The 16th annual conference included 4 lively keynote speeches, 16 practical breakout sessions, and 23 engaged sponsors showcasing new products and services. But the conference was more than just numbers — the recurring theme of in-person attendees was the joy of finally getting back together in person!
Presented by and a fundraiser for Free the Grapes!, the DTC Wine Symposium has raised more than $1 million for Free the Grapes’ PR campaign, and the Coalition for Free Trade’s legal work (CFT “retired” in 2014 after achieving its goals). These two groups have worked closely with industry lobbyists and regional associations to streamline onerous shipping regulations and to increase the number of legal states from 17 to 47 which represent 98% of the US population.
The conference is the primary fundraiser for Free the Grapes! which executes state-specific advocacy campaigns encouraging consumers to write their legislators, and working with media and advocacy groups to keep the issue alive.
