The Specialty Coffee Association has announced that the 2022 World of Coffee trade show, initially planned in Warsaw, will be moving to Milan, Italy.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has forced thousands of Ukrainians to seek refuge in Poland, including at the PTAK convention centre where World of Coffee was scheduled to take place.
With the event moving to a new location in Milan, the SCA says it remains committed to donating 100% of the revenue from World of Coffee ticket sales to Ukrainian coffee businesses and professionals.
World of Coffee + World Coffee Championships: Milan, 23-25 June 2022
While the circumstances are regrettable, the SCA says it looks forward to bringing World of Coffee back to Italy, the birthplace of the espresso. This will be the first time World of Coffee travels to Milan, and the SCA expresses its excitement to partner with the Milano Convention Center, a modern venue in the heart of the city. The five World Coffee Championships—Latte Art, Coffee in Good Spirits, Cup Tasters, Cezve/Ibrik, and Roasting—will also be held in Milan from 23-25 June. Coffee professionals from around the globe can look forward to everything Milan has to offer and the hospitality of the local coffee community represented by the SCA Italy Chapter.
