A tailored one-to-one meeting program will also provide mutually matched meetings, with each participant receiving a personalised itinerary of meetings that match their specific needs and requirements. The evening of the 27 November will see all guests congregate for the European Coffee Awards, which recognise excellence in the European coffee industry.
