Coffee Business Forum 2021

``Coffee shops after the market reopening``

The first Coffee Business Forum titled “Coffee shops after the market reopening” will take place on Friday 28 May 2021. The event is organized by ethosEVENTS, the portal coffeemag.gr and Coffee+Brunch magazine through LiveOn, ethosGROUP’s integrated digital technology on business communication, which brings together people from all over Greece and abroad, enabling them to participate in the event from the comfort and safety of their homes.  

ethosEVENTS, always at the forefront of new technologies with innovative actions and initiatives, aims at establishing this event as an institution in the coffee sector, by offering professionals and entrepreneurs involved in the coffee market and other market sectors a platform where they will be able to exchange opinions, discuss and make their own suggestions. The main objective of this event is to encourage new partnerships and offer participants various business opportunities through networking.

Despite that the difficult times of the pandemic are not yet behind us, ethosEVENTS organizes the Coffee Business Forum 2021 and invites professionals involved in the coffee shop sector as well as institutional and government representatives, to define the new landscape and share their thoughts and ideas for the future, with a single common objective: to boost the coffee market, which has undergone a dramatic transformation and suffered a serious blow in the last months due to the coronavirus.

Program coordinator: Mr. Kostas Kaperonis, Sales Director, Coffee Business and Mrs. Katerina Theodoropoulou, Journalist.

Closed Workshops

During the works of the Coffee Business Forum 2021, participants will have the opportunity to attend a Closed (Digital) Workshop (duration of 1,5 to 2 hours) where companies’ executives will meet with government officials and representatives of institutional organizations. The agenda of the workshop will include presentations and targeted discussions on specific topics, with the participation of the speakers, the Coordinator and Sponsors’ executives.

Participation in the workshops will be free of charge for representatives of Conference Sponsors (Distinguished Corporate Participation, Bronze, Silver, Gold Sponsors) according to the benefits of their chosen sponsorship program.

Β2Β Μeetings

In addition, participants will have the option to take part in scheduled digital B2B Meetings with the attendees of the Conference, of a maximum duration of 15 minutes. The meetings will take place in the secure and private environment of LiveOn, ethosGROUP’s integrated digital technology for business communication. The meetings will be organized in parallel with the works of the main forum, taking into account the availability of the Sponsors’ Executives.

The main objective of the Β2Β Meetings is to offer reliable and accurate information by professionals of the coffee sector as well as to create invaluable networking opportunities.

PANEL I: “Incentives and government initiatives for the reinforcement of the coffee sector and coffee shop businesses”

In the first panel, politicians and representatives of government and economic institutions will share their views and exchange opinions on the future of the coffee sector, the hurdles it will have to surpass and the steps that need to be concluded to help businesses recover. The participants will review the action taken by the government and institutional authorities to support entrepreneurs during the market lock-down, when the coffee shop sector suffered a major hit. In addition, they will evaluate the new situation, from the first days of the pandemic until now, and they will discuss the incentives and overall support offered for the re-opening of coffee businesses as well as other burning issues, such as VAT reduction and excise duties.

Indicative discussion topics:

  • Economic support during the lock-down
  • The government’s new plans for the support of coffee shops
  • Subsidies
  • VAT
  • Excise duties
  • Taxation-related measures – tax reliefs

PANEL II: “The new protocols for the reopening of coffee shops and the post-pandemic reality”

This panel will discuss the new reality and the problems brought by the corona-virus and its impact on the economy and society, which professionals of the coffee sector face on a daily basis. The participants will analyze proposals and ideas for the return of coffee shops to normality, always taking into consideration the protective measures that will have to be applied. The main focus will be on the lessons taught by the difficult times of the pandemic, successful practices and innovations and the trends that are here to stay, such as delivery and take-away.

Indicative discussion topics:

  • How difficult is it for a coffee shop to survive during a pandemic?
  • Personnel education and behavioral training
  • Compliance with protective measures
  • Profitable practices and innovations developed during the pandemic which are here to stay
  • Delivery and take-away: adaptation to the new reality

PANEL IIΙ: “The future of coffee businesses: strategies – investments – success stories”

After the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, coffee sales in super markets went up as most people stayed in their homes. At the same time, consumers started experimenting with new coffee varieties and coffee capsules, when making their own coffee in their kitchens. Apart from the above topics and the presentations of relevant data, this panel will place emphasis on companies’ investment plans and their goals for the immediate future. This session is an ideal opportunity for companies to present and develop their business strategies as well as start a conversation on environment protection and sustainable development.

Indicative discussion topics:

  • How did the pandemic lead to an increase in coffee sales in super markets and domestic consumption in general?
  • What investments will coffee companies focus on?
  • What will their strategies be?
  • Coffee businesses’ objectives and focus.
  • How does the rise in the demand of coffee products affect environmental sustainability? What can we do to protect the ecosystem?

PANEL IV: “How will coffee suppliers deal with the new market reality? Plans – Goals – Investments”

Lockdowns and self-isolation led people to consuming more coffee at home and  purchasing more advanced coffee machines and high-quality or even professional products-raw materials (such as chocolate beverages, bottled water or coffee filters, which play a key role in the end result). Consequently, big coffee companies started investing more in household equipment, while water and soft-drinks companies and suppliers drew up new strategic plans in anticipation of consumers’ needs. In this session, participants will be able to assess the results of the previous term and elaborate on future goals.

Indicative discussion topics:

  • How did the pandemic lead to an increase in sales of household equipment?
  • What investments will coffee equipment companies make?
  • How did the pandemic affect suppliers?
  • What policies and strategies will companies and professionals of the coffee sector apply in the near future?
