Two European Events
This Autumn sees two kombucha-themed events in Europe.
KBI European Salon, Oct 19-21, Barcelona, Spain
Kombucha Brewers International (KBI) is hosting an event in Barcelona open to both members and non-members. This is a version of the well-established KKON held in Long Beach, California.
Centered on the theme of “Convergence,” the KBI European Salon presents an immersive experience that transcends mere discussions, encompassing a rich blend of networking, relaxation and education designed to facilitate the forging of new relationships and collaborations. These interactions mirror the historical context of salons, where artists and thinkers converged to establish meaningful connections that extended beyond the immediate gathering. In partnership with the World Kombucha Awards Gala, KBI is inviting luminaries in the European Kombucha Industry to shed their light on where Kombucha is heading in its next phase of growth and development in the UK & Europe.

Kombucha Summit, Nov 17-18, Berlin, Germany
We can’t really believe it ourselves, but this year will be our fifth anniversary! After our amazing first event in Berlin back in 2019, two virtual events in 2020 and 2021, and last year’s event in Berlin, we are extremely excited to host Kombucha Summit 2023 as an in-person event once more!
From conversations with hundreds of kombucha producers, we know how challenging it can be to build a sustainable kombucha brand and business. Kombucha Summit is here to provide a knowledge exchange and networking platform for kombucha producers from around the world and help them succeed.
The two-day conference will gather commercial kombucha producers and industry partners in one place for networking, knowledge exchange and a lot of kombucha tasting. Our main goal is to help kombucha producers develop amazing products and scale their businesses. If you attended our past events in Berlin, you know how fun and inspirational an in-person Kombucha Summit is!
We are extremely happy to have secured a unique and stunning location for this year’s event: AchtBerlin. The construction of the building was finished just a few weeks ago and it features a state-of-the art cinema and beautiful event spaces, all located in the heart of the city.
The current list of confirmed speakers is:
- Marius Hartmann, BarthHaas
- Freya Landgraf, FOX Engineering & Consulting
- Helge Wieneke, friends2grow
