Registration Opens for the Much Anticipated International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE)

Increased education offerings, new show features, new artisan pavilions and
a packed expo floor ensures IBIE 2019 will be like no other industry event

Washington, D.C.The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), commonly known as the Baking Expo™ and the Western Hemisphere’s largest baking industry event, opened registration with the announcement of enhanced and added show features. Over the past decade, IBIE has enjoyed a 65 percent increase in attendance and is on track to be bigger and better than ever with a nearly sold out show floor. When the show opens September 8-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada, the enlarged expo floor plan will host more than 1,000 exhibitors showcasing the latest in automation/technology, ingredients and industry trends across the vertical supply chain for every role and every segment of the grain-based food industry.

New in 2019, IBIE will launch IBIEducate, a full day of education on September 7, one day prior to the exhibit hall opening. This enhancement comes in consideration of attendee feedback. Now attendees can dedicate a full day to targeted education, designed to deliver valuable ideas and strategies to improve bakery products, optimize production and support business growth. Along with the additional day of learning, the IBIEducate line-up offers more classroom sessions, more hands-on sessions, more technical sessions as well as business sessions focusing on management and marketing topics. Sessions can be purchased individually or attendees can get unlimited access through the all-new ‘All Access Pass.’

“The IBIE Committee has been working hard to ensure we’re delivering maximum value to IBIE attendees at every step of their show experience and along the industry supply chain—whether they’re walking the show floor looking for the latest advancements or attending a hands-on demonstration in one of our new artisan marketplaces,” said Joe Turano, IBIE Chair. “Unlike smaller events, IBIE is the complete solution for our industry, produced by our industry. We continue to push the boundaries to ensure we’re advancing the grain-based food industry as a whole through the diverse and cutting-edge offerings that can be found at IBIE.”

IBIE will unveil two artisan marketplaces presented by Bread Bakers Guild of America and Puratos. These new state-of-the-art show floor destinations will introduce show elements specifically produced to support the growth of the artisan and specialty market segment. Curated competitions, staged demonstrations from celebrity chefs and Certified Master Bakers, tastings, expert Q&A sessions, exhibitor demonstrations and much more will bring the marketplaces to life.

BREAKING BREAD WITH OUR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS

Dating back to ancient times, bread has been a universal staple of life in every corner of the world—nourishing us, comforting us, and bringing us together. The unifying power of bread was especially apparent at iba in Munich, Germany last month, where visitors from 167 countries walked the show floor looking for the newest trends and technologies in baking. Since global growth is a key priority for IBIE (aka the International Baking Industry Exposition), the team expanded its footprint onsite, met with dozens of international partners, spotted trends, and spread the word about our 2019 event.

Iba is always held about one year in advance of IBIE, so it’s a great opportunity to touch base with international partners. For the first time, IBIE event producers arranged a roundtable discussion with the International Association of Plant Bakeries (AIBI), an association that represents 28 member countries across Europe. The group discussed common challenges, including consumption trends, zero waste initiatives and changes in the workforce. Members of the leadership teams will continue the dialogue at IBIE 2019 as they work together to advance the global grain-based foods industry.

IBIE also met with several of our international counterpart associations and media partners to solidify important agreements around both global marketing and education. Meetings were held against the backdrop of the newly upgraded IBIE Lounge, located within the U.S. Pavilion. IBIE’s presence also extended outside the Lounge as visitors could literally rise up the IBIE-branded stairs. They also donned IBIE-branded “Tyrolean” German hats at the iba Oktoberfest party. Lastly, IBIE shared some educational content from their world-renowned IBIEducate program at the iba SPEAKERS CORNER.

The show floor gave us a taste of what we might see at IBIE 2019. Digitization in baking was a key focus area, with applications including digital diagnostics, maintenance, scheduling, and performance and analytics tracking. Many exhibitors offered tools that allow for remote access, and there was also an increased emphasis on scaled artisan baking and in-booth hospitality. On the ingredients side, we’re likely to see offerings that help reduce sugar as well as more sophisticated fat and oil solutions.

Many exhibitors were already talking about their plans to unveil their new innovations at IBIE. If iba was any indication, IBIE is on track to be a resounding success.

Next stop: MOBAC, Feb. 20-23, 2018 in Tokyo Japan.

A Rich History of Reinvestment

At its foundation, IBIE is committed to connecting and growing the global baking industry. And it all happens with your support, when you’re an attendee or exhibitor at the Baking Expo™. But the efforts to advance the industry extend far beyond those days we gather in Las Vegas. As the only non-profit event in the industry, IBIE’s executive committee is always working to serve the greater good. One way we do this is by reinvesting trade show profits through a variety of channels, resulting in widespread benefits. From our support of the Grain Foods Foundation’s consumer education efforts, to our financial aid for AIB’s workforce development initiatives, and our general commitment to improving food safety and sustainability, we’re giving the grain-based industry a heart. We’re helping people lead healthier lives. And we’re making a significant impact on the future of baking professionals. That’s something we can all take pride in.

Take a look at just a few of the ways IBIE has reinvested in the industry growth and success over the past decade.
