SWEETS FOR MY SWEET – SUGAR FOR MY HONEY

AND

CHOOOOCOOOLATE!

Thursday, September, 20.

Starting at noontime.

This year it will be held for over 4 days.

Day1:  Will be opening and celebrating the 2nd “Sweet Days” in Budapest, up on the hills at the Buda Castle area.

On this day, beside being the professional day, the public Choco lovers can also pay be visit. On this day the adults visiting the scene can come in by buying a cheaper ticket. According to the last year’s great success, the area and the number of exhibitors will be increased to the double.

For the first time during the “Sweet Days” there will be “Sweet Bus” giving a direct bus transportation back-and-forth on the route from the Adam Clark Square (Buda-side just a few steps from the Chain-bridge) with stops at the Castle Hill, Dózsa Square and the Tunnel route.

The patron of the Sweet Days is Mr. Sándor Sánta, President of the Association of the Hungarian Confectionery Manufacturer.

Last year, the Guest of Honor was Ms. Sarah J. Evans who gladly accepted our invitation and was present with “sweet” lectures at the Sweet Days.
This year we invited to be the Guest of  Honor the not less known in the world of Choco, Mr. Chloé Doutre-Roussel, who is internationally recognized as a popular expert in the land-of-sweets. He already has served many courses, organized conferences, released publications and has created his own brand chocolate. He also runs and is an expert at the Chocolate Department at the Fortnum & Mason in London.

At the “Sweet Days” will not be missing the domestic industry professionals, a showcase on which all major Hungarian chocolate and confectionery manufactory show up, the best traders, as well as the well-known international and domestic brands.

Beside the high standard of professionals  family services will be offered to the visitors. Just mentioning a couple: Toxicological lectures, whereas there will be possibilities to consult  on the spot with members in the dental care, diabetes and listen to nutrition consultants.

During the daytime professional workshops and artisan chocolate truffles basics tutorial courses will be held.
Professional “gurus” presentations can be followed. Options to re-discover, the renowned manufacturers again.

During the afternoon, cosy street jazz music will fulfill the air to entertain the audience at several points at the “Sweet Days” surroundings.

During the evenings, same as in previous year, funk, soul, jazz and the cocktails, champagne and wide selection of wines that also go with the chocolates will surely make the visitors day, I mean evening to get into the mood.

For the first time there will be a Chocolate Sculpture, built by the Callebaut chocolate sculpture building professional team of the National Gallery. Can be seen how the sculpture layers “gets alive” and on the Sunday evening, the 4th day at the end of the “Sweet Days” the visitors may eat bits-and-pieces of the grand statue.
The National Gallery invites families and gathered friends  to pay a visit to the Gallery’s permanent exhibition. With the “Sweet Days” tickets the entry is free of charge. Having chocolates all around you is a great teaser and a challenge not to be left out on the nights for doing “Chocolate Night Shopping”.
