The seven championships produced by World Coffee Events (WCE) are able to continue and grow, thanks to the dedication and support of many partners throughout the global coffee community. Events hosts, those trade shows and supporting organizations that help produce championships, are some of our most important partners. In 2020 the World Barista Championship and World Brewers Cup head to Melbourne, and the Latte Art, Coffee in Good Spirits, Cup Tasters, and Cezve/Ibrik Championships will take place in Warsaw.

WCE is pleased to announce that we are now accepting proposals for hosting of the 2020 & 2021 World Coffee Roasting Championship events.

Hosting one or more coffee championship is a way to bring many of the coffee industry’s best and brightest to the host show, and it is a great way to increase global visibility through both in-person attendance and visibility on WCE’s far-reaching global media and digital channels. To find out more about what it takes to host these events and how you can submit a proposal, please read the relevant documents below.

Hosting Proposal Review Process:

Submissions will be reviewed in consideration of the host’s experience with conferences and exhibitions and ability to meet the requirements in these documents. The host city will be considered for its areas of attraction, receptiveness for the event, and benefit to the WCE’s global representation and outreach. Host cities will be evaluated for accessibility and inclusivity using the SCA Event Site Criteria, under the strictest category, a “global compulsory event.”
