What the world needs now, is chocolate. Sweet choclate!

Get ready people, this year’s Chocolate Conference & Festival will take place on September 29 at the Addison Conference Centre. As in past years, the classes cover almost every aspect of chocolate -- from making it to baking with it. Classes include demonstrations, expert roundtables, plenty of opportunities for questions and, of course, unique chocolates samples.

The Chocolate Conference will kick-off at 10:00 AM.  Click here to see a complete list of classes and seminars.  While all classes are included with a ticket purchase, space is limited and is on a first come, first seated basis.

The Chocolate Festival, also included with a ticket purchase, takes place in an adjoining room of the Addison Conference Centre from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm. The Festival is a room of wall-to-wall chocolate where attendees can choose to sample chocolates from over twenty participating chocolatiers and chocolate makers.
