REGISTRATION OPEN FOR 2019 TTB TRADE PRACTICE SEMINARS

We are once again offering our popular half-day Trade Practice Seminars in 4 different cities. These free, in-person seminars, which cover the basics of federal trade practice rules, are geared towards alcohol beverage industry members and their representatives.

Officials from the applicable state ABC agencies will also participate to talk about trade practice enforcement from that state's perspective.
