BENGALURU (India) – From September 25-28, the fifth edition of the World Coffee Conference will take place in Bengaluru, for the first time in India, inside the striking Banaluru Palace: the International Coffee Organization has put together the 2023 edition, in collaboration with the Indian Minister of Trade and Industry, the Government of Karnataka and the Coffee Board of India.
The 2023 event will be the gathering of representatives from the 75 member states of the ICO, and among them most of the world’s coffee-producing countries will gather in India. Along with representatives from producers, governments, the private sector, as well as development partners and other key players.
It has now been 22 years since the first edition took place in 2001 in London: since then, the World Coffee Conference has been held in various locations around the world, from Brazil in 2005 to Guatemala in 2010 and Ethiopia in 2016.
At the World Coffee Conference, a busy schedule
Between seminars, workshops, competitions, and exhibitions, visitors will be able to take stock of key aspects to interpret future trends in the supply chain. The topics covered will be hot ones: from the circular economy to generative agriculture, from new market trends to the technical innovations available to move forward together from the fields to the final cup.
The 4-day WCC 2023 event will bring together leaders and decision makers from more than 80 countries.
World Coffee Conference 2023 on current events
Not surprisingly, sustainability and possible approaches to be applied along the coffee supply chain will be the focus of the World Coffee Conference in September: the various speakers will share their knowledge of the best practices and techniques available to boost regenerative agriculture and consequently the living conditions and well-being of the farmers themselves.
An eye will go with respect to changes in the regulatory and financial framework.
Three days of discussions
The conference will be the ideal platform to discuss, debate and collaborate to build a coffee industry that is sustainable, from bean to cup. The event will include a 3-day conference and B2B exhibition, skills development workshops, a global CEO conclave, and networking events.
