Starfish Junction Productions, long-time producer of the Coffee & Tea Festival NYC, is putting the final touches on the 1st annual Coffee & Tea Festival:  Philly to be held on November 2-3, 2013 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.  The event is open to the public and the trade. This new Philly area show is based on the popular Coffee and Tea Festival NYC, now preparing for year nine.

Information about the 2013 Coffee & Tea Festival Philly, including event programming lineup, is available at the event website:
“More than 40 exhibitors will be participating this year.  The exhibitors represent both national and local coffee and tea companies as well as some amazing food companies which offer a nice compliment to the other exhibitors,” said Kristyn Noren, event manager at Starfish Junction.  “We’ve assembled some impressive talent, true industry leaders and pioneers, to host the event programming.  Attendees are in for a real treat,” added Noren.  Many of the programs are free yet some do require advance tickets and a small materials fee to attend, reservations are suggested.  Tickets can be purchased at the event website.
