Chicago’s Navy Pier site of November chocolate shows

The National Chocolate Show and Chicago Fine Chocolate Show—the only dual consumer and trade shows in the U.S. dedicated to the chocolate industry—will be held Nov. 16-18 at Navy Pier in Chicago.

Sponsored by numerous industry groups, including The French Pastry School, Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), National Confectioners Association’s Chocolate Council and American Culinary Federation (ACF), The National Chocolate Show and Chicago Fine Chocolate Show were created to address both trade professionals and consumers, respectively. Both shows will showcase Chicago as the leader in the chocolate industry, drive advancements in chocolate and educate both audiences through two distinct events.

Open to targeted buyers of chocolate products and services, The National Chocolate Show will feature exhibitors specializing in chocolate products, supplies, ingredients, packaging, displays, apparel and more; a conference program focusing on topics of interest to industry professionals, such as cocoa farming sustainability and fine flavor exploration; and a demonstration stage showcasing the latest chocolate trends.

The Chicago Fine Chocolate Show is open to anyone. Key highlights include educational sessions by FCIA; a Fine Artisanal Chocolate Area featuring products from FCIA members and other top chocolatiers from the U.S. and around the world; a Pairings Pavilion, where guests can learn how to pair and taste the nuances of fine chocolate; and more.
