Hotel rooms at the New Orleans Hyatt Regency are quickly filling up for the National Automatic Merchandising Association's (NAMA) blockbuster CoffeeTea&Water (CT&W) show which will be held there Tuesday to Thursday, Nov. 13 to 15, announced Roger Stewart NCE5, CCS, NAMA director, coffee and water service.
The reservation deadline, Thursday, Oct. 18, is less than a month away. "I urge you to reserve your room now so that you can enjoy the Hyatt's sophisticated elegance and its proximity to the city's exciting night life," he said in a prepared statement. Re-opening last year after its destruction from Hurricane Katrina, the hotel anchors the sports and entertainment district of New Orleans, and is blocks away from the French Quarter and Mississippi River front.
CT&W, the single largest education and networking event for coffee, tea and water service operators nationwide, features more than 100-tabletop suppliers, network receptions, interactive and dynamic education sessions, powerful keynote speakers, and the Quality Coffee Certificate Program (QCCP) Coffee Fundamentals. New this year is a Tea Certificate Education Session.
"Rich in coffee history, New Orleans is the second largest port of entry for green coffee. The city boasts world-renowned restaurants famous for their culinary delights, family attractions, and sensational cultural activities," said Stewart.
An added bonus this year is that the International Bottled Water Association trade show will be in the same location so attendees can benefit from two tabletop events for one low registration fee.
"This is an absolutely essential event for anyone in the coffee, tea and water service industry who wants to learn how to build their business, and I urge you to register for the show and reserve your hotel rooms today," said Stewart.
