Sweet Fest Business Convention is back in Atlanta, September 21-24, 2017! This is not your every ay cake show. Sweet Fest Con is aimed at helping aspiring and established professionals in the baking and sweets industry! Whether you make cakes, cookies, or candies, Sweet Fest Con can give you valuable tools to start, grow, and manage your business successfully!
At the 2017 Sweet Fest Con, Chef Nicholas was honored to be one of the seminar presenters; his discussion topic was branding and sponsorship. No surprise there- Chef Nicholas is the Brand Ambassador for Renshaw Americas! As one of the 2017 Sweet Fest Business Convention sponsors, Renshaw Americas is pulling out all of the stops! EACH AND EVERY conference attendee will be participating in a Renshaw Academy hands-on class!! Playing with all of the exciting Renshaw Americas products? Um, yes please!
This fantastic masterclass will be taught but not only Chef Nicholas, but also Reva Alexander-Hawk (a Renshaw Brand Associate Partner)! On Friday, September 22, Chef Nicholas and Reva will be teaching three fabulous cookie and cupcake toppers! Every attendee at the conference will have the opportunity to create a classic rose, a seasonal pumpkin, and an adorable unicorn! Because the class is hands-on, you will be able to take everything you create home with you! I am most excited about the unicorn! It is so cute!!
A huge thank you and shout out to Renshaw Americas for sponsoring this amazing class, so that everyone attending Sweet Fest Con can try the amazing line of Renshaw Americas products, AND have the opportunity two learn from two supremely talented instructors!
Now, Sweet Fest Con has much more to offer! The four masterclass business topics this year are: Accounting Basics & Closing the Deal, Home Based Business Essentials, Delivering your Clients' Dreams, Managing Unexpected Issues, Opening a Storefront, Photography Fundamentals, Contracts & Customer Service, Live Stream without Fear, and Legal Dish on Baking with Booze.
There will also be amazing social events including the Thursday night Skills Share-a-thon, and the Saturday night Dance Party Social! This year's theme is Revenge of the Sweet Nerds, so be sure to dress in your nerdy best!
