Why you should go. In need a caffeine jolt of the good stuff? The CoffeeCon, like the annual Coffee & Tea Festival at the Brooklyn Expo Center, invites patrons to sample a variety of different coffees, however, with a twist. Let industry experts guide you through the best possible cuppa joe experience, one sip at a time into caffeine bliss.

Useful tips:

  • Alone or with friends? Either or.
  • Dress casually, comfy shoes and a small tote bag for promo goodies
  • Check the MTA Weekend service advisories
  • Travel lightly, parents with strollers should go early to avoid crowds
  • Business cards are always a plus.
