80th NBWA Annual Convention & Trade ShowNBWA's 80th Annual Convention and Trade Show  will take place October 8-11, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Call Caesars Palace at 1-866-227-5944 and identify yourself as an NBWA participant or book your room online. The room rate is $209 + tax per night for the Forum Tower and $217 + tax per night for the Augustus, Octavius and Palace Towers.

NBWA encourages you to make hotel reservations early, as the hotel will sell out. The last day to make reservations and receive the group rate is September 5, 2017; however, the NBWA guest room block can sell out prior to that date. Don’t delay. Once the block is sold, rooms and rates cannot be guaranteed.

Trade Show

Show off your services and get your products in the hands of nearly 4,000 distributor, brewer and associate members. NBWA attendees are highly qualified buyers: not only do eight out of 10 attendees have final say in purchasing decisions, but they also plan to buy one or more products/services they see at the Trade Show.

NBWA member exhibit rate: $2,500 per 10'x10'
Non-member exhibit rate: $3,000 per 10'x10'
Exposed corner charge: $125 each

This has been a sold-out event every year; do not wait to reserve your booth!
