2017 NBWA Legislative Conference LogoThe 2017 NBWA Legislative Conference will be held in Washington, D.C., April 30 - May 3, 2017.
Each year, the Legislative Conference provides distributors with the opportunity to hear from industry leaders and to educate members of Congress about the importance of effective state-based alcohol regulation, the role of beer distributors and the regulatory, economic and commercial value that distributors deliver to their communities.


The Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill is the official hotel for the 2017 NBWA Legislative Conference. Call the Hyatt Regency Reservations Department at (888) 421-1442 and identify yourself as an NBWA participant or book your room online. The room rate is $310 + tax per night.

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 March 30, 2017; however, the NBWA guest room block at the Hyatt can sell out prior to that date. Don’t delay. Once the block is sold, rooms and rates cannot be guaranteed.
