NCA’s Signature Events
Each fall the confectionery industry takes to Capitol Hill during the Washington Forum to speak with our congressional leaders with a united voice. The Washington Forum gives confectionery manufacturers a chance to advocate for their interests, forge a relationship with their congressional representative and outline our industry’s economic contributions to leading elected officials.
The State of the Industry Conference brings together confectionery industry leaders and retail partners for three days of connection, learning and collaboration each March. The event provides an opportunity for high-level discussion on industry priorities and gives the confectionery industry a chance to connect with their retail partners in a more relaxed setting.
The Sweets & Snacks Expo is North America’s largest confectionery and snack trade show, bringing together more than 17,000 industry professionals to discover the latest products, merchandising techniques and industry insights each May in Chicago. Attendees come to be inspired, connect with their peers and discover new ways to delight their shoppers.
The confectionery industry’s C-suite leadership convenes in Laguna Beach every July for the NCA Leadership Summit. Together, we set a course for the future of our industry, gauge the industry’s progress against NCA’s strategic goals for the year and connect over the issues that have the greatest impact on the confectionery industry.
