If you’re anywhere near New York City, we suggest you drop what you’re doing and head over to the Javits Center in New York City to catch Coffee Fest, the best show for indie retailers we know.
Coffee Fest focuses on products and services for the cafe retailer more than any other shows we know, and its walkable floor, plus fun and interesting competitions and events that are held alongside the trade show, always makes for a weekend of discovery and inspiration.
The show hours are 12–5 p.m. today and Saturday, and 12–4 p.m. on Sunday. Some not to miss Coffee Fest action:
• The New World Latte Art Championship! This competition is the longest running, most exciting competition that Coffee Fest hosts all weekend. It takes place in front of the entrance to the trade show in the mornings of all three days of Coffee Fest.
• Visit Barista Magazine’s booth #109 to sign up for a new subscription, renew your existing subscription, or just say hi! Barista Magazine’s publisher, Kenneth Olson, will be on hand the entire show to answer any questions you have.
• Go to the Opening Night party! Free to all Coffee Fest attendees. Go here for more information.
Cost is $30 per person. You can register online by going here, or do it in person at the event. See you there!
