The Re:co Symposium will return as a physical event at the Westin Boston Seaport in Massachusetts from 6 to 7 April.
Alongside the standard Re:co ticket option, participants can purhase a virtual ticket, allowing broader access to this year’s programming beyond those able to travel to Boston.
Re:co 2022 will address the most pressing topics facing the global coffee industry, blending expert speakers, sensory experiences, live discussion, networking, and community engagement opportunities.
This year’s program will revisit the basic assumptions about specialty coffee and its consumers through the lens of increasing fragmentation and the accompanying opportunities it brings to redress market dynamics. Session topics will include: In the face of climate change and advances in technology, what is specialty coffee? Who is consuming it, and how? Which attributes are becoming increasingly valuable?
Attendees will come together for plenary sessions designed to address these questions, and their implications for the future of the industry before separating into breakout sessions.
Here, guests will have the chance to focus on specific interests across lectures, question-driven discussion groups, structured networking, and sensory experiences.
Plenary speakers will include Dagmawi I. Eminetu, Noa Berger, and Will Frith, who deep-dive into three different emerging consumer markets with a focus on what more traditional markets could learn and adapt as their own landscape also shifts and fragments.
Other speakers will talk about the changing landscape of US government investment in coffee production, the anatomy of innovation, and new business models that put equity principles into practice.
