The NAMA Show 2023 will take place May 10-12, 2023 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
NAMA stands for the National Automatic Merchandising Association. NAMA is the national trade association for the entire convenience services industry, including the food and refreshment vending, coffee service and foodservice management industries, including on-site, commissary, catering, micro markets, pantry and unattended retail. Our membership is comprised of service companies, equipment manufacturers and suppliers of products and services to operating service companies.
You do not need to be a member of NAMA to attend, although pricing is considerably lower for members. Anyone involved in the coffee service, micro market, pantry, vending and unattended industries are welcome to attend The NAMA Show.
To receive the member rate, your company's NAMA membership must be paid through May 12, 2023. If you register as a member but your company's membership expires before May 12, 2023, you will be contacted to renew your membership or you will be charged the balance for the non-member rate at badge pick-up. Email [email protected] for assistance with registration or to renew your membership.
Yes, the pricing will be the same for spouses as it is for the member / non-member attendee.
