March 16, 2017 — The Baking Association of Canada’s Bakery Congress returns to Vancouver, B.C., April 23-24.

Attendee registration is open now at The event promises to be bigger and better this year at the downtown Vancouver Convention Centre East, Hall B, with almost 50,000 square feet of exhibit space. The trade show floor is the place to see products in action and meet the people behind them.

For two whole days, representatives from bakeries (commercial, retail and in-store), food service (restaurants, cafes, pizzerias) and grocery chains will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the people who truly understand the bakery business. Bakery Congress provides a host of opportunities for bakers to connect with new and current suppliers, discover new trends and products while staying on top of what is happening in our dynamic baking industry.

The conference program provides numerous topics designed to assist baking industry leaders:

  • Employing Millennials: Today’s Challenges with Tomorrow’s Leaders
  • Successful Retailing in Today’s Bakery Market
  • What’s Happening and Where Do We Go from Here
  • Responding to the Changing Demands of Today and Tomorrow

Bakery Congress is also about offering networking and social B-to-B business opportunities. The BAC’s B.C. Chapter is therefore delighted to present An Evening at the Historic Terminal City Club, the premiere social and networking event for the Sunday evening. This is a perfect occasion to meet up with old friends and be introduced to new ones.

As a special feature we have added a new baked goods demonstration area on the trade show floor that will offer hourly presentations featuring the students of baking programs from Vancouver Island University and Vancouver Community College, along with special guests.
