Retail Confectioners International (RCI) says its Annual Convention & Industry Expo, slated for June 15-19 in Pittsburgh, is proceeding as planned.

In email to members, RCI said the organization is continuing to closely monitor the situation.

“The heart of the association has always been and still is helping chocolate and candy makers connect with each other and grow their businesses,” said Angie Burlison, RCI director. “Please stay connected with us and let us know how we can further help.”

RCI will post updates about any necessary changes or contingency plans on its website, Facebook, Twitter and in emails to RCI members and exhibitors. 

Registration will continue with an extended early-bird discount deadline of April 24. RCI will accept cancellations until June 1 with a full refund and no cancellation fee.
