We've been contacted by one of the sponsors of our conference in April about persons who aren't sponsors handing out free drinks, in particular vodkas and whiskeys, etc. While everyone likes getting a drink full of free alcohol, we ask that attendees respect the financial commitment that our sponsors make towards funding the conference. They cover almost half the cost and in return they get the right to shout beverages to all of you who attend.

Very disappointed to hear this.
Has removing this sponsor and letting one of the many companies willing to sponsor take their place? From what I understand there are quite a few big names willing to take a sponsorship slot.
It shouldn't just be about what a sponsor wants when we're talking about an event built around an industry that functions more like a community.

If you are not a sponsor please do not distribute swag to delegates at the conference.
