The Sweets & Snacks Expo will be rotating between Indianapolis and Las Vegas over the next ten years. This was announced by organiser National Confectioners Association (NCA) as the show convenes to celebrate 25 years of candy and snack innovation.

Beginning in 2024, the Sweets & Snacks Expo will cycle through a rotation of two years at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, followed by one year at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas until 2032. In May, McCormick Place in Chicago will host the 2022 and 2023 Sweets and Snacks Expos.
„Indianapolis and Las Vegas are the right for our show. “
John Downs, president & CEO, NCA
"Indianapolis and Las Vegas are the right fit to meet the growing demand for our show and enable it to continue providing the innovation, insights and connections that the candy and snacks industries want and need", said John Downs, NCA president & CEO. "This decision is all about the show's future, and it was driven by our exhibitor and attendee community."

The decision to relocate the Sweets & Snacks Expo to Indianapolis and Las Vegas was made after careful deliberation by the Sweets & Snacks Expo Committee, which is chaired by Ferrero/Fannie May Confections vice president of sales and business development Ed Seibolt, and the NCA Board of Trustees. In 2021, the show relocated to Indianapolis because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
