The NAMA Show and Coffee Tea & Water — Together in 2021

ARLINGTON, VA — December 1, 2020 — Today, NAMA announces plans to co-locate its two flagship events on August 18-20, 2021 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA for what will be the largest industry gathering of the year. For the first time, The NAMA Show and the Coffee Tea & Water (CTW) will take place side-by-side, delivering a convenient and rewarding one-stop experience for all segments of the convenience services industry.

“We’re co-locating these events after careful consideration and consultation with NAMA stakeholders,” stated NAMA’s President & CEO, Carla Balakgie. “The ‘Together in 2021’ experience is designed to help attendees optimize time, resources, and return on investment during 2021, a year that is certain to be challenging in many ways. The event will showcase the unique and independent value of each show, while maximizing shared interests and audiences in a safe and value-added way.”

With the support of the industry, NAMA is committed to delivering new opportunities for both NAMA Show and CTW attendees. “Hosting The NAMA Show and CTW in one location delivers more organic and planned opportunities for operators and suppliers to come together to do business in-person, something everyone is yearning to do safely,” said Josh Rosenberg. “As NAMA’s Chair of the Board, I’m looking forward to seeing the unique CTW educational value intertwined with the vibrant business development and innovation showcase of The NAMA Show.”

The NAMA Show is the largest convenience services event that delivers business opportunity and education for professionals in the vending, micro market, pantry, office coffee service, foodservice and unattended retail sectors. CTW is the world’s largest event dedicated to the US coffee services industry. It provides insights into workplace solutions by showcasing trends, technologies and new products that are impacting business and driving change.

The 2021 co-located meeting will provide world-class knowledge and instruction, networking opportunities, and introduce numerous new products/services to help grow and transform business in line with emerging changes to on-premise and at-home work environments.

Registration is now open for the 2021 co-located events at Together in 2021. More information about exciting format changes—including new ways of connecting operators and suppliers and new product discovery—will be forthcoming as NAMA adapts to the evolving environment. In addition, NAMA remains steadfastly committed to ensuring the health and safety of attendees, vendors and everyone associated with the event, implementing the requisite protocols to balance effective group interaction with individual protection.
