The industry day sessions on Thursday and Friday (23-24 September) will feature discussions, demonstrations and workshops revolving around entrepreneurship, sustainability, inclusivity and innovation designed to inspire and spark lively debate.
This year’s Lab sessions include a live demonstration with celebrity chef Jason Atherton, talks around the espresso machines of the future, and roundtables addressing racial and gender equality, diversity, and representation in the UK coffee and hospitality sector.
Jeffrey Young, CEO, Allegra Group, will commence this year's Lab programme, with a talk exploring changing consumer expectations, global megatrends, and key learnings from World Coffee Portal's latest research on the UK branded coffee shop market.
The sessions will also see industry experts investigate how careers in coffee have evolved during the pandemic, as well as a conversation with B Corp to discuss the future of sustainability in the coffee industry.
With more than 30,000 coffee enthusiasts, professional baristas, coffee shop owners and senior decision-makers expected to attend, The London Coffee Festival provides a unique platform for networking, education and experiencing the very best of the UK capital's world-renowned coffee culture.
