HORECA 2019 • Visitor Testimonials
HORECA was stunning. We were here for the first time together with BREWDOG. It's a huge organization, it's crazy what's going on here. All exhibitors are passionate about their products, which are of excellent quality both in the coffee sector and in beer, spirits and food. We have been working with AMPERIADIS for several years and we are completely satisfied with the outcome.

It's the first time I've been to HORECA and Athens. A very beautiful event, with a lot of people. You feel fantastic when you stop the guests and try to convince them to taste new beer flavors and see if they like it. Our cooperation with AMPERIADIS started last year and we are very happy about this. It is impressive how much the Greeks love beer.
Vasja Golae / Owner BEVOG / AMPERIADIS

The coffee market in Greece is very sophisticated because it combines both Italian coffee products and coffee roasters with the specialty coffee movement that is really developed here.

This is my first time in HORECA and I am very impressed, because I did not expect so many coffee and beverage brands to be gathered all in an exhibition. Furthermore, with Mr Tsaknakis we cooperate for long period of time and we form a strong team as we have many products and we are adapting our strategy locally depending on the market and the transportation.
