Re:Co Speciality Coffee Symposium 2022
Re:co (Regarding: coffee) is a unique event designed for high-level discussion, leading innovation and strategy development for those passionate and influential in the world of specialty coffee.
Through engaging discussions, interactive experiences and a gathering of speakers from around the world, Re:co looks at all aspects of the specialty coffee market — from the challenges we face to solutions we can create to approaches for growth and development through collaborative conversations.
Re:co’s audience are those looking to gain insight into the specialty coffee market and supply chain, as well as those looking to be challenged and inspired by their industry. It is an essential event for business leaders who believe that collaborative work and discussion can benefit all involved.
Over the past 30 years, the concurrent internet-led waves of coffee and globalization have had a profound impact on our coffee consumption habits. The coffee market has increased by more than 60% over the past two decades, driven by an increase in domestic consumption and emerging markets, leading our preferences to not only shift, but fragment.
This year’s Re:co Symposium program will revisit our basic assumptions about specialty coffee and its consumers through the lens of increasing fragmentation and the accompanying opportunities it brings to redress market dynamics: What is specialty coffee? Who is consuming it, and how? What attributes are becoming increasingly valuable?
Attendees will come together for plenary sessions designed to address these questions, and their implications for the future of our industry, before separating into their choice of breakout sessions, where they’ll have the chance to focus on their specific interests across lectures, question-driven discussion groups, structured networking, and sensory experiences.
