The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) and the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) will conduct their two conferences during the same dates at the same location.  The 2012 IBWA Annual Business Conference and Tabletop Trade Show will be Nov. 12-16, and the 2012 NAMA CoffeeTea&Water event will be Nov. 13-15.  Both conferences will be at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Orleans.

“Many bottled water companies, particularly those in the home and office delivery business, also offer coffee and tea to their customers. Co-locating the IBWA and NAMA conferences will enable attendees and exhibitors to achieve a greater return on their investment by providing expanded educational programming, exposure to a broader range of products and services, and increased networking opportunities,” said IBWA President and Chief Executive Officer Joe Doss in a statement.

IBWA and NAMA educational seminars, business sessions and networking events will take place throughout the meeting dates, and the combined IBWA and NAMA trade show will be Nov. 14.
