“The education sessions offered at the Sweets & Snacks Expo are unparalleled. As consumer habits continue to change during this uncertain time, access to top-tier education and insights is more important than ever, and this year attendees will have access to some of the brightest minds in the confectionery and snack industries,” said John Downs, president and CEO of the National Confectioners Association. 

“Whether they’re looking to prepare for National Candy Month this June, get inspired for a bigger social media presence or rethink their front-end strategy, our attendees can find what they’re looking for – and more – at this year’s Sweets & Snacks Expo.”
