Another new feature for this year’s World Confectionery Conference will be a special pre-event networking and ‘meet the editor’ session, enabling additional discussion of key issues.
As part of our event, which takes place at the Harrogate Convention Centre, Yorkshire, on 5 October, attendees will be offered the chance to take part in our early morning gathering that will address some core themes including tackling shared industry challenges, and supporting women’s career development within the sector.
We have teamed up with Harrogate Chocolate Factory, which operates as a key social enterprises supporting young people with autism, to offer a morning networking session at its cafe from 730am on the day of our event, which will offer the chance for some early exploration of major issues testing the industry.
The event will be open exclusively to our conference attendees, and spaces within the cafe gathering will be limited, so please get in touch with me directly to register your interest for the early session, at [email protected], as well as July being our final Early Bird rate entry to the conference, offering £30 off attendance rates, which will only be available until 5 August – contact [email protected] to make the most of the discount.
From the feedback we have previously received, and from our own direct experience attending events across the world, it’s those personal conversations that are had at conferences that remain among the most highly-prized aspects of any industry event.
With a strong line-up featuring key businesses including Ferrero, Nestle, Cargill, Ghana Cocoa Board, GNT, FMCG Gurus group, Luker Chocolate, York Cocoa House, and Caobisco trade association and many others across the full value chain of the industry, we believe there will be plenty of engaging discussions to be had for this year’s show.
