Caffe Culture Show 2017
A few weeks ago we were back down at Olympia for the final trade show of the Spring – this time Caffe Culture at Olympia. Spring is always a bit of flurry with lots of trade shows – IFE in March, Farm & Deli Show in April and then Caffe Culture in May, so this one kind of wrapped ‘the season’.
I’m not a huge fan of Olympia generally, but I loved the hall that Caffe Culture was in, and it made for a really intimate and friendly show……a real focus on networking and on education.
There were two lecture theatres forums that had an amazing line up of speakers…….the kind of information that’s invaluable to the coffee industry players. And at two days it felt focussed and punchy timewise rather than spread over several days.
We had a really busy couple of days….and it had a different vibe and feel to the other two shows earlier in the year. Next year the show is moving back in the year to October, and the venue is changing to the Design Centre in Islington…..I hope they manage to keep the special atmosphere.
