Coffee lovers, follow your noses! Navy Pier will soon be welcoming Coffee Fest to the shores of Lake Michigan and if you’re an industry member, this is one show you definitely won’t want to miss! On June 7-8, spend time with fellow coffee-enthusiasts and some of the nation’s greatest brewers and exhibitors!
Coffee Fest has been celebrating the love of one of the country’s favorite beverages long before it was a “hot” thing. In 1992, Coffee Fest held its first annual coffee festival in Seattle, bringing together some of the nation’s most respected coffee professionals. After several years of successful events, the Fest’s founders shifted their focus towards specialty coffee blends, gourmet tea, and alternative beverages for their first ever retail trade show in 1998.
Today, Coffee Fest produces three trade shows annually in New York, Chicago, and Seattle—see, we’re in great company! With a mission to help attendees build and refine their specialty coffee businesses, Coffee Fest has become the industry’s top-performing show with competition, onsite barista certification, products for sale, and classes and workshops galore!
