Vendor testimonials from previous shows:

On the chocolate festival scale, this one is a 10!
Ethan The Tea Room Chocolates, Culver City, CA

You did an absolutely fabulous job in both promoting this show and hosting it. I have never done a first time show that was so well organized. I have already told my daughter, who reps a variety of chocolate lines, that they must be represented next year at your show. She is kicking herself for not being there this year.
Cheri Neito Cheri's Boutique, Boulder CO

Congratulations on putting together a show outstanding for its organization, management, public relations and political acumen.
Karen Day Izzybelle Chocolate LLC

I’ve been to a lot of chocolate festivals, and you have outdone yourself. This is great!
Oliver Kita New York

Jannis Machen Forget-Me-Nots

Thank you for a great Chocolate Fest. I received great feedback from my clients.
Deanna Gloyd

As a vendor, this was the most incredible show I have ever been a part of, I made quality contacts and can’t wait to be a part of next years chocolate festival! Seriously, you have got to be the best event person I’ve ever met!
Monica Hackman PartyLite

I don’t remember attending or working a first time show that had the foot traffic this show did. Goes to show you truly know how to advertise a first time event. The foot traffic was phenomenal both Friday evening and Saturday. I also thought the entertainment you brought in was top notch. You truly set the atmosphere with the jazz band on Friday night and all the “family oriented” activities on Saturday. Having the Brownie troop judge the brownie cook-off was so creative. Once again thank you for the opportunity to share my Homemade Gourmet products with the Chocolate Festival attendees.
Amy Herrick

So many smiles, so little time. The atmosphere was just like the chocolate. Simply delicious! The place was filled with people as soon as the doors opened and I made just as much money on this show as I make when I travel long distances and work 3 day shows. Awesome job Dana.
Lisa Steincke Faerie Gathering

The event was very well organized, the attendance and entertainment was great. I will be back next year.
Renay Crain Crain’s Creations

It was a wonderful Chocolate Festival – so much fun and laughter, not to mention chocolate. I commend you for a job well done! Thanks again for a great job. The music was wonderful, the atmosphere light and fun, and we loved being a part of this.
Bobbi Thompson Wellness Spa on 5th Ave.

I had a ball and buzzin’ with business… a wonderful event… a wonderful crowd!
Phebe Delaney Catnip Manor

The Chocolate Festival surpassed my expectations. As a pioneer in a first time event it could have been risky to be a participant, however it was well organized, set up beautifully and well attended. As a promoter Dana Cain knows how to publize events to reach the public. I plan to be a participant for the next three years she has committed to at the Merchandise Mart in Denver.
Myrna Lou Goldbaum Palmist/Psychic/Author

Amadeus was thrilled to be a vendor participant. Our nut selections were very well received. We were impressed with not only the superior planning and organization of the show but also the enthusiastic response of the engaging attendees. Congratulations!
Erich Baumann Owner, Amadeus Nut Co.

Bravo, lady, for putting on such a fabulous show! Well organized, well advertised, and well attended.
Donna Peterson Helena, MT

The varied and unerring talents exhibited in delivering the annual Colorado Chocolate Festival has earned it a secure place as a leading annual Denver event.
