We hope you will join SCAJ2022 to experience the excellence of specialty coffee!
The Specialty Coffee Association of Japan would like to warmly welcome you to the SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition 2022 (SCAJ2022). We would also like to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support of our organization's mission and events.The SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition is our largest annual event and we hope that this year's SCAJ2022 can once again offer all participants opportunities for exciting interactions and access to the latest information on specialty coffee through various exhibits, seminars, and competitions.
SCAJ2021, which was held last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, turned out to be successful and well-received despite the various safety restrictions which were in place. We were very grateful and delighted to see that specialty coffee and its culture of appreciation could overcome the challenges of the pandemic.
As the world is trying to move towards the normalization of economic activities following the COVID-19 pandemic, the current events unfolding in Europe are threatening world peace and making it difficult for us to stay optimistic about the future. Nevertheless, this year's SCAJ2022 will be held under the theme of "Come Join the Specialty Coffee Community" on a similar scale and layout as past events held prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Finally, the SCAJ would like to thank the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the embassies of various coffee producing countries for their kind and invaluable support. We would also like to sincerely thank the exhibitors, sponsors, and all those who make this year's event possible.
Specialty Coffee Association Japan
Thank you very much for your consistent support.Thanks to you, SCAJ welcomed its 19th anniversary and has started preparing for its 17th exhibition this year.
Despite COVID-19, 19,344 people visited our previous exhibition "SCAJ2021" over the span of three days. As it was difficult to travel internationally, coffee manufacturers remotely conducted seminars from where they were located and we were able to deliver the latest locality information while receiving great amounts of support from related parties in Japan as well. In this manner, even with the absence of many participants from other countries that would have usually been present, we are proud to say that it was an extremely exciting and fulfilling exhibition.
Taking into account our experience of the previous exhibition, the theme for this year’s exhibition "SCAJ2022" is "Come Join the Specialty Coffee Community". People who love specialty coffee will overcome the struggles of COVID-19 and gather at this event from all over the world and Japan. We hope that those who have been patrons of SCAJ for a long time and those who are participating for the first time will meet at this event as a single community that loves specialty coffee and that various synergies will blossom. For these three days, we will also strive to promptly deliver the latest information from the specialty coffee industry that is steadily progressing all over the world even now and allow participants to once again recognize and make new discoveries about the wonder, charms, and diversity of specialty coffee.
It would greatly delight us if many people would visit "SCAJ2022" to experience the greatness of specialty coffee that surprises and moves people all around the world.
