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:

A Chocolate Guide to Manhattan 

ImageThink - exciting visual recording of Table Talks, Keynote & HCP Update

"As a new member in the FCIA the last year's event was my first exposure to the membership. Not only was I welcomed as a peer, I was exposed to suppliers and fellow chocolatiers that cared as much as I do about Chocolate. The evening provided a wealth of information, from quality packaging suppliers to extremely unique Chocolates to work with and educational resources. I look forward to a continuing membership as "Papa's Chocolates" continues to grow."
John Walter, Papa's Chocolates
