Prefer chocolate over candy? Then New York's annual Chocolate Show is for you. The New York Chocolate Show is the largest of its kind with more 150 chocolatiers and pastry chefs showing off their finest products to the public. This year's dates haven't been announced yet (it's typically held in the fall) but you can sign up to receive a newsletter so you'll know all the details as soon as they are released.
If you're luck enough to be a part of the candy industry (whether you own a candy company or work at a convenience store) you are eligible to attend the ultimate candy convention - the Sweets and Snacks Expo. The convention will be held in Chicago on May 21-23, 2013 and feature "3 + acres of candy and snacks", who wouldn't want to get in on that! For more information, visit sweetsandsnacks.com.
