We’re now less than two months away from PRF Colombia, and final preparations for both the two-day forum in Medellín and the Origin Trip Experience are underway.
A few weeks ago, we announced our partnership with Mayorga Coffee to sponsor coffee farmers to attend PRF. We’re delighted to announce that we have now confirmed the recipients of these scholarships.
Furthermore, we also want to send out a final call to anyone who would still like to book an exhibition stand at the two-day forum, as spaces are nearly sold out.
Read on for more news on both fronts!
PRF Colombia scholarships awarded
This year, PRF Colombia’s Diamond Sponsor, Mayorga Coffee, partnered with us on a scholarship programme to sponsor PRF tickets for some 500 producers.
Applicants were required to meet certain criteria; eligible supply chain actors included smallholder farmers, young coffee producers, women in the coffee sector, and producers who are otherwise innovating in the coffee sector.
Furthermore, applicants were asked to provide information on the work they do and their contributions to their communities (as well as the wider industry as a whole).
We’re delighted to announce that these scholarships have now officially been awarded, with the successful applicants set to be informed in the coming days.
We were absolutely thrilled with the number of producers who applied, and we are grateful for the sponsorship of Mayorga Coffee.
Book your exhibitor booth before you miss out
We’ve been speaking to potential exhibitors and partners for the two-day forum in Medellín for months, and are delighted to announce that the uptake has been huge. Nearly all of the available exhibitor booths at the Plaza Mayor venue have now been filled.
However, with just a handful of booths remaining, we wanted to send out a final call to any local or international coffee businesses. If you were considering booking a booth before, now is likely to be your last chance to do so.
Exhibitor booths at PRF Colombia will be branded spaces where you can interact with producers, roasters, consumers, co-ops, and exporters, and a number of other coffee industry professionals. We expect that more than 5,000 people will attend the event, and if you don’t book your booth now, this is an audience you are likely to miss out on
You still have some time to apply, but we can’t guarantee that the spaces will remain open for much longer.
If you’re interested in booking a booth or partnering with PRF Colombia in another capacity, contact a member of our team today.
