Washington, D.C. – For the 8th year in a row, booth space for the Sweets & Snacks Expo has sold out. Hosted by the National Confectioners Association, the Sweets & Snacks Expo (May 21-23, 2019) will welcome more than 15,000 attendees from 90 countries as more than 800 exhibitors display new and innovative products.
“It’s truly remarkable to see this level of excitement related to exhibiting at the Sweets & Snacks Expo. The show floor is a bright and vibrant part of the show experience,” John Downs, president and CEO of NCA, said. “Hundreds of exhibitors bring thousands of products, which include classic favorites right next to brand new items, many of which have yet to hit the shelves. There’s no better place to build partnerships, find and experience innovation, and learn about what’s next in the snack and confectionery categories.”
The Sweets & Snacks Expo management team has created a waitlist for potential exhibitors, and is currently registering retailers, wholesalers, brokers, suppliers and investors. Media registration is also open for credentialed journalists. Those interested in attending should visit SweetsAndSnacks.com for more information.
