The National Chocolate and Dessert Show in its second year is already the preeminent chocolate event and the only trade show dedicated to the chocolate industry. This event fulfills an unmet need for a trade show dedicated solely to chocolate in the United States, with Chicago being the home of seven of the top ten manufacturers in chocolate. Chicago was a natural choice for the shows, as the epicenter of the confection industry.


Endorsed by a team of elite sponsors in the industry including The French Pastry School, Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA), Dessert Professional magazine, American Culinary Federation-Windy City Professional Culinarians (ACF), Candy Industry magazine, Gourmet News, American Cake Decorating magazine and more.


The National Chocolate and Dessert Show and the Chicago Fine Chocolate and Dessert Show is a dual show concept and was created to address both the trade professional and consumer, 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.


The show will be held Sunday, October 20 through Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at Chicago’s Navy Pier - Festival Hall. Advanced Registration is FREE until September 15, 2013. From September 16 – October 19, 2013 the fee is $29 if you register online. However, if you register on site (at the show) the fee is $35. Conference Registration is $29 per conference and includes admission into the trade show at no extra cost.
