Your Guide to the Coffee Industry Event of the Year

Where should I stay?

The NCA 2024 Convention will be held at the luxurious JW Marriott Nashville in Nashville, TN, and attendees are eligible for a discounted rate. Please note that availability is limited, so book early.


What should I bring?

Extra business cards! 

The NCA Convention is a business casual event. Keep in mind you'll be moving around between meetings and sessions - we recommend comfortable shoes and layers to accommodate conference room climate control. 

NCA Day of Service volunteers are encouraged to wear casual clothes and will need to wear flat, closed-toed shoes. 


What if I have a food allergy or other medical concerns?

Please contact the friendly NCA staff and we will be happy to help!

Do you offer a one-day pass?

Considering the format of the Annual Convention, we do not offer a one-day pass to attend a select day of the Convention.


How do I download an attendee list?

Who attends the NCA Convention?

The NCA Annual Convention continues to outshine other industry events by providing the highest level of networking, industry education, and engagement. Our event brings together a mix of nearly 800 diverse industry professionals across the sector. 80% of the prior in-person Convention registrants were presidents/chief executive officers, vice presidents, directors, or managers.


What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations must be received in writing by the end of business Thursday, January 25, 2024 to qualify for a refund. A $150 administration fee will be deducted. View all Convention policies here.


What health policies are in place? 

Any public space where other people are present holds an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. NCA is committed to following all current CDC guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as state, local, and corporate (hotel) requirements to be mindful of the safety of attendees, partners, guests, and staff.   You can find our complete health and safety policy, as well as all other Convention policies, here.
