Corporate Counsel Roundtables: Social Media and Alcohol – Do You Know How to Mix This Cocktail?
DATE: February 22, 2016
TIME: 10:45 am - 11:45 pm
We have moved past a few tweets and a “like.” Social media is more complex now, and it is everywhere. How does your social media policy address alcohol? Do you understand the tied house issues associated with your liking, tagging, and sharing? Come hear GrayRobinson attorney, Elizabeth DeConti, present an overview of the legal issues involved in the use of social media for alcohol advertisements related to licensed premises.

Hospitality Forum I: The Role of Third Party Ad Agencies in Your Regulated Business
DATE: February 23, 2016
TIME: 8:30 am – 10:00 am
Join GrayRobinson attorney, Elizabeth DeConti, as she discusses how the legal use of unlicensed third party advertising and promotions agencies is one of the most misunderstood subjects in our business. Learn about how licensed retailers may and may not use these companies to promote their alcohol business.

How to Manage the Management Agreement
DATE: February 23, 2016
TIME: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Join GrayRobinson attorney, Grace Yang, as she addresses the complicated landscape of interim food and beverage contracts, management agreements, and the compliance issues, which arise from the two. These agreements can be challenging for chains because there is no “one size fits all” as a result of variances in state enforcement policies. The presentation will cover common issues and will provide some best practices.

Hospitality Forum II: Thank You For (Not) Smoking: Legal Considerations for the On-Premise Consumption of Marijuana in the Hospitality Industry
DATE: February 24, 2016
TIME: 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Consuming marijuana—whether for medicinal or adult recreational use—is legal in nearly half of the United States, and with major marijuana ballot initiatives scheduled for the 2016 Election, this issue will undoubtedly impact your business at some point in the future. Can patrons legally consume marijuana inside or outside your premises? Does your state’s Clean Indoor Air Act apply to prohibit smoking marijuana on-site? What if a patron is vaping or dabbing (inhaling marijuana concentrates using paraphernalia that does not produce smoke)? Finally, how does marijuana use impact your dram shop liability policies for intoxicated individuals who have consumed marijuana or alcohol or a combination of both to excess? Join GrayRobinson attorney, Jason Cetel, in this informative session as he provides insight on how to implement best practices and structure corporate policies to address these concerns.
