Know-how . Business . Networking

It is time for the 22nd Edition of The Santos International Coffee Seminar. Hosted by The Santos Commerce Association and organized by its Coffee Exporter’s Sectional Chamber the event will be held on May 9th and 10th 2018, in Guarujá, São Paulo.

This is yet another milestone in the 147 year history of the oldest State of São Paulo association of its kind.

As with previous events, The Santos Commerce Association aims to value all professionals in the coffee business and bring market players together around common goals, expose them to current trends and points of view, discuss policies and assess new technologies.

Even with its challenging political and financial situation, Brazil remains strong and reliable.

Brazilian producers are continuously increasing their importance and share in the world coffee market. The Seminar is thus a great opportunity to explore and do new business.

This year’s theme is: “Breaking Records”.

Growers, distributors, traders, exporters, importers, roasters, are already encouraged to sign up for the event.

Given the last events’ success we have chosen to keep the venue and programing at the luxurious and modern Hotel Sofitel Jequitimar set on enchanting Pernambuco Beach, in Guarujá.

We look forward to seeing you here!

Registration sign-in begins at 11:00 hrs. on May 9th at the event’s check-in desk.

The opening ceremony will be held on May 9th at 14:00 hrs. at the Sofitel Jequitimar Conventional Center Auditorium. After the opening and the first round of presentations, a fun and relaxing cocktail party will be served at 18:30 hrs. by the oceanfront pool.

On May 10th, the technical program will run from 09:00 to 13:00 hrs. The afternoon has been kept open for business meetings and networking.

The Closing Dinner will be held on the 10th at 19.30 hrs. and, as always, will allow for a great time. We look forward to a fun get together among friends in a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.

We are sure that we will see you there!
