Coffee, Tea & Water: CALL FOR SPEAKERS

Submission Deadline: June 22, 2020

Reunite, Rejuvenate, Reimagine

Please log in below or create a new account, then follow the steps to submit your presentation proposal(s) for Coffee, Tea & Water, November 9 - 11, 2020 in Orlando, FL. Please note that the safety of attendees, speakers, and staff is always a priority as NAMA plans CTW. COVID-19 is taken into consideration , and NAMA remains as proactive as circumstances allow. That said, while the in-person show is still planned with the presence of social distancing guidelines (meaning travel to Orlando is required for speakers), NAMA is strongly considering adding a virtual element to the show as well. With this in mind, sessions may be recorded to be shown online. Additionally, speakers may be required to present their live session multiple times, to separate audiences. We ask that you keep this in mind as you complete your submission.

Presentation proposals will be assessed based on the following criteria:

  • Current, innovative and relevant topic in the industry.
  • Well-organized session designed to meet the needs of this particular audience.
  • Presented by recognized leaders in the topic area.

Creative and innovative approaches to presenting sessions are encouraged. Rely on your day-to-day experiences as well as industry best practices, management successes, and innovative tools and techniques for topic ideas. Proposals will be accepted for sessions that range from basic to advanced levels, offering a full breadth of knowledge and information for the Coffee, Tea & Water attendees. We encourage you to submit more than one session proposal for consideration by the CTW Planning Committee.

Submissions should focus on at least one of the following industry topic areas:

  • Business Operations - OCS or Pantry Services
  • Sustainability
  • New Business
  • New Technology
  • Consumer/Workplace Trends
  • Business Management
  • Disruption/Innovation

All documentation must be submitted electronically. Hard copies will not be accepted. Submissions are due by June 22, 2020. The process of selecting submissions for CTW lasts about two months after the submission deadline.

You will receive an automatic confirmation email for each proposal you submit. If you do not receive a confirmation email or if you have any questions about the Call for Speakers, please contact elarson@namanow.org.
