Salon du Chocolat Lyon

| Chocolate fair

Since its inception in 1995, the Salon du Chocolat has established itself as a world-renowned stage for chocolate enthusiasts and industry professionals, held annually at the Centre de Congrès in Lyon. As an exhibition passionately dedicated to the world of chocolate, the salon, organized by Event International SA, aims to provide a platform where chocolatiers, pastry chefs, cocoa producers, and brands can showcase and share their products, innovations, and expertise from around the world..

The Salon du Chocolat emphasizes the diversity and richness of the chocolate industry, focusing on key topics such as innovations in chocolate creations, the display of chocolate sculptures and other monumental chocolate works, as well as various competitions in the fields of chocolate-making and patisserie. Not only are products and services, such as the latest laboratory equipment, packaging solutions, and chocolate products presented, but also exclusive specialties and chocolate artworks specifically created for the exhibition.

In Lyon, a city renowned for its culinary diversity and culture, the fair stands as a cornerstone institution. This context enhances the fair's reputation as a central event for chocolate enthusiasts and professionals worldwide. Highlights of the fair include international chocolate and patisserie competitions, live performances, demonstrations by top chocolatiers and pastry chefs, and a B2B section showcasing the industry's latest trends and technologies.

Exhibitors from various sectors, including chocolatiers, cocoa producers, major brands, and even food bloggers, showcase their latest creations and techniques. The primary visitors typically come from the fields of chocolate-making, patisserie, hospitality, and food retail, but chocolate enthusiasts, families, and professionals from related industries are also in attendance.

The fair is not limited to Lyon but is part of an international series of events held in cities worldwide, thereby placing a global emphasis on the diversity and creativity within the chocolate industry.

In summary, the Salon du Chocolat is not only a paradise for chocolate aficionados but also an invaluable platform for networking and knowledge exchange for industry professionals. The venue, Centre de Congrès in Lyon, is centrally located and easily accessible by public transport or car.
