2009 SCAA Show Info

SCAA’s 21st Annual Exposition, April 16-19
Atlanta, Georgia, Georgia World Congress Center
New Schedule: Starts Thursday, Ends Sunday

Highlights for The Specialty Coffee Event of 2009:

· New price of $95!
· All lectures will be equipped with simultaneous interpretation in Spanish.
· The World Barista Championship will be held on site, beginning Thursday, April 16 and running through Sunday, April 19.
· The show floor will house the 1st Annual U.S. Cuptasting Championship, a competition for coffee cuppers, testing their differentiation skills.
· A new fellowship program is being introduced to support small-scale coffee farmers who may not otherwise be able to attend the event.

The new price seems great. I’m interested in seeing the lab schedule as well. It says the WBC will at the event, so I wonder when the USBC is going to be held. This is basically all the information from the SCAA Conference website. Here’s the link though in case you want to check it out for yourself.
