July 21, 2022
Coffee Legend nomination period to run through Aug. 23.

The National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) announced the opening of registration for its Coffee Tea & Water Show, an unparalleled event for the convenience services industry that focuses on coffee tea and water, pantry and amenity services. The two-day event, held at MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nov. 14-15, includes many new engaging experiences and innovations as well as a modernized expo hall, robust peer-to-peer and expert-led education and numerous opportunities to network with colleagues and collaborators from allied industries.  

The new experiential additions at this year’s event will teach attendees how to put it all to work. CTW Imagination Way, built on the success of The NAMA Show’s Imagination Way, will focus on coffee tea and water, pantry and amenity services in the workplace and public-facing environments. And NAMA’s first-ever Workplace Innovation Summit is an immersive, next-level thought leadership opportunity exploring and learning from world-class amenity service organizations at an executive level.
