Specialty coffee industry professionals from around the world will gather at BEXCO, Busan, from May 1-4, 2024, for the inaugural World of Coffee in Asia. This event will also feature the 2024 World Barista Championship, bringing together top baristas from across the globe. The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) is working with host Busan Metropolitan City and organizer EXPORUM, with support of the 2024 Portrait Country, Indonesia, to debut World of Coffee in Busan, marking a significant milestone for the Asian coffee community. Over 20,000 global attendees, including 12,000 industry professionals from 70+ countries, are expected to visit BEXCO, anticipating contributions not only to the event but also to local economic activation.

At the 'World of Coffee 2024,' more than 280 domestic and international coffee companies will participate, showcasing coffee-related products, technologies, and services, including the Roaster Village exhibition to introduce domestic and international roastery cafes and brands. Additionally, activities such as networking with global coffee enthusiasts at the 'SCA Community Lounge,' experiencing and evaluating various domestic and international coffees in the 'Cupping Room,' and engaging in seminars to experience and promote new coffee cultures will be conducted, creating a platform for diverse experiences and trends representing the global coffee event.

The World Barista Championship will return to Korea after seven years where it was last held at Cafe Show Seoul. Competitors demonstrate their expertise in crafting innovative espresso-based drinks across the espresso, milk, and signature beverage courses, with the cutting-edge approaches and tools used on stage having extensive and enduring impacts on the industry.
