Introduction
Chairman
Specialty Coffee Association of Japan
Kentaro Maruyama
Thank you for your continued support of the Specialty Coffee Association of Japan (SCAJ). The specialty coffee market in Japan continues to grow and has captured an 11% share of the entire market. SCAJ is also growing with the current total number of personal and company memberships exceeding 1,700.

Once again, we are pleased to hold our largest event of the year, the SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition, in September 2019. Since this year is just one year ahead of the coming Tokyo Olympics in 2020, the event will be held two weeks earlier than usual on September 11-13. The theme for this year is “Innovation with Hospitality”.

In today’s world, innovation is progressing thanks to growing scientific knowledge and new insights. Innovation is welcome, of course, but at the same time, innovation is meaningless without hospitality in our quest to brew the best coffee. In this respect, one could say that innovation and hospitality are the “two wheels”.

We have set “Innovation with Hospitality” as our theme this year in order to further advance both concepts. In line with this theme, 25 coffee producing countries and regions, and 300 providers of machines, equipment, and seminars on information and quality will exhibit at the SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition 2019. The event will also include final stage competitions for various specialty coffees at event stages set up throughout the venue.

Lastly, we at SCAJ would like to thank all of our loyal supporters such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassy representatives from coffee producing countries, SCAJ members, sponsors, committee members, participants, and volunteer staff members.

Please come join us at SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition 2019. We are looking forward to welcoming you at the event!
Chairman
Exhibition & Conference Committee
Specialty Coffee Association of Japan
Katsuhiko Hasegawa
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the consistent and wonderful support everyone has shown for the Specialty Coffee Association of Japan (SCAJ). Thanks to all of you, the SCAJ is celebrating its 16th anniversary, in commemoration of which we have made a new start as we prepare to hold our 15th exhibition this year.

Last year, a total of 177 specialty coffee related companies, organizations and other groups from 25 countries and regions including coffee producing countries exhibited at 316 booths at SCAJ 2018. In addition, a record-surpassing total of 34,519 people from 43 countries and regions visited the exhibition during the three-day event. This is also a demonstration of the value that people from both Japan and the rest of the world attach to this event, which is the largest dedicated to specialty coffee in Asia.

This year marks the 16th anniversary of the SCAJ since its founding. Last year, we expanded the floor space of the SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition 2018 by 1.6 times compared to two years previous to a total size of 11,520㎡ (4,680㎡ + 6,840㎡) in the West 3・4 halls of Tokyo Big Site. The increase in venue size was such a big success that we decided to use the same size space at the same venue for the SCAJ World Specialty Coffee Conference and Exhibition 2019. Thanks to this expansion in space, various new initiatives and competitions which had previously been held outside of exhibition venue could be included within the same venue space. We believe it has and will strongly contribute to the success of our annual event.

Information about the rapidly-advancing specialty coffee industry will be available at SCAJ 2019 before anywhere else.
We hope that you will be able to personally experience the innovative progress that everything associated with specialty coffee continues to demonstrate and have a chance to see firsthand the excellence of specialty coffee , an enticing beverage that amazes and inspires people around the world as it continues to become an integral part of our modern lifestyle.
