The Expo is conceptualized to highlight the Tea & Coffee sectors through the Trade fair route otherwise getting lost in a clutter of Food and Food related shows. This annual event is designed not only to open business avenues for exhibitors and buyers but also to bring forth issues and policy initiatives related to the Hot Beverage segment. The biggest need of the hour is to provide this segment an organized & focused platform from where it is possible to exchange ideas and interact with other players / buyers and stakeholders. Over next 5 years India’s Tea & Coffee consumption will grow manifold making it paramount to showcase India’s leadership in hot beverage sector.
