Who should attend World Coffee Championships 2022?

World Coffee Championships 2022 or World Barista Championship (WBC) leads the international coffee competition. This competition comprises of more than 50 champion competitors produced annually by World Coffee Events (WCE). Each competitor prepares 4 espressos, 4 milk drinks, and 4 original signature drinks to exacting standards in a 15-minute performance set to music.

WBC focuses on promoting excellence in coffee, advancing the barista profession while engaging a worldwide audience. This competition stands as the culmination of local and regional events globally.  

Every participating certified WCE judge from around the world evaluates each performance depending on the taste, cleanliness, creativity, technical skill, and the overall presentation. The ever-popular signature beverage widens baristas’ imagination and the judges’ palates to incorporate a wealth of coffee knowledge into an expression of their individual tastes and experiences.

Fifteen competitors with the highest scores from the first round will advance to the semifinal round together with the wild-card winner from the Team Competition. Then, the remaining six competitors in the semifinal round will advance to the finals. From there, one winner will be entitled as the World Barista Champion.

MICE offers a range of packages from shell schemes to space only sites.

Is 'shell scheme' better than 'space only' stand?

Space only packages are intentionally bought to build a custom stand. It does not include flooring, power, lighting, or furniture. At a minimum, exhibitors interested in ‘space only’ package must lay carpet or raised floor, and add a neat, enclosed back wall.

If you are interested in ordering furniture, the show builder Exponet will get in touch with you closer to MICE to arrange your desired furniture and power orders.

On the other hand, ‘shell scheme’ stand works like a booth set-up that comes with walls, basic power and lighting, carpet, and a front fascia with your business name.

Is insurance for the exhibit needed?

Every exhibitor must acquire Public Liability Cover as listed in the manual. The coverage must extend from the start of the bump in period to the end of the bump out period. The Certificate of Currency must be provided endorsing and noting the interest of the Event Organisers, Prime Creative Media Pty.Ltd 11-15 Buckhurst Street, South Melbourne, Victoria 3205, Australia (ABN 51 127 239 212), for the said period.
