TThe Retail Beverage Council's ongoing legislative efforts, among others, include maintaining a level playing field for all manufacturers as well as in-state and out-of-state wineries, and working cooperatively with regulators to combat sales to minors and underage drinking.

The Council also keeps close watch on all alcohol beverage taxation issues. Marketing ideas, legislative and regulatory updates, and networking opportunities abound at RBC’s annual Educational Seminar and Trade Show. The dynamic trade show, the only one of its kind in Florida, allows vendors to showcase their newest prod- ucts and services.

The Florida Retail Federation is the leading advocate for the retail beverage industry at the Florida Capitol and an influential voice with legislative and regulatory agencies. FRF works for its members year-round to reduce taxes, fight over-regulation, and promote business-friendly policies. Members receive regular communications with our Team Retail legislative alerts, and up-to-date information on important changes in Florida law and regulation. FRF also provides member discounts on current educational and compliance training and materials for alcohol retailers, including up-to-date education.
