2018 RCI Fall Regional Conference


Thank you for your interest in presenting at Retail Confectioners International's 2020 Annual Convention & Industry Expo in Pittsburgh, PA. We appreciate your commitment to advance the industry through thought-provoking education.

Please review the following information before submitting your presentation: 

  • All sessions are scheduled to take place on June 17, 2020.

  • 50-minute sessions are available which will take place in meeting rooms at the Convention Center. Longer or shorter sessions may be available upon request. Session length includes time for participant question and answer.

  • The audience is comprised primarily of candy store owners and staff who work in their businesses. To be a candy maker member of RCI, companies must, both, manufacture and retail their products. The majority of the attendees will be from the United States, but members from Canada will also likely be present. The median age is 45-50 years old, and they learn best from hands-on presentations with visual aids and enjoy opportunities to interact.

  • All presentations must comply with federal copyright infringement laws. No materials copied from other resources without the express written consent by the author may be submitted for RCI events. If a presenter wishes to use materials from a publication, another conference or a source not directly written by the presenter, a copy of written consent to use and copy the material must be provided to the RCI office with your materials.
