Are you a decision-maker for a restaurant, foodservice provider or retailer?  If so, you may be eligible for our exclusive Five Star Buyer! 

Why should I participate in the buyer programs at Coffee Fest? (what’s in it for me?)

The Five Star Program delivers perks and privileges making your show experience more effective and efficient.  Find your newest suppliers before leaving home with our exclusive online Exhibitor portal.  Don’t miss your “must see” suppliers by using our meeting scheduling tool.  Looking for a specific product or service?  Let our Five Star Buyer Manager point you in the direction of the Exhibitors who can solve your business needs.  Prefer a small group demo?  Get on the show floor early and participate in one of our sponsored Five Star sessions – see products in action in these ½ hour sessions. 

How much time will participation take?

Our Five Star Club is designed to SAVE you time!  Search our online portal to uncover new products before the show.  Connect with the suppliers you most want to see and schedule meetings.  Join a Five Star session, get on the show floor early and grab a 30 minute product demonstration!

Will exhibitors automatically get my contact information after the presentations?

Once a Five Star Buyer session has been completed, your contact information is shared with the sponsor.
