“It’s an incredible honor to address my new friends and colleagues in the wine and spirits industry as the chosen keynote speaker. I'm not only proud, but extremely excited to celebrate the launch of Meili Vodka — our new sustainable brand of craft spirits. These three days will center around the elevation of discovery, shared stories and the beauty of new frontiers,” 

Jason Momoa, Global Actor, Activist and Entrepreneur

Tom Cole Headshot

“WSWA’s convention, now known as Access LIVE, has and will always be the strongest platform to foster the acceleration of all three-tiers of the industry as we continue to make the U.S. alcohol marketplace the best in the world.”

Tom Cole, WSWA Chairman of the Board


"I can’t wait to share my new MoShine brand with everyone at Access LIVE this April. It was inspired by my love of hip hop and country music and named as a tribute to my hometown of St. Louis, MO-ssouri. I want everyone to forget everything they’ve thought about moonshine in the past and get ready for the party I’m bringing, it’s time to turn up and let the Mo’ Flo!”

Nelly, Grammy Award-Winning Artist, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist

“I really love the new changes to Access LIVE! Getting time with wholesalers on the expo floor has always been a challenge. However, with the way they have combined the expo halls into one large space and centralized supplier suites, I feel exhibitors like us will see a huge difference in traffic flow to the expo hall.”

Corrie Olsen, CEO, Infuzion Solutions

“I have attended WSWA’s convention for years and am very excited for the return of the show in April. WSWA’s convention has always provided a best-in-class experience for exhibitors. The reimagined Access LIVE will bring new opportunities to Broken Shed and all other exhibitors and attendees.”

Jean-Marie Heins, Chief Marketing Officer for Broken Shed Vodka
