  • Fannie May Chocolates

    About Retailer: For nearly a century, Fannie May Chocolates has been bringing you the finest gourmet chocolates, fudge, and candies that have kept us as your favorite traditional chocolate store. 

    About Exhibitor: Great design has always come first at The Trade Group. Since 1986, we’ve believed, “If you can capture an eye … you can open a mind,” and we translate that belief for every client – big or small – every time.

    The concept: Flying over the City of Chocolate
    This window uses foam cutouts to create Chicago’s cityscape, along with a model of Buckingham Fountain “jetting” colorful chocolate candies made from wax. Two of the “buildings” in the cityscape make use of The Trade Group’s Digital Display Blocks – modular and configurable LED screens showcasing videos of scrumptious chocolate and candies.

    The concept: Sweet Spring Rain
    Custom fabric umbrellas help depict a spring show of chocolates over a picnic of Chicago’s favorite sweet treat. Wax chocolates are suspended via strings of monofilaments. Below the umbrellas are several boxes and picnic baskets of beautifully-packaged chocolates.
