Washington, DC – June 16-19, 2024

A Capital Idea: Regulating for the Future, Building on our Past!


Conference Information

The District of Columbia Alcoholic Beverage and Cannabis Administration is pleased to be the conference host and welcomes you to Washington DC! One of the most visited cities in the country, Washington, DC offers a variety of interesting experiences, from learning about American history and government, to seeing many of the most iconic sights in the country.  This vibrant city is also home to great food, art, cultural attractions and so much more. We can’t wait to see you!

Business Meeting

Alcohol is a unique commodity in the U.S., governed by complicated and deep-rooted federal and state laws and regulations. Navigating this historic and heavily regulated industry can be a daunting challenge for newcomers and experienced industry members alike. Come take a trip through time as we explore historical and cutting-edge issues related to the alcohol beverage industry. The NCSLA Annual Conference promises a packed educational agenda and numerous opportunities to network with industry colleagues and friends

Join us for this year’s business program, titled “A Capital Idea: Regulating for the Future, Building on our Past.” We’ll start with a historic perspective and tip of the hat to our host city by exploring connections between beverage alcohol sourcing and White House occupants. We’ll move through to current issues our forefathers could never have envisioned, such as licensing in the age of complex ownership structures, the regulatory implications of the AI revolution and societal trends facing Gen Z and how those trends impact alcohol marketing. Other timely topics include: public safety and enforcement issues, the marketing of cross-over beverages, the balance of regulation and business and how to support a culture of compliance. The program also includes a legal update of the year’s most influential decisions, an ethics presentation and a one of a kind game show where two teams of industry professionals will face off to define common industry terms and the audience will be the judge!

As always, NCSLA is your reliable source for strategic regulatory planning and sharing of best practices in these changing times. You won’t want to miss this celebratory and educational event. To view the entire agenda and list of proficient presenters, just click on the links below.
