March 12, 2024 – BETHESDA, MD – American Beverage Licensees (ABL) announced today that it will hold the 2024 ABL Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas on July 27-29, 2024.  Registration is now open for the event, which we will take place at the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk.  In addition to ABL Annual Meeting events and hospitality, attendees are also invited to the Texas Package Stores Association (TPSA) Trade Show and other hospitality events taking place as part of the 77th Annual TPSA Convention & Trade Show.

“Everything is bigger in Texas, and we expect that to be the case for the ABL Annual Meeting this summer,” said ABL Executive Director John Bodnovich. “This year we’re excited to build on the traditional ABL meeting and all the educational speakers, networking opportunities and hospitality that attendees have come to expect, with additional experiences and value thanks to TPSA and the great events it hosts.”

The ABL Annual Meeting will continue to focus on trends in alcohol policy and regulation, as well as developments in the alcohol marketplace.  Top practitioners from the beverage alcohol industry will share their expertise and views on key issues for licensed beverage retailers.  Past speakers have addressed a wide variety of topics including changes to alcohol policies, marijuana, the economy and inflation, enforcement of alcohol laws and much more.  As with past meetings, the goal of the conference is for attendees to bring home new insights and material to their states to help them be stronger advocates for themselves and their businesses.

Registered ABL attendees are invited to join TPSA at various events throughout the weekend including the Cork Pull, Trade Show, and AfterGlow Party.  ABL and TPSA are also working together on a joint General Session on Monday, July 29 with engaging speakers that will lead-in to the ABL Brand Showcase Monday afternoon.

With the ABL Annual Meeting taking place just steps from the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, meeting registrants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the vibrant culture of San Antonio – in addition to enjoying a host of hospitality events that are part of the program.
