Beverage alcohol industry panel

Panelists: Rebecca Stamey-White (Hinman & Carmichael LLP), Rob McMillan (Silicon Valley Bank Wine Division), Eric Lewis (Wineshipping), Jeff Carroll (Avalara)

Today’s consumers are living in the golden age of convenience, whether by desire or necessity. They expect to be able to purchase alcohol in the same ways they shop for other products online. But, the U.S. alcohol regulatory scheme has been slow to adapt to this fast-changing ecommerce environment. The pandemic era has put even greater pressure on regulators to respond.

During this panel discussion, we’ll dive into the recent growth of DTC shipping in the beverage alcohol industry, and the rise of alcohol marketplaces. We’ll ask panelists to share their unique insights and perspectives about the shifts in the industry over the last year, anticipated changes in the year ahead, and advice for navigating them.

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PT Breakout sessions (choose one)

Breakout A: The rise of alcohol marketplaces
Presented by: Jeff Carroll (Avalara) and Rebecca Stamey-White (Hinman & Carmichael LLP)

Over the last year we’ve seen a rapid growth of alcohol marketplaces and delivery apps, with alcohol suppliers and retailers participating in third-party programs more than ever. With the recent investments in Drizly, Vivino, and others, this channel is clearly poised for continued growth. Participating in this fourth tier of the beverage alcohol industry brings multiple challenges for both the unlicensed marketplace providers and for the sellers that list products for sale on third-party sites. In this session, we’ll provide an overview of those challenges and practical tips for compliance for both marketplace providers and participating sellers.

Breakout B: Beverage alcohol tax and compliance updates f
