The show is the product of extensive research, including a major industry-wide survey. Buyers and suppliers alike were unanimous in their support of a trade-only event 100% focused on the business of coffee.
Annie Swift, managing director, European Coffee Expo, said: “The event is a first in the UK. It is exclusively for those responsible for purchasing coffee and tea, soft drinks and related products and equipment, soft drinks and accessories. It covers all the significant sectors where coffee is served – cafes, casual dining, fast food, restaurants, hotels, pubs, leisure, commercial offices, retail, contract caterers, travel and more. As well as visitors from the artisan coffee and café sectors, all the other major serious corporate coffee buyers will be in attendance.”
In addition to a large exhibition featuring innovative suppliers of equipment, beans, teas, flavours, soft drinks and serving apparatus, European Coffee Expo will also offer a comprehensive conference programme, demonstrations and workshops and an innovation trail.
