Welcome to the LCF – 10th October 2019

Welcome to the London Chocolate Forum, the world’s biggest international chocolate industry conference and networking event for the industrial chocolate industry that takes place every year in The London Docklands. In 2019 The LCF is back with many improvements – this time with much more networking time and a fabulous networking lunch avaliable for ALL exhibitors and delegates! So in 2019 you can stay in the conference building and keep networking all day long. Another change in 2019 will be the addition of a catering package ticket type – which includes the cost of your morning / afternoon teas and coffees, fabulous buffet lunch, priority lecture hall seating and unlimited drinks reception. We think this is fair, excellent value and believe people network so much better when they are eating together! Please note we are only charging for catering, and there are still free places avaliable like in previous years if you do not wish to pre-order your catering. We subsequently can offer overall a far better experience for you and make sure that delegates are serious about coming.

The LCF is held in the state-of-the-art conferencing and exhibition centre in the heart of London’s Royal Victoria Docks – The Crystal building, Royal Victoria Dock, in the UK.

Taking place on Thursday 10th October 2019 for the day, this prestigious chocolate industry conference is designed for senior management from within the international chocolate trade and manufacturing industry to meet, network, exchange ideas and stay in tune with challenges and new technologies facing the industry.

The LCF not only provides outstanding networking opportunites, but also includes a day’s lecture program running through the day with keynote industry lectures that have been carefully selected by the editors of Kennedy’s Confection magazine on global chocolate manufacturing /packing trends and chocolate industry challenges.

The LCF 2019 provides you with a unique chance to forge valuable new relationships with over 300 senior professionals flying in from all over the world.
