WSWA Announces New Dates and Location for 2010 Annual Convention

Washington, D.C. (October 1, 2009)—The Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) announces new dates, a new venue and new programming for its annual convention, scheduled April 6-8, 2010, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
These changes will offer attendees, exhibitors and sponsors an exceptional convention experience. With larger floor space and more suite options, the new location better accommodates convention participants and eliminates the hassle of traveling back and forth between the previous Las Vegas venues—Bally’s and Paris hotels.
For 2010, the show days have also changed to a Tuesday through Thursday format to build in an extra travel day for those who prefer to arrive after Easter Sunday, April 4. The change in show days is also in response to feedback from previous conference attendees.  
In addition to WSWA’s traditional convention programs that include the Taste of the Industry, Hot Brand Awards, the General Business Session and a number of networking receptions, the Wine & Spirits Tasting Competition, introduced in 2009, has also secured a spot on the agenda after drawing overwhelming response and favorable feedback during its debut. 
“In the next few weeks, we’ll be announcing speakers, program details and schedules but I can say now that the 2010 convention is the industry event that people won’t want to miss” WSWA President and CEO Craig Wolf said.
