They thought it was a great first stop for the startup entrepreneur thinking about going into the candle business all the way up to the mature candle manufacturer of finished candle products. The appearance of an expo where every step of candle making business could be found and sourced. Manufacturers and suppliers worldwide attended” says Jim Hall, Candle Packaging USA, and President.
