What exhibitors are saying about the Sweets & Snacks Expo:

We have exhibited the past two years at the Sweets & Snacks Expo and we are looking forward to exhibiting again in 2013! The show is well attended by key category buyers making this show a wise investment of marketing dollars. The NCA team of professionals makes the whole process easy. - Joyce Polise, Director of Business Development, Vosges Haut-Chocolat (Wild Ophelia Brands)

This was our first time exhibiting at the Sweets & Snacks Expo. We were amazed by the added visibility our small business got by exhibiting here and also by participating in the many worthwhile programs the show offered us at little-to-no cost. Chicago marked the beginning of a long prosperous journey for our company. We are returning in 2013!
