The Coffee Fest Five Star Key Buyer Club is designed to deliver high quality industry buyers to Coffee Fest Trade Shows. Five Star Key Buyer Club participants have the purchasing authority and budget to make key investment decisions for their companies. In addition, Key Buyer's will be making pre-scheduled one-to-one appointments with Coffee Fest exhibitors during the show. A significant investment has been made to develop this strategic buyer program to enhance the show experience and increase the return on your investment.

Coffee Fest's MATCH! Program is a customized meeting experience that connects exhibitors with hand-selected, vetted, decision-makers. The appointment-setting program is a business marketplace for restaurants, foodservice operators and retailers where authorized buyers and decision-makers have the opportunity to meet with food and beverage suppliers, service providers, equipment companies and other restaurant, foodservice and retail industry vendors. The program efficiently matches qualified buyers with vendors carrying the products they are looking to source.

Five Star Key Buyer Club members will enjoy exclusive perks, privileges and services including:
