This year’s ECRM Candy Annual Efficient Program Planning Session event Sept. 18-21 in Orland, Fla., will offer more than just a chance to network within in the industry - it’ll also be a chance to showcase the very best confections.

Candy Industry will be sponsoring the “Candy Buyer’s Choice Awards.”

Buyers will received a ballot for the award from ECRM Hospitality when they check in, and will be able to vote in three categories: Best New Chocolate, Best New Non-Chocolate and Best New Novelty Candy.

Ballots will be due at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 20, and can be turned into ECRM hospitality or other ECRM employees. Winners will then be announced before the cocktail hour at 7 p.m. that night.
