The National Automatic Merchandising Association today released the education lineup for The NAMA Show and Coffee Tea & Water, August 18-20 in New Orleans.

With 30 sessions featuring more than 70 speakers, the program gives attendees exclusive access to powerful insights that will help meet consumer needs in a post-pandemic world, NAMA said.

“As cities and states reopen, operators are navigating significant shifts in the marketplace – the way people work, live and play has changed,” said Ben White, NAMA's director of education and training. “We know it’s critical to offer education sessions that look toward the future – we’ll uncover new trends, explore innovations and provide insights that support operators’ pursuit of serving consumers and communities.”

The coexistence of The NAMA Show and Coffee Tea & Water offers showgoers the opportunity to experience the historical excellence of Coffee Tea & Water education sessions together with the one-of-a-kind trade show floor, according to NAMA.

Designed to deliver a forward-looking experience, content is focused on five tracks:

  • Investigating Innovations
  • Community Connection
  • Taking Trends to the Bank
  • Successful Selling Post Pandemic
  • Workforce Development

From sessions like The Foodie Revolution, which will explore consumer enthusiasm for Instagram-worthy foods, to Increasing Profitability Through Premiumization of Coffee Services, focused on equipment enhancement and ingredients for success, 

The NAMA Show and Coffee Tea & Water puts expert-driven business solutions and growth strategies at attendees’ fingertips, the association emphasized.

NAMA encourages operators to take advantage of early-bird pricing for registration, available until June 17.
