About NBWA Events
NBWA hosts three different types of events: the Annual Convention every fall; the Trade Show every other year in conjunction with the Convention; and the Legislative Conference every spring.
Annual Convention The NBWA Annual Convention is designed to provide valuable education programs and important networking opportunities for the beer industry. Education programs offered during the convention feature speakers and seminars on a number of topics of importance to beer distributors. Scheduled each year in the fall, the NBWA Convention takes place in a different city within the United States. During non-trade show years, NBWA's associate members and brewery members host hospitalities to maintain their business contacts and form new connections and relationships with distributors.
Trade Show Every odd-numbered year, the convention is held in conjunction with the biennial Trade Show. This very special event is held in Las Vegas, Nevada, and it gives beer distributors an opportunity to interact with brewers and vendors and make valuable contacts for future business needs. The Trade Show introduces distributors to new brewers as well as new products, innovative technologies and vendors who supply the materials needed to run their operations.
Legislative Conference The Legislative Conference is an annual event held each spring at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. Industry leaders meet in Washington, D.C., to discuss the industry's legislative goals and priorities with members of Congress and their staffs.
