    Think Outside the Booth

    Maximize Your Chocolate Festival Experience


    Thursday, January 28, 2021

    presented by

    Sander Wolf of Dallas Chocolate Festival

    Festivals present great opportunities for exhibitors, but they are a significant expense of time and money. Learn how to choose which events are right for your company, ways to get the most out of your event participation, and what to do before and after each event. Whether virtual or in-person, preparation is the key to success

    Sander Wolf is the founder of the Dallas Chocolate Festival which held its 11th annual event virtually in September. He is also a co-founder of the Craft Chocolate Experience: San Francisco which debuted last March. Going to other people's festivals is one of his favorite things to do. 

    Registration deadline for live webinar is January 26, 2021
