A Rising Coffee Market
Korea’s coffee industry has doubled over the past seven years, seeing an explosion in both imports and consumption while catapulting Korea to its place as the 11th largest coffee market in the world. South Koreans are now among the top global consumers of coffee, and the country is home to over 23,000 coffee shops. With the vast majority of Korea’s coffee imported from overseas and the emergence of a taste for new varieties of hot and cold beverages, the Korean coffee industry is certainly an exciting place to be. Along with the massive expansion of Korea’s coffee market, Coffee Expo Seoul has increased its size in years from its first launch in 2012. Coffee Expo Seoul is expecting 400 exhibitors in its next edition.
Coffee Expo Seoul is the biggest coffee exhibition held in the first half of the year. Through the collaboration between the leading exhibition organizer, Coex, and the well-established coffee association, Korean Coffee Association(KCA), Coffee Expo Seoul can bring together the best in the coffee and coffee-related products from around the globe while providing a business platform to all the major coffee players in the coffee industry.
