A reunion in Berlin:
The Bar Convent will take place again in 2021
With an interactive programme and a sophisticated safety and hygiene concept, Bar Convent Berlin 2021 will once again bring the bar and beverage trends of tomorrow to the German capital.
Coffee in Good Spirits Championship at BCB 2021
For the first time ever, the German Coffee in Good Spirits Championship will take place at BCB.
On October 11th 2021, the participants will present their skills in various disciplines and variations to a jury of experts on the BCB Liquid Stage. The competition is not only a stage for exciting new coffee and spirit creations, it also regularly sets new standards in the preparation and symbiosis of coffee and bar culture. It is not uncommon for the winning cocktail to become a new standard that can be found in many bars nationally and internationally.

City Life Spirits
BCB showcases the spirit of urban life
Yes, we're moving! Our new home will be the Berlin Exhibition Centre.
The move marks the beginning of the era of the City Life Spirit for the BCB. The new location creates more space for creativity, stand construction, presentations and networking. The new BCB concept serves as a unifying theme that can be seen in the architecture, content and interaction at the trade show. Every exhibition hall will be transformed into a hub of activity with hotspots and special shows, reflecting the trends of big-city life.
You will continue to find the special atmosphere and the familiar touch at the BCB in the future. The community continues to meet here. We remain authentic and international, with a focus on the premium segments and top education.
Don't miss the chance to be there when the largest trade fair for the bar and beverage industry comes together to present the latest trends and ideas and to set the course for a new start in the industry.
At the beginning of 2020, BCB initiated a collab between bartenders and Berlin artists. The initiative was born at the peak of the corona virus lockdown measures which, as we all know, affected the bar industry and the artistic sectors at large.
The idea is simple: combining a bar team with a local artist to come up with cool, good looking and wearable merchandise in BCB design.
While none of the protagonists met in real life, they were still able to contribute and create something truly unique and original out of their combined expertise. This way we were all able to combine forces in a way that benefits all actors involved!
