Introducing: New name. New format. New value-added activities
FCIA announces a new name for our events - Elevate Chocolate.
It proudly trumpets our commitment to elevate the art and flavor of fine chocolate.
With our new name comes a new format where questions you want answered form the
foundation of the educational program - via Table Talks. A shorter but more focused formal presentation
gives you more time to network and visit the Gallery Showcase and chocolate sampling table.
And it doesn't end there. We're pleased to provide more value-added activities to the event experience:
