About Confectionery aWARDS

Introducing the International Confectionery Awards: an awards show that upholds, recognises and celebrates the achievements of those working at the forefront of the confectionery industry. Proudly presented working collaboratively with the must-attend virtual confectionery event Confectionery Live, this event is building on the achievements of a virtual platform that has welcomed 1000 attendees representing 83 countries in 2023.

These awards are more than just a ceremony; they are a commitment. At International Confectionery we champion innovators and thought leaders who are blazing their own path. Building on the success of our two virtual Confectionery Live events and the number one market leader in confectionery B2B publishing, our mission goes beyond just reporting. We are dedicated to fostering growth, encouraging creativity and setting benchmarks for the future of the industry.

This is not just about celebrating the best of today but envisioning a brighter, sweeter future for all.
