We recommend that each exhibitor provide an appropriate quantity of products for their TASTE table. The recommended amount is two (2) cases. Please note that all alcoholic beverages for Access LIVE must be supplied through a registered Nevada Wholesaler. Exhibitors have the option to hand-carry their products from their booth or suite to their TASTE table. If you wish to send alcoholic beverage samples via your wholesaler that will be delivered directly to your TASTE table, please ensure the TASTE destination label is affixed to all cases intended for TASTE. Your assigned TASTE table number will be provided closer to the event.
Exhibitors are welcome to bring additional point-of-sale materials such as branded tablecloths, tabletop signage, brochures, and promotional items. Attendees will receive a glass upon entering TASTE for sampling purposes; however, you may provide your own sample cups. Small pop-up signs are permitted behind your table, taking care not to obstruct neighboring tables, however, please note there is limited space.
Exhibitors are responsible for staffing their TASTE table with registered brand representatives. If needed, models and/or bartenders may be hired to assist with product service at your table. A registration fee is applicable per model/bartender, with a maximum limit of two per table. All models must be at least 21 years of age and may be asked to provide proof of age. Please note that each company is responsible for the recruitment and hiring of their own bartenders and models.
