The International Coffee & Tea Festival (ICTF), organised by International Conferences & Exhibitions (IC&E) returns from 11 to 13 November 2015. It is the only dedicated trade event for the coffee and tea industry in the Middle East, supported by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) and World Coffee Events (WCE).
Last year, ICTF drew in over 7,100 visitors from the GCC, the broader Middle East, the Levant region, North and South Africa, the Caspian region, the Indian sub-continent, and other surrounding regions. Visitors to the show ranged from qualified buyers and industry professionals to existing and aspiring café owners, HORECA and hospitality professionals, F&B buyers and specifiers as well as general consumers.
The Festival included a Coffee & Tea B2B Exhibition, the Espresso + Brew Bar, SCAA Certified Coffee Training Workshops, National-Level UAE Coffee Championships and the World Barista Championship (WBC) ALL STARS.
