Next chocolate destination on the agenda: Madrid 🇪🇸📌
The @chocomad2019 (Salon Internacional del Chocolate de Madrid) will take place inside the Palacio de Cibeles in Madrid on September 20-22.
For the first half of the year, my mind was actually set on the Salon du Chocolat in Paris (October 30 - November 3). I haven't been there in 2 years, and was so curious to see what was new. But after reading the list of exhibitors for the Salon Internacional in Madrid, I was totally hooked 📝😍
So I re-directed the budget for Paris towards Madrid (and only a massive increase in my freelance work in the next 2 months will make me have the budget for both, but let a girl dream).
Unlike the Salon du Chocolat in Paris, which is a melting pot of chocolate companies of different sizes from Chocolat Chapon to Nestlé, the Salon Internacional in Madrid entirely focuses on the good quality, bean-to-bar, flavorful chocolate that we all appreciate in this community 🌱➡️🍫
The list of exhibitors is juicy, as it includes companies that:
- rarely exhibit at international shows (Rózsavölgyi Csokoládé, Original Beans, Duffy's Chocolate),
- companies from overseas that are probably looking to establish/strengthen their presence in Europe (Raaka Chocolate, Taza Chocolate, Marou Chocolate),
- brands whose delicious chocolate is generally hard to come by (Goodio Chocolate, Fjak Sjokolade, Utopick Chocolate),
- new chocolate start ups worth meeting (Nikoa, Nexo Chocolate), - established companies that never disappoint (Pacari Chocolate, Conexión, Francois Pralus, Amazing Cacao),
& many more!
With this lineup, there was no way I could pass on this trip 💼🌎
Flights and hotels are already booked. Therefore, let the language training with Spanish telenovelas begin!
Will I see you in Madrid? 👇
