London Chocolate Show

London Chocolate Show
The Salon du Chocolat (Chocolate Show) is a series of trade fairs dedicated to chocolate and the chocolate industry. The event was founded in Paris in 1994 and has since expanded to other cities across the world including London, New York, Tokyo, Milan, Brussels, and Moscow. The London Chocolate Show was inaugurated in 2013. It is held every October at the Olympia exhibition center in West Kensington.

Each year, the Chocolate Show in London brings together British and international brands as well as renowned cocoa experts, chefs and artisans. The event attracts over 15,000 attendees who come here to share their passion for chocolate. The program of the show features live demonstrations, chocolate cookery classes, pastry workshops and even the Chocolate Fashion Show.

The Chocolate Theater is one of the show’s main attractions. Here, top chocolatiers and pastry chefs from different countries treat visitors with live demonstrations of the art and craft of chocolate making. They share useful tips and techniques for you to try at home and teach visitors how to create their own chocolate delights. The live demonstrations do not require additional admittance fees, they are open to all visitors on a first-come, first-served basis.

The show’s philosophy and motto is “To understand the chocolate is to love it”. All attendees who want to understand and learn to appreciate the subtleties of chocolate are welcome to visit the Tasting Room where they can participate in talks and tastings held by experts. While the Tasting Room is designed for adults, the show’s Chocolate Club hosts fun and educational culinary activities for children. Here budding chefs and culinary artists can master their skills and have lots of fun.

Every year, the Salon du Chocolat London hosts the Chocolate Fashion Show. It brings together fashion designers and chocolatiers who collaborate to create stunning couture dresses inspired by and made from chocolate. The outfits are presented during the Gala Evening and at daily runway shows. They are also displayed at a dedicated exhibition throughout the festival.
