"Caffé Vero exhibited in the ICTF for the first time to showcase roasted coffee beans. We feel Dubai is an important market for the tea and coffee industry and therefore wanted to explore more opportunities here. We are satisfied with our participation as it was a very well-organized show and an important event for the beverage industry. We plan to return in 2016 with the hope of scoring more deals than this year."Sales Manager | Caffé Vero
"Since Dubai is a growing market for the coffee and tea business, we decided to take part in ICTF 2015. In our first participation, we exhibited our coffee products. It is a dedicated show for the coffee and tea industry with many interesting features that cater effectively to the expanding local market. Yes, we are keen to participate in next year’s edition but expect better marketing and bigger coverage for the event."General Manager | Saif Coffee
"We made our debut in the ICTF 2015 with the aim to explore the tea and coffee market in the UAE and the region. We showcased our experience and research on the industry and were on a look out for an agent who can promote our products in the local market. We look forward to our participation in 2016; however, we would like the UAE to focus on and further develop its organic tea and coffee segment."| Yunnan Yikang Bio-technology Co. Ltd.
