In 2024, the foyer and product sample exhibition will once again invite visitors to get to know new products and processes. Exchange ideas with other participants and high-ranking speakers from industry and research or visit the poster exhibition! In the “poster slam”, the poster exhibitors then present the most important content of their research within one minute. A great supporting program and a festive dinner on the first evening round off the congress.

The foyer exhibition

A foyer exhibition is held in the exhibition halls throughout the event and has since become an important part of CHOCO TEC. Here exhibitors have the opportunity to present their products and machines to an international audience. Some of the exhibitors will be giving short presentations of their new products during the generous breaks.


CHOCO TEC is primarily aimed at technology enthusiasts from the chocolate industry. The congress also offers a wide range of interesting topics for those involved in science, production and quality management, product development and analytics.
