India’s Tea & Coffee Tradeshow Cancels Weeks Before Scheduled Opening

Last week, the 2nd World Tea & Coffee Expo™ set for February 6 – 8, 2014 in Mumbai, India, announced it was rescheduling the show. New dates have not been released.

World Tea & Coffee Expo is, according to organizers, India’s only international trade show dedicated to the tea and coffee sectors.

According to Sentinel Exhibitions Asia P Ltd., organizer of the show, the Chinese Spring Festival prevented many Chinese companies from exhibiting and “tough business conditions prevalent in India”, would have meant a scaled down show.

The inaugural show, held in February 2013, attracted 50 exhibitors and 3,500 attendees according to organizers.
