World Coffee Leaders Forum greets its eighth opening this year.
In its beginning, World Coffee Leaders Forum started to empower Asian coffee market focusing on its great potential in both consuming and producing sectors.
Walking along with a growth of our regional market, World Coffee Leaders Forum focused on building a global platform that attracts coffee experts and professional across the world.
Each year, World Coffee Leaders Forum analyzes the trend of global and regional coffee markets, and evaluate paradigm shifts engaged in protecting sustainable coffee and community.
Also, in order to defend coffee producing environment from growing threats, such as climate change, coffee lust, labor issues, and so on, WCLF is striving to change the common perception by
connecting the coffee community with globally respected coffee experts and professionals.
Current economic system is being doubted and challenged constantly by a number of industries including that of coffee as over production and consumption are leading to
deteriorating scarcity of all different kinds of resources and environmental pollution. As a result, the idea of sharing brings attention to the people around the world.
Furthermore, the theory of “Sharing Economy” has been suggested to replace the traditional market economy. With this perspective, the sharing economy,
also known as access economy, peer-to-peer (P2P), or collaborative economy, will amplify the value of sharing, whether it is appreciated or not.
In today’s society, the practice of such economic model is being frequently observed also in our coffee community. World Coffee Leaders Forum,
as the No. 1 coffee knowledge-sharing platform, would like to call forward all people of the coffee industry, who are eager to have dynamic discussions
of new values highlighted in the era of sharing economy under the main theme of its 2019 forum: “Coffee People Share.” World Coffee Leader’s theme of
the year is to be examined in the outlook of technology integration, connectivity, transparency and openness.
World Coffee Leaders Forum Organizing Committee hope to inspire everyone who attend the event to take even a small leap and make a change for brighter coffee community.
