IBIE, the International Baking Industry Exposition, takes place every three years. The show spans nearly 700,000 gross square feet of space with over 1,000 exhibitors, displaying every product and service there is that pertains to the baking industry. The show is expected to draw over 23,000 baking professionals. The International Baking Industry Exposition is the largest trade show held in the Western Hemisphere and it showcases the industry’s latest technologies, equipment and new product introductions.
IBIE is produced by the International Baking Industry Exposition LLC and supported by the American Bakers Association (ABA), BEMA and the Retail Bakers of America. IBIE was founded in 1920 by ABA and BEMA to provide a forum to connect bakers with suppliers to further the good of the industry. Proceeds from the show are invested back into the industry.

The show is open. You do not have to be in the baking industry to attend IBIE 2019, however, IBIE is designed for trade professionals in the grain-based foods industry–it is not a consumer show. We highly encourage food manufacturers and suppliers in the industry to attend. All guests (except children) are welcome to attend the show, although guests and spouses are not complimentary. All attendees are subject to the registration fee. If you are not in the industry, please select the “Allied/Other” registration category when you register.
What is the dress/attire?
The dress code varies from business attire to business casual to casual based on the business you plan to conduct at the show. Shirt and shoes are required of course; comfortable, covered shoes are recommended – IBIE is a big show with a lot of floor space to cover! We suggest dressing comfortably, but dress code is strictly a personal preference.
