The countdown begins for the 17th ASEAN Café Show 2023, aimed at boosting the coffee, tea, beverage, bakery, ice cream, and chocolate industries while stimulating the country’s economy, with anticipated revenue exceeding 500 million baht.
Mr. Kavin Kittiboonya, the president of Kavin Intertrade, the show organizer, stated that the show is scheduled for October 26-29 at BITEC, Bangkok, under the concept of “One-Stop Café Solution.”
Mr. Kavin mentioned that the exhibition has welcomed almost 250 exhibitors from Thailand, China, Taiwan, and Singapore, covering more than 300 booths on a 10,000- square-meter space, a 100% increase from the previous year.
He also mentioned that more than 8,000 cutting-edge products from around the world will be showcased by exhibitors to owners, entrepreneurs, decision-makers of coffee, bakery, ice cream shops, as well as new investors wishing to enter this lucrative market. Visitors will have a firsthand experience to discover new trends and technological advancements and place orders.
The president further stated that the coffee, bakery, and ice cream sectors remain among the rising stars of 2023, with the coffee business valued at approximately 64,000 million baht and the bakery market valued at about 38,000 million baht. “The continued economic growth, a surge in tourism, increased consumer spending, and evolving preferences among the younger generation, who are increasingly opting to discover unique cafes for socializing and sharing their café experiences on social media, are driving the growth of these two sectors,” Mr. Kavin stated.
The president added that the timing of the show is quite ripe as the show days coincide with the high season of the industry, and he anticipated around 25,000 visitors from 40 countries to visit the show, with more than 500 million baht in sales to be generated during the four-day event.
