The 2020 Sweets & Snacks Expo (May 19-21) is expected to bring together more than 850 of the most innovative confectionery and snack companies and brands, as well as thousands of retailers and distributors, from the United States and around the world, many of which are actively looking for opportunities to expand their businesses internationally.

Sweets & Snacks Expo attendees gain access to hundreds of the world’s greatest candy and snack makers; more than 25 education sessions on topics like supply chain transparency, retail innovation and shopper trends; the show’s pre-show Most Innovative New Product Awards celebration; and Destination Retail, the show’s hub for new merchandising techniques and tips.
