Conference Information

The Island of Hawai‘i is known as “The Big Island.” While I’m sure, those of you from the mainland will laugh at our definition of “Big,” here we have all of the different topography features that you might find throughout the world, from our beaches and unique coastline with its crystal clear blue waters to our snow-capped mountains (in the winter) and volcanoes that are almost constantly erupting, to our rainforests or the ranchlands of Waimea. As your conference host, County of Hawaii Department of Liquor Control looks forward to sharing the uniqueness of this island with all of the NCSLA members and guests, and making your visit to the Big Island and the Hilton Waikoloa Village a truly memorable one!

Business Meeting

The Beverage Alcohol industry continues to evolve as consumer demands change, and innovation and technology progress. NCSLA is your consistent source for strategic regulatory planning and sharing of best practices in these times of change. Join us for this year’s conference program and theme of “Regulatory Strategies for an Innovative Marketplace.” Diverse panels about timely topics such as “disruption” and direct to consumer sales and shipments will examine various influences confronting the industry. Other subjects include: disaster management planning, Tied House policy objectives and private label challenges, the changing landscape of alcohol sales and marketing, productivity of state task forces, plus an ethics session and much more!

Social Activities

Come and experience the “aloha” spirit with colleagues and friends at the Welcome Reception on Sunday evening from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Lagoon Lanai. Monday is a free evening to explore the resort and spend time with friends and family, or visit the hospitality suite and make new friends. Tuesday delight in a sunset dinner on the beach at the nostalgic Lava Lava Beach Club. Enjoy a relaxing evening, digging your toes in the sand at this nearby beach club. The conference will close on Wednesday and feature a luau under the stars, with an exciting music and dance-filled “Polynesian Spectacular” by Tihati Productions, in honor of NCSLA President Keith Burt. A nightly hospitality room will also provide several networking opportunities.

We are working with the staff of the Hilton Waikoloa Village to provide you with an opportunity to experience many things that the Big Island of Hawai‘i has to offer, from swimming with the dolphins, to exploring the only live volcano in the United States up close, to stargazing on Mauna Kea. There are also opportunities for golfing, deep sea fishing, helicopter rides and testing your endurance along the Ironman Triathlon course. If you are interested in these activities please call 1-808-886-1234 and ask for assistance from the Activities and Tours desk.
