The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) and the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) announced that they will conduct two of their conferences over the same dates and at the same location. The 2012 IBWA Annual Business Conference and Tabletop Trade Show will be held on Nov. 12 to 16, and the 2012 NAMA CoffeeTea&Water event will be held Nov. 13 to 15. Both conferences will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Orleans, La.
“Many bottled water companies, particularly those in the home and office delivery (HOD) business, also offer coffee and tea to their customers. Co-locating the IBWA and NAMA conferences will enable attendees and exhibitors to achieve a greater return on their investment by providing expanded educational programing, exposure to a broader range of products and services, and increased networking opportunities,” said IBWA President and CEO Joe Doss in a prepared statement.
IBWA and NAMA educational seminars, business sessions, and networking events will be held throughout the meeting dates, and the combined IBWA and NAMA trade show will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 14.
