All eyes will be on Vietnam next month as the country is set to host its first ever-International Café Show.
The event – which will take place at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center in Ho Chi Minh City – will take place during the second week of May and is being organised by the Seoul-based group Exporum Inc.
It is hoped that the show will provide a platform for the coffee in Vietnam to display its wares, attracting new business and investment into all areas of the industry, including farming and retail.
“The value of Vietnamese coffee has not been fully recognised, despite the country’s status as the world’s second-largest producer,” said Danny Hyundae Shin, Exporum’s CEO.
“[The] Vietnam International Café Show, however, will be a gathering place for domestic coffee growers and global business people and expand the country’s whole transaction scale.”
Alongside displays, seminars and a plethora of stalls, the Vietnam Café Show will play host to the Vietnam National Barista Championships.
