CIC has been an active participant in special events scheduled in each calendar year such as shows, open days, field days and cultrual activities of special significance.

CIC has realised that participation in these events is necessary as it creates an avenue in driving its message to the people of Papua New Guinea to depend on coffee for their livelihoods. Also these events enables the CIC to promote coffee to potential overseas buyers who might be visiting the country to attend these events, especially shows.

The following are scheduled events for the 2023 calendar year. CIC is expected to be present at these events either through direct hosting or indirectly by participating.
