NAMA is now accepting proposals for education sessions for the 2019 Coffee, Tea & Water Show in Anaheim, CA, taking place November 18-20.

Education content will include topics around innovation and disruptive technologies, sustainability, better-for-you drinks, caffeine and health, consumer and industry trends and the future of coffee (or tea, or water).”
A few key questions and content themes to guide proposal development include:
- Where is the industry going next?
