Eastern Europe's Largest Coffee Exhibition

Coffeebiz 2002 will be held November 8 -11, 2002 in Athens, Greece. CoffeeNet, the only Greek coffee magazine, and HELEXPO, the leading exhibition planner in Greece, will organize the event with support from the SCAE (Specialty Coffee Association of Europe).

Last year's CoffeeBiz exhibition was an unprecedented success. Participants agreed that the event was the largest and most successful tradeshow ever in the Balkan countries.

The goal of CoffeeBiz 2002 is to offer current and concise information to those involved in the Balkan specialty coffee industry. All sectors of the industry will be represented, and Greek importers, roasters, and retailers will display their products. Visitors will find a variety of green and roasted coffee, brewing, roasting, and packaging equipment, and accessories. Many businesses in eastern Europe have shown immense interest in participating at CoffeeBiz 2002.

Last year more than 6,000 entrepreneurs visited the exhibition. Most were owners of coffee shops and coffee bars, hotels and restaurants, but many attendees were coffee roasters and importers.

CoffeeBiz 2002 will be held in a state-of-the art convention facility, and speakers from the international arena and from the Greek coffee market will make presentations. The 2nd Hellenic Barista Competition will also be a major attraction.

The event will be sponsored several major Greek coffee companies. CoffeeNet will also implement a major media campaign to publicize the event.

See you in Athens in November!
