CHICAGO -- Registration is now open for the National Automatic Merchandising Association's 2016 Coffee Tea & Water conference, taking place Nov. 8-10 (Tuesday-Thursday) at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Conference Center in Nashville, TN.

CTW will offer networking opportunities and educational sessions, along with an all-day look at the "Workplace Café of Today." The Workplace Café event includes an operator-led roundtable and takes place on Thursday, Nov. 10.

"Today's consumers want their breakrooms to be a destination, bringing to life the feeling of a café or coffeehouse," said NAMA vice-president of information services Chip Potter. "With this relevant lineup focused on the areas of menu, design, branding and trends, operators will be armed with the tools to create an exceptional workplace café."

Other sessions will tackle small business management, equipment and technology, Energy Star standards, cold brew trends, and Fair Trade and organic coffee.

The NAMA Foundation will hold its golf outing on Monday, Nov. 7, at 12:30 p.m. CTW's Coffee 101 program takes place on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Both of these programs require additional fees.

Rounding out 2016's CTW program is a Tuesday "election night" reception featuring television screens with ongoing reports from the presidential election. The second annual WIN Fun Run takes place on Wednesday morning.
