EUROPEAN COFFEE EXPO 2018 is a true first in the UK as it’s entirely focused on the business of great coffee, tea, soft drinks and the equipment and accessories required to prepare and serve them.  Just that! No dishwashers. No ovens. No furniture. No interior design. No IT.  No sandwiches or rolls. And from an exhibitor perspective, no time wasters. It’s purely coffee and beverage trade buyers.

The show targets the whole ecosphere of buyers, sellers and intermediaries.  In addition to the artisan coffee and café sectors, thousands of major corporate buyers will be visiting from restaurants, pubs, hotels, fast food outlets, casual dining, contract caterers, retail, leisure, travel, forecourts, supermarkets, health and education and work spaces to name but a few.


In summary:

  • The only event that is 100% about coffee (and tea and other beverages)
  • It is a COFFEE show and not a café show!
  • Located at the UK’s premier venue in London – Olympia – to maximize attendance
  • Active support and guidance from dozens of top industry professionals
  • Conference and demonstration programme devoted to the business of coffee
  • Targets all senior corporate buyers not just the hipsters of East London
  • The organising team has proven success in launches around the world

The overarching aim is to improve your coffee and beverage customer service, increase sales and profitability!
