Retail Confectioners International (RCI) has announced that its 2023 Annual Convention & Industry Expo is set for June 12-16 at the Wisconsin Center District Convention Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

The organization said it chose Milwaukee for its proximity to a concentrated group of candy makers and suppliers.

 For more than 100 years, facilitating connections between candy makers as well as their suppliers has been a fundamental component of the association and its events. The announcement comes following a successful event in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in July. 

“We look forward to delivering another impactful attendee experience in 2023 including plenty of connection opportunities, valuable education sessions, confectionery tours and the Industry Expo,” said RCI Executive Director Angie Burlison.

Suppliers of equipment, packaging, chocolate, ingredients and more are invited to reserve booths now for RCI’s Industry Expo, scheduled for June 13-14. 

“In conjunction with the convention, the Industry Expo is a great opportunity for candy makers to not only connect with suppliers, but also see, touch and, in many cases, taste new products,” Burlison said.
