Welke Customs Brokers to Present at Coffeefest in February

Damon Piatek, President and CEO of Welke Customs Brokers USA, will be a featured presenter at the 2015 Coffeefest, an international trade show serving the specialty coffee and gourmet tea industries. Coffeefest will be held in February in Atlanta, GA. The event has been in existence since 1992.

 

“Coffeefest 2015, as suggested by its name, will be a celebration of coffee and an opportunity for people to coalesce around the coffee business,” said Piatek. “As good a time as that sounds, there are many intricacies in importing coffee into the United States. We know from experience that a lot of importers across every industry are not necessarily keeping up with changing regulations. Coffeefest will be a good opportunity for us to bring some critical information about coffee importing to industry stakeholders.”

It's never been a better time to come downtown to Buffalo.

Rinks At RiverWorks Make Their Debut


BUFFALO, NY - The first phase of the $18 million RiverWorks sports and entertainment complex got a workout Monday night, hosting members of the Buffalo Curling Club on one of its two outdoor, covered ice rinks.

Located on Ganson Street in the heart of a long time industrial area, RiverWorks marks another effort to transform the Queen City's waterfront into a place for the public to party and to play.

While the ice pavilion represents the first phase of the project, other portions are due to come on line in 2015.

By late February, in time for the Labatt Pond Hockey tournament that has found a new home here, another key component of the project will be ready.

It includes a 6,000-seat auditorium, suitable for concerts and conventions, with a roller derby rink, restaurant, and three bars.
