It is that time of the year again and we’ve just finalised the programme for this year’s UK Chocolatiers Conference which is going to be held on Monday 20th July at Westminster Kingsway College, Vincent Square, London SW1.
Although we had some amazing sessions at last year’s conference like Jacek Sikora from Chocoffee, we hope to continue our mission to inspire, educate & motivate with an excellent programme of speakers.
This year world famous Bart Van Cauwenberghe, Belgian Chocolate Ambassador and chocolate flavour wizard will be demonstrating his outstanding expertise and revealing how he competes in what must be the most crowded chocolate market in the world.
We are also extremely lucky to have founder member of the Academy of Chocolate, Chantal Coady who started Rococo Chocolates 25 years ago and will be talking about her life in chocolate and the trials & tribulations of being a chocolate retailer.
On the marketing front, visual merchandising expert Alan Springall will show how merchandising, skillfully executed, can give the consumer confidence in their decision making and communicate the aspirational image essential for selling quality hand-made chocolates.
Giles Speid from Westminster Trading Standards will be back looking at the latest legislation to affect chocolatiers. He will also tackle any particular areas of concern or confusion.
Top chocolatier & pastry chef Damian Allsop from Damian Allsop Chocolates will have some fresh chocolate making ideas and will be demonstrating how to make marshmallows suitable not just for children, but also for adults.
As last year, we will be holding an informal networking event the night before the conference and for the first time, by popular request, we will be organising a mutual ‘blind’ chocolate tasting session – so you can have your chocolates ‘rated’ by your fellow chocolatiers.
Finally, we are planning special ‘Innovation’ spots where you will be able to see mini presentations of some of the latest innovations in the world of chocolate & chocolate making.
Don’t miss this superb opportunity to be inspired.
Tickets cost £135 + VAT per person (£158.63 inc VAT) and are inclusive of lunch & refreshments and pre-conference network event.
