Attendees at the 2023 Sweets & Snacks Expo will have more opportunities than ever to learn about key trends impacting confectionery and snack category performance, the retail environment and consumer attitudes and behaviours, according to show organiser National Confectioners Association (NCA).
Hosted by the NCA, the show provides opportunities for more than 16,000 attendees across the candy and snacks industries, with an array of educational programming and a returning feature, the Supplier Showcase, dedicated to helping suppliers to the confectionery and snack industries highlight ingredients, machinery, packaging and services to assist manufacturers with addressing consumer needs and desires.
“The Sweets & Snacks Expo offers an opportunity to stay ahead of the rapidly changing retail landscape through top-tier education sessions to gain insights, stay informed and get inspired,” says John Downs, President and CEO of the NCA. “The education sessions are guided by thought leaders and professionals from across the industry with expertise in a wide range of topics, including flavor and product trends, merchandising and innovation strategies, sustainability and e-commerce. These sessions are designed to focus on relevant issues and opportunities facing our industry to help you grow your business.”
Education programming will take place throughout the show, which is running 22 May to 25 at McCormick Place on three stages. Attendees will have nearly 40 education sessions to select.
The programming is broken down into four topics: Eye-opener Education with sessions featuring insights; Insights Stage where attendees can find latest data and insights on the confectionery and snack categories; Innovations Stage which will feature the latest confectionery and snack product innovations and more and the Inspiration Stage, which will focus on retail and shopper trends, as attendees will learn how to manage the front-end and checkout section of the store.
