DISCUS Events

DISCUS is committed to providing the industry, and particularly its members, with unparalleled access to education, networking opportunities and advocacy efforts through its live events. DISCUS events spark the in-depth and thought-provoking conversations that will grow your business and drive the industry forward.

Public Policy Conference

The Virtual Public Policy Conference, hosted by the American Craft Spirits Association and the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, provides distillers, owners or operators of DSPs, sales or front of the house teams, investors, and suppliers to our spirits industry the opportunity to engage directly with lawmakers in the nation’s capital and advocate for critically important issues. Given the unprecedented challenges affecting the country, it’s important that our industry’s voices be heard in Washington D.C. This year we’ve made it easy for you to “attend” from the comfort of your distillery, home, park, or wherever you might have a quiet spot. All you’ll need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer to connect with your industry peers and those on Capitol Hill.

Registration for this event is now closed. For more information email [email protected]
