The final workshop will take place in the frame of the 40th International Hospitality Exhibition (HOST) that will take place on October 20-24, 2017 at FieraMilano Rho. During this Event, a window has been reserved from 2.30 to 5.00 p.m. on October 21st, 2017, in which the consortium partners will present the best results of the LIFE Project PLA4COFFEE.

The choice of this location is of great importance for the project’s impact given that HOST includes a world wide scenario of the coffee market as well as a unique marketplace for doing international business with well-selected and high-ranked players.
