Here are some highlights of what you can expect as an Associate Member:
The WSWA convention is the industry’s premier networking event between wholesalers and suppliers. Industry suppliers use this opportunity to get their company name and product in front of over 2,000 industry professionals by reserving an exhibit booth or a hospitality suite. As an Associate Member, you will receive preferred consideration of exhibit booth and hospitality suite space. Associate members also receive registration discounts and a company listing in the convention program, which is distributed to everyone who attends the convention. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to cultivate new business and expand existing relationships.
The WSWA directory is used as an industry wide resource of distributors, suppliers, state and federal regulatory agencies and other associations serving the industry. Associate Members receive a complimentary ad in the directory and there is a section dedicated specifically to Associate Members to showcase your support for the industry and help you stand out from other suppliers.
There are many ways to get your company recognized as a supporter of WSWA and an important part of the beverage alcohol industry. WSWA will promote your status as an Associate Member through semi-annual mailings to our regular membership. And you can use a set of our distributor member mailing labels for your next direct mail piece, available exclusively to WSWA Associate Members. And don’t forget to place your “Associate Member of WSWA” logos on your website and business cards.
