    Default Sarah Palin to be keynote speaker at Alcohol Wholesalers Convention, Las Vegas

    WSWA Secures Sarah Palin as Keynote Speaker at 2010 Convention

    Washington, D.C.—The Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) has confirmed Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska (2006-2009) and 2008 Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee, as the keynote speaker for the opening General Session at its 67th Annual Convention and Expositional, April 6-8, 2010, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

    “Governor Palin is a great supporter of America’s free enterprise system and understands that industries like the beverage alcohol industry play a key role in driving our national economy. We're proud and honored to welcome her as a speaker,” stated Craig Wolf, WSWA’s president and CEO. “We expect she will share with the convention attendees her analysis of the current political environment and her vision for America’s future,” Wolf added.

    The addition of Governor Palin to the General Session will help kick off the convention with a program that also includes the annual presentation of the prestigious Sidney Frank Award and the address of WSWA’s incoming Chairman and National Wine & Spirits, Inc., COO, John Baker. The convention’s speaker roster also includes previously announced closing General Business Session speaker Robert Sands, president and CEO of Constellation Brands, Inc.

    Responding to previous convention attendees’ feedback, WSWA has relocated its convention to Caesars Palace to offer attendees, exhibitors and sponsors an exceptional convention experience. With larger floor space and more suite options, the new location better accommodates convention participants and eliminates the need to travel back and forth between two separate hotels.

    The event days have also changed to a Tuesday through Thursday format to build in an extra travel day for those who prefer to arrive after Easter Sunday, April 4.

    In addition to WSWA’s traditional convention programs that include the Taste of the Industry, Hot Brand Awards, the General Business Session and a number of networking receptions, the Wine & Spirits Tasting Competition, introduced in 2009, has secured a spot on the agenda after drawing overwhelming response and favorable feedback during its debut.

    This actually makes sense for Palin to do. Large amounts of alcohol consumption obviously plays a role with people who think she's a credible politician or public speaker.
