ALEXANDRIA, VA – Registration is now available for the National Beer Wholesalers Association’s (NBWA) 72nd Annual Convention & Trade Show to be held September 22-25 at an exciting new location – Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Register online now!
“It’s certainly been an active year since we last met for the NBWA Convention in San Francisco,” said NBWA President Craig Purser. “With all the changes and developments in the beer industry, you do not want to miss the 72nd Annual Convention & Trade Show. A new Caesars Palace location coupled with an insightful and informative general session and two-story Trade Show Floor packed with new products and innovations make this the most exciting Convention yet. I encourage all beer distributors to arrive in time for the Distributor Only Meeting which will include candid conversation between distributor members and NBWA leaders about the most important issues facing our industry.”
The Distributor Only Meeting will take place September 22 at 3:30 p.m. This meeting provides a forum for off-the-record conversation about the issues affecting distribution businesses and the beer industry.
This year’s General Session will feature an outstanding line-up of speakers including Hall of Fame baseball icon Johnny Bench and best-selling business author of Hit the Ground Running Jason Jennings, and it will feature an industry address by Heineken USA CEO Don Blaustein.
The brand new, two-story Trade Show Floor is almost completely sold out and is filled with a wide range of vendors offering new and innovative products and services tailored to enhance distribution and improve businesses. Plan to take all of the key members of your sales and operations teams to take full advantage of this year's show. Updated exhibitor information can be found on the Annual Convention Web page.
