We have heard from a number of stakeholders requesting that Wholesaler licensees be able to host these events on their licensed premises. While this particular Regulation is designed to address only the ability for on-premises retail licensees to host these events, the Division remains committed to addressing the Wholesaler request during the regular rulemaking session this year. In the interim, we welcome any thoughts you may have, or suggested language addressing this issue. Please forward any such comments to:

Lastly, the online portal for uploading the invoices described in the Trade Show Regulation has been built and tested by select members of the industry.

Again, we thank you very much for your participation in this process and look forward to seeing everyone this summer for the regular rulemaking session.
