The producers of Coffee Fest have announced the debut of a new education program called the Food & Beverage Academy at the upcoming Coffee Fest New York show.
Produced by Clarion Events, Coffee Fest New York is being held in conjunction with another major Clarion production, the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York.
With both shows sharing the floor, so to speak, the new Food & Beverage Academy is designed to attract a range of owners and operators, from single-location independents to specialty coffee chains, according to the group.
The co-located show takes place March 6-8 at the Javits Center in Manhattan.
“There is a real value in the colocation of these two trade shows and conferences,” Rita Ugianskis, Vice President of Clarion Events in the Food & Beverage Group, said in an announcement of the new program. “We look forward to welcoming everyone in the hospitality industry in the tri-state region to our new Food & Beverage Academy, which will offer education sessions for restaurant, foodservice, specialty beverage and cafe owners.”
