Café School

Take away ideas for your takeaway!

The café and food-to-go market has boomed over the last decade and now represents a $17 billion annual spend. It is an exciting sector with increasing sophistication and competition. 

The Café School is a popular stage with demonstrations running every hour. Free workshops help cafes and takeaways expand their menu and boost their bottom line. You can hear the speakers, learn about new trends and taste new products.
