Please note: Nevada is a primary source state, if your product is registered in the state of Nevada you must use your registered wholesaler to clear and deliver product for the WSWA Convention & Exposition.  Please review the Alcohol Beverage Product Handling Guidelines for more information if your product is registered with a wholesaler other than the two WSWA member wholesalers noted below.
– Breakthru Beverage Group
– Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits

REMEMBER!  Freeman cannot accept alcohol beverage product shipped to their warehouse. Caesars Palace will not accept alcohol beverage product shipped directly to the hotel or delivered to their dock. You may not walk or carry alcohol beverage product directly into Caesars Palace.  Product that is found to be in violation may be confiscated and will be subject to the appropriate taxation. 

Alcohol Beverage Shipping Regulations 

International Exhibitors: If your alcohol beverage product is coming into the United States and is not yet registered in the U.S., you must complete a COLA waiver form to have either Breakthru Beverage Group or Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits obtain a COLA waiver on your behalf for your alcohol beverage product(s). We also HIGHLY recommend the use of a customs broker to clear your product once it arrives in the United States. If you do not have a customs broker, we recommend our preferred vendor Keuhne & Nagle.
