The Specialty Coffee Association’s World of Coffee 2021 event will take place in Athens, Greece.
The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) has confirmed a partnership with the Athens Metropolitan Expo to host World of Coffee in the Greek capital in June 2021. The event will take place 24-26 June 2021.
Traveling to a different European city each June, World of Coffee draws a loyal audience from the global specialty coffee community, more than 80 per cent of whom return every year.
The SCA said the event has more than tripled in size and stature over the last six years, growing from 3,000 visitors and 45 exhibitors to over 11,000 visitors and 240 exhibitors in 2019.
The city of Warsaw, Poland will host the popular trade show in June 2020.
“The volunteers and staff of the SCA who make World of Coffee possible are delighted to return to Greece in 2021,” said SCA CEO Yannis Apostolopoulos.
“Greece is a country with a thriving specialty coffee community, as exemplified in the work and activities of the volunteers who run the SCA Greece Chapter.
“We look forward to working with the Athens Metropolitan Expo to execute a world-class event and welcome the global specialty community to Athens.”
World of Coffee Athens will feature the 2021 World Barista Championship, World Cezve/Ibrik Championship, and World Cup Tasters Championship.
The competitions are organized by World Coffee Events, the competition event management organization of the SCA.
More information on World of Coffee Athens and the competitions will be available in June 2020 at worldofcoffee.org.
