microsoft Azure

Two full days of Microsoft Azure, with several tracks to choose from! We will have some local and international speakers who will share their knowledge and experience.

Great lunch

The event takes place in a former brewery. A lunch buffet will take care of our inner selves. After all, brains that learn need energy!

Small scale

We try to balance the size of CloudBrew to give the event a more intimate feeling, where everyone is approachable - attendees and speakers. Two days of learning that are really worth everyone's valuable time.


Organized by AZUG, the Belgium Microsoft Azure User Group, CloudBrew originates from the community. Both you and our speakers are part of it. Ideal to network with peers!

Call for Papers

Give us your best sessions! Topics related to Microsoft Azure, AI, IoT, big data, architecture, scalability, distributed systems, security, project experiences, ... are very much welcomed. Anything you are passionate about in these areas could have its place at CloudBrew! Make sure to submit more than one session! (2-3 is preferred)

Note we have a limited budget and will probably only accept speakers from nearby (Belgium and Europe). If you would like to bring your partner, we can not cover travel but we can cover hotel.

We expect to confirm sessions by July 2024.

CloudBrew takes place at Lamot, Van Beethovenstraat 8-10, 2800 Mechelen (Belgium)

The heart of Mechelen is a car-free zone. We encourage our visitors to use public transport. Mechelen has a direct connection by train from most other cities in Belgium.

If you choose to come by car, you can use the relatively inexpensive peripheral car parks "Zandpoortvest" or "Douaneplein". These car parks are all within walking distance (1.2 – 1.6km) of Lamot. Q-Park Lamot and Indigo parkings are closer by the venue.

Check Lamot's website for up-to-date parking and public transportation options. More parkings in Mechelen can be found on the Toerisme Mechelen website.
