World Confectionery Conference 2023 edition gathers pace with fresh website

With our World Confectionery Conference 2023 edition just four months away, we’ve given our event website a refresh in the build-up to the event, as our plans continue to gather momentum.

Taking place on 5 October at the Harrogate Convention Centre, Yorkshire, UK, our annual showcase for our international audience aims to place a key spotlight on major topics of sustainability, business resilience and innovation across the global sector, addressing shared challenges and opportunities for the industry across finished product, equipment, ingredients and systems market segments.

So check out our newly revamped website for the show here, where you can easily register for the event, and where we will continue to offer updates in the coming weeks with additional news and speakers. Our conference, as previously, celebrates some of the ongoing major achievements of the industry that are being made despite wider industry tests in supply chains.

This year’s show is set to build upon the success of last year’s live event in Brussels, and will be staged at the Harrogate Convention Centre on 5 October, featuring a broad range of businesses and organisations including Caobisco European confectionery trade body, and major market groups including Ferrero, Cargill and Nestlé will be playing their part on the speaker front. There will also be plenty of market insights unveiled by FMCG Gurus, which will shine a light on some of the hottest trends of the year.

Also joining our line-up will be contributions from Fairtrade, Ghana Cocoa Board, Royal Duyvis Wiener, MacIntyre, GNT, Baker Perkins, Cama, Luker Chocolate, Plamil and Farmforce, as well as seeing a return of our annual awards for industry excellence – so make sure you get your entries in across our five categories for this year’s event. This can be done via the event website, along with show registration.

In addition, we are also offering a further activity day for the conference, on 6 October, in neighbouring York, hosted by York Cocoa House, with its two sessions including a tour of the company’s facilities, as well as a second session dedicated to chocolate making, which requires booking in advance separately through the following direct link.

Confectionery Production editor Neill Barston commented: “With our event fast approaching, we have jointly assembled a strong editorial programme blending a broad cross section of the industry – from major confectionery, cocoa and chocolate businesses, through to independent companies that offer fresh inspiration amid market challenges, to celebrate the sector’s achievements in 2023.

“The event is set to offer some extremely valuable networking opportunities, industry market insights and our awards that will top the event off with a flourish, acknowledging the hard work and creativity of our combined industries that have continued to show considerable strength in the face of ongoing challenges.”
