The biennial conference returns after an almost two-year delay due to Covid-19. Ticket sales have also restarted with options to attend the full conference with both evening dinners or conference and day-one networking.
“The Association has committed to hosting the long-awaited CAA International Cocoa Conference & Dinner as the first major in-person event on the international cocoa calendar after a painful two -year delay,” said Alvin Lee, CAA Chairman.
Lee said the conference theme has also been appropriately set as ‘Resilience – Writing the Next Chapter of Asian Cocoa’ and the CAA will welcome experts from the region and across the world to “provide invaluable insights into crucial subjects that will shape our industry in the days to come”.
