I am moving to Berlin in September 2008 and want to get myself to the next available chocolate show. What are my options? I have googled, but not to much avail...

Thanks,
Sandra

You have a lot of options October-November. Annual shows/festivals like Chocolate Week in Lodon, Salon du Chocolat in Paris, Chokladfestivalen in Stockholm and Eurochocolate in Perugia.
Check pod-section for links to festivals:

Thanks! I just looked up all of the festivals you suggested. I have two further questions for you (trust me, I look forward to the day that I will be _answering_ questions!): Are the presentations usually in English or the native language?
Which festival would you personally choose to attend and why?

Thanks,
Sandra

Presentations usually are in the native language as far as I know. In Stockholm English is used by a few foreign celebreties.
My personal choice would be a festival dedicated to real chocolate. Eurochocolate sounds to mainstream today. I've bin to London and Stockholm. Paris might be great but I've bin there.

Thanks, it sounds like Paris or London since I don't speak Swedish.
