About Kombucha Summit
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.
After the tremendous success of the first edition in 2019 with 263 attendees from 30+ countries, Kombucha Summit 2020 will be bigger and better. The two-day conference will gather 350+ commercial Kombucha producers and 10+ partner exhibitors in one place for networking, knowledge exchange, sourcing and, of course, a lot of Kombucha tasting.

Rupert Hoffschmidt & Fabio CarlucciFounders of ROY Kombucha
We opened our own Kombucha brewery in the summer of 2019 in Berlin and have been experiencing the needs and challenges of Kombucha brewers first hand. As former event and community builders in our previous careers, we felt a format like Kombucha Summit was missing. Bringing the whole industry together to learn from each other and network is what we set out to do, with the goal of helping each other and the Kombucha market succeed.
An amazing location with loads of entrepreneurial history.
Malzfabrik is an old malthouse from the 1920s now turned into a unique and beautiful event location. Its history and atmosphere will make the heart of any Kombucha brewer beat faster.
