The event is now established as the leading event for the global cocoa sector, bringing together the major players from the value chain, from all over the world. The annual event attracts over 1300 participants from 64 countries, drawn from government agencies, chocolate manufacturers, trading companies, cocoa processors, companies involved in trade logistics, finance and insurance as well as suppliers of agricultural inputs and processing technology.
By bringing together all stakeholders, from both producing and consuming countries, the 2018 conference is the ideal forum to examine issues across the value chain.
Sharing knowledge and ideas and making new contacts is one of the key aims of the event, and the conference programme allows ample time for networking and doing business.
