World Confectionery Conference gains rescheduled date for debut event

The World Confectionery Conference is set to be rescheduled for Friday, 26 March, 2021, in response to the ongoing international situation surrounding coronavirus.

Moving the event from its original date of 11 September this year will enable us to deliver it to its full potential, as businesses continue to adapt amid challenging trading conditions during the next few months.

To date, we have had an encouragingly strong response to plans for our key sector showcase. It is due to feature leading enterprises across confectionery, snacks and bakery markets from around the globe. So, it is with safety measures for participants and visitors in mind, as well as providing the means for us to hold the conference in its physical format as we originally envisaged, that our decision has been made.

A note of thanks is owed to event sponsor Cargill, plus our keynote speakers including Caobisco trade association, Fairtrade, Innova Market Insights and confectionery specialist Andy Baxendale, and all others taking part, for their continued support as we progress with our renewed plans for 2021.

The conference venue remains the same, the Brussels Marriott Hotel, Grand Place, Belgium, so we very much hope that you will all be able to join with us to celebrate some of the many key achievements within our industry through our event programme including the accompanying World Confectionery Awards. The deadline for entries regarding this element has now been extended to 10 January, 2021.
