Lee Scott talks beer and has Las Vegas buzzing

Former Walmart president and CEO Lee Scott was a keynote speaker earlier this week at the National Beer Wholesalers Association’s 74th annual convention and trade show at Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

Promotional materials billed his appearance as an exciting opportunity to hear about the leadership, innovation and business strategies that led Walmart to be such a successful retailer and noted that Scott would also participate in a candid question and answer forum where distributors would have the opportunity to ask some tough questions.

Walmart News Now didn’t attend the event, but an article in Ad Age recounted some comments Scott made about craft beers, Walmart’s assortment and 26 year old buyers.
