If I can only afford to go to one industry show a year which one is a can't miss? I want to see packaging, machines, molds, and talk with chocolate vendors.  Is there a show that covers it all?

I think it's fair to say that the two chocolate industry-specific shows that best meet your description are

The annual Retail Confectioners International convention (this year in Lexington, KY in late June)


The Philadelphia Candy Show (the next one is in mid-September).

I personally can not help you decide which one is better for your needs.

PS. It's hard to take a confectionery industry show seriously when they misspell confectionery as confectionary.
HA HA! That is great! I went to the Philadelphia Candy Show a few years ago before we opened our shop. It was ok. I did see a lot, and learn a lot... We saw tons of packaging and other manufacturers. I remember seeing Hilliard's Chocolate Systems, Savage Brothers, Callebaut, Guittard, Cargill, Tomric, etc... Lots of samples... It was a good place to go to familiarize ourselves with other companies out there. I would like to try the Retail Confectioners International Convention... but I am sure that which ever one you decide to go will see lots and get some great info. and ideas. Try to look at the list of vendors to see who will be there this year. That may help you decide. ~Wendy
