The International Café & Beverage Show (ICBS) 2024, the leading showcase of artisan food, beverage, and café products, will be returning to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 23 to 25 May 2024. Visitors get to experience and explore the latest offerings from the café and coffee industry, the return of the Roasters Village, masterclasses, barista skills training and a baking competition held for the first time.

Christopher McCuin, Managing Director of Montgomery Asia:

“We are excited to see the responses from our partners, sponsors, and exhibitors. Following the feedback from last year’s show, we have expanded our space by 60% to include more exhibitors, participants, and visitors. All  Exhibition space was taken up by March  this year!

2024 marks a pivotal milestone as we receive the endorsement by Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE). This endorsement allows eligible companies registered with MATRADE to apply for its Market Development Grant (MDG) as an ICBS exhibitor.

I would like to thank the Malaysian Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC), Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), and Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) for their support for ICBS 2024. Their support was vital to this event’s organisation, and we look forward to welcoming them, the Malaysian café and coffee industry and coffee enthusiasts to the show.”
