"The All Candy Expo is by far the largest confectionery and snack trade show in the Americas. Plus, the 2008 EXPO is the only show in the US that represents all of the major distribution and trade channels in the confectionery and snack industry in one location, " commented Tom Joyce, Vice President, Customer & Industry Affairs, The Hershey Company, and Chairman of the All Candy Expo Committee. "Exhibitors will find the largest U.S. and American customers from Wal-Mart, Costco, and Target to Walgreens and CVS Drug Stores."

The All Candy Expo is the one comprehensive stop that confectionery professionals need to make in order to discover the hottest emerging trends in the largest confectionery market in the world.

"New products are essential to our industry nearly 30 percent of U.S. confectionery retail sales are generated by products released in the last two years, " noted NCA President, Larry Graham. "In 2007, the top 25 confectionery products across chocolate, non chocolate and gum generated more than $700 million in retail sales. Those manufacturers and their new products are at our EXPO."

More than 5,000 pre-qualified buyers attended the 2007 EXPO. Visitors travel from nearly 70 countries to attend. It's the best place to connect with importers, exporters and distributors from around the world.
