GOOD COCOA, BETTER CHOCOLATE

The 8th edition of Chocoa’s business events from February 19 until 23, 2020 in Amsterdam will gather stakeholders from the entire supply chain, from cocoa farmers to chocolate consumers. Our objective is to increase the market for ‘good cocoa and better chocolate’. Chocoa 2020 will host 150 booths and 9.000 visitors during all Chocoa events, including 1.500 professionals. Below the 10 chocoa business events for 2020 are presented.

Introducing a new format: the Chocoa Passe-partout
Chocoa has grown over the years to include several programs, offering more and more interesting topics for our visitors. Some of our visitors told us it was becoming more difficult to choose which program to follow, as interesting topic figure in all programs. This year we have decided to change the format of the B2B program by creating a ‘passe-partout’. One ticket  gives access to all Conference and Forum sessions, allowing visitors to pick and compose their personal program, by selecting their favourite topics from all that are on offer! There will be 2 main tracks consisting of Conferences and the ‘Chocolate Makers’ Forum. These also include the access to the trade fair and festival.

Each program will roughly have a morning block and an afternoon block. You can choose a main track and switch sessions during Chocoa – upon availability.
