The National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) recently announced that the sixth annual CoffeeTea&Water 2013 will be held Nov. 12 to 14 at the Gaylord Convention & Resort in Nashville, Tenn.
With more than 600 participants, CTW is the country’s single largest education and networking event for coffee, tea and water service operators.
Once again co-located with the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) show, CTW will include 12 coffee-focused educational sessions, 110 show booths dedicated to coffee, tea and water, and two networking receptions.
“Nashville offers fun, music and food uniquely suited for our event and we think attendees will love this location,” said Dean Gilland, NAMA vice president, in a prepared statement. “With more than 110 exhibitors and increased receptions and events, our plan is to deliver a show offering our members an experience that offers more education, more networking and more potential business-building than ever.”
NAMA will also offer a Quality Coffee Certificate Program (QCCP) workshop and Coffee and Brewing Fundamentals completed by more than 1,000 operators over the past 13 years.
“Evaluations from our 2012 event indicated that attendees recognized the value and growth opportunities that the CTW offers,” Gilland said. “We believe the Opryland location will only add to the excitement of the 2013 CTW show.”
Recognized as the country music capital, Nashville is also one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and has become a world-class tourist destination. The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center is considered a top meeting location, featuring exciting destinations including Historic Ryman Auditorium, The Grand Ole Opry and Honky Tonk Alley.
