World of Coffee postponed until October 2020

Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) has announced its agreement with PTAK Warsaw Expo to postpone the World of Coffee event in Poland to 15-17 October 2020, in response to the global Covid-19 outbreak.

In a statement from Chief Executive Officer, Yannis Apostolopoulos, the SCA elaborated on the postponement:

“We have informed all of our exhibitors and visitors via email, and our exhibitions team will be sharing more information next week. We’d like to thank the team at PTAK for their help in rescheduling our event and demonstrating their commitment to the health of our community.

“World of Coffee Warsaw will continue to host the 2020 World Coffee Roasting, Latte Art, Coffee in Good Spirits, and Cup Tasters Championships as well as the Cezve/Ibrik Championship. These competitions will be postponed to the new October 15–17 dates, with the World Coffee Events team continuing to work with competitors, judges, and licensed WCE Competition Bodies to address the challenges that Covid-19 presents. Any competitors, volunteers, or judges who anticipate issues participating during the new dates should get in contact with WCE directly by emailing [email protected].

“We send a sincere thank you to all of our partners, sponsors, exhibitors, attendees, and volunteers for their patience as we work to adapt and find solutions to the rapidly changing landscape of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Apostolopoulos also commented that the SCA continues to review options for postponing the Re:co Symposium and the Specialty Coffee Expo.
