London Coffee Festival 2024

The LCF was born out of love for the UK coffee scene.

Eleven years ago when London was rapidly becoming the most exciting coffee city on Earth, it was obvious what had to happen… a party had to be thrown, and The London Coffee Festival was born.

With over 7,000 visitors and 100 exhibitors in its first year, it became pretty clear that the festival was giving the coffee and creative community exactly what it wanted – and what London’s speciality coffee scene deserved, and it still does! This year 30,000 creative urbanites and industry professionals are expected to attend.

So what should you expect from the event? All the tastings your heart could desire? Check. Demonstrations from world-class baristas and interactive workshops? Of course. Live music, DJs, art exhibitions and coffee-based cocktails? Obviously.

Finding Coffee Shop Sites, with Rob Fay, Londonsuper

Finding a suitable site for your coffee business can be challenging. As well as identifying suitable locations, it’s necessary to navigate agents, landlords and solicitors as well as rent deposits, convanants and planning.

Rob Fay has over two decades experience working with some of the biggest names in property, and has worked with key people in the coffee industry. Plus, he’s part-owner of north London coffee shop Wildcard.

In this talk Rob provides analysis on the current state of the market, future trends and how proprietors can develop attractive propositions for landlords to help get the best locations and deals possible.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A.
