Combined Water, Vending Show Is In Mickey’s Wheelhouse
For the third consecutive year, the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) and the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) will hold its conferences during the same dates and in the same venue, allowing attendees to experience a higher level of networking through a wider variety of exhibitors and seminars. In 2013 joint attendance reached 1,000 registrants, an increase over 2012, the first year the 2 groups mingled their shows.
“Many bottled water companies, particularly those in the home & office delivery (HOD) 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 exposure to a broader range of products and services, and increased networking opportunities,” said Joe Doss, IBWA President & CEO.
“The joint trade show is a perfect opportunity for us because we have a high market share within both industries, and we’re seeing significant interest in our vending bodies from both segments,” says Tom Arland, VP Sales, Beverage & Engineered Vehicles. Tom will be hosting the Mickey exhibit with Jim Hiatt, Mickey’s VP, Van & Vending Sales, at the combined IBWA/NAMA trade show on Wednesday, November 12 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, TX.
