After a four year extended break, the biennial TriestEspresso Expo is returning to the Italian coffee mecca of Trieste in 2022.
The business-to-business trade show focused on all aspects of the espresso industry last drew approximately 13,000 visitors to the Northeastern Italian city in 2018, according to the organizers.
Supported by by the marketing agency of the Venezia Giulia Chamber of Commerce in coordination with the Associazione Caffé Trieste, the event is expected to feature some 200 exhibitors when it returns this Oct. 27-29.

Featuring an expo floor as well as educational seminars and workshops, the show will be taking place at the brand new Trieste Convention and Exhibition Center, in the city’s Porto Vecchio (old port) district.
The port-adjacent location bears some historical and cultural significance, too, given Trieste’s outsized significance as a European port city for coffee since its establishment as a tax-free port under Austro-Hungarian rule in the 1700s.
This will mark the 10th occasion of the TriestEspresso fair.
