2013 IBWA, NAMA Conferences Share Date, Location
The combined IBWA and NAMA tradeshow will be held Nov. 13
The International Bottled Water Assn. (IBWA) and the National Automatic Merchandising Assn. (NAMA) will again conduct two of their conferences over the same dates and at the same location. The 2013 IBWA Annual Business Conference and Tradeshow will be held Nov. 11 to 15, and the 2013 NAMA Coffee Tea & Water show will be held Nov. 12 to 14. Both conferences will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.
The two organizations met together in 2012 and feedback from conference attendees indicated that it was a successful co-location. Joint attendance reached 1,000 registrants. These individuals were able to experience a new level of networking and education through access to 132 exhibiting companies during the tradeshow and by participating in the 33 educational sessions that were offered. IBWA and NAMA plan to continue to build on this success for their 2013 conferences in Nashville.
The IBWA registration fee includes access to all NAMA events.
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. 13.
Zenith Intl.’s 2013 Global Bottled Water Congress will also take place Nov. 12 to 14 in Nashville. Under the theme "force of nature," the event is designed for industry leaders, suppliers, customers and analysts to gain a complete overview of the latest trends and thinking across all continents from top companies in each region, with extensive time for informal networking and discussion.
