Our story

MICE launched in 2012 with the purpose to connect buyers and sellers, and bring industry members together in a dedicated space.

From the beginning, MICE was created as Australia’s first and only coffee-dedicated trade show; a time for the coffee industry in Australia to come together in one place, at one time. As an annual event, it also provides an anchor point for international guests to connect with new and existing Australian customers.

With so much of the coffee community brought together yearly, the opportunities to generate businesses, to start partnerships, and for the coffee community to connect only grew.

MICE has evolved to become an exciting part of the Australian and world coffee community fabric, and is now the largest dedicated coffee show in the Southern Hemisphere.

For the first time in 2019, MICE took place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

After a highly successful MICE2019 we are pleased to announce that next year MICE will host the 2020 World Barista Championship, taking place from 4-7 May 2020.

There’s no better time to be involved in MICE. We’re excited to welcome the world to the coffee capital of the country – in what really will be in the heart of Melbourne.
