Delegates at this year's Australian Liquor Stores Association (ALSA) conference heard from from British American Tobacco Australia's, David Quain, on changes to legistlation affecting liquor retailers and the retail display ban on tobacco products.

Quain addressed recent laws that have been passed that require retailers to restrict the display of tobacco products and outlined poetntial opportunites for profit within the category while complying with the new regulations.

He also touched on the discussion surrounding the implementation of plain packaging on tobacco products and the impact this could have on retailers and staff training.

Delegates spent yesterday afternoon sampling the latest products from ALSA's corporate partner members at the ALSA Expo and Trade Day, with exclusive specials and incentives available.

Sessions this morning kicked off with a discussion on the Fair Work Act and General Retail Industry Award, an update from DrinkWise Australia's CEO, Cath Peachey, and an upbeat session with sporting great and motivational speaker, Max Walker.

ALSA CEO, Terry Mottt, and ALSA president, Mal Higgs, will officially wrap up the conference on Wednesday afternoon, ahead of a gala dinner for the more than 200 delegates this evening.
