Did you know the Sweets & Snacks Expo is celebrating its 25th anniversary?
- Originally known as the All Candy Expo, the first show was held in 1997 at Chicago’s Navy Pier and featured 210 manufacturing exhibitors.
- In 2001, the All Candy Expo moved to the Lakeside Building of Chicago‘s McCormick Place to accommodate a growing demand for exhibit space by the world’s leading confectionery manufacturers. Later, the show moved to West Hall and eventually expanded into the Skyline Ballroom, as well.
- In 2007, the All Candy Expo began using the tagline “It’s All About Sweets & Snacks,” foreshadowing the future of the show, and welcomed its first snack exhibitors. In 2010, the event name was officially changed to the Sweets & Snacks Expo.
