The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) will be opening its doors at the Las Vegas Convention Center between September 7 through to September 11, 2019.

There are many new features planned this year, from new show floor areas dedicated to the artisan bread industry to the most robust “IBIEducate” program to-date. IBIE is, of course, an international bakery expo, so that attendees will experience opportunities to connect with a broad range of industry professionals from all over the world.

As this event date approaches, the organizers asked bakers from the IBIE planning committee what they’re most looking forward to at IBIE 2019. Joe Turano, president of the Turano Baking Company, and IBIE chair stated in a press release:

“The IBIE Committee has been working hard to ensure we’re delivering maximum value to IBIE attendees, and I’m personally looking forward to our new offerings around the artisan movement. The two Artisan Marketplaces in the exhibit hall will bring together the biggest names in baking and feature unique, interactive experiences sure to inspire artisan and specialty bakers and further the passion for their craft.”

IBIE has increased their learning floors and added more educational elements to this year’s event. “The learning opportunities at IBIE are incomparable—both on the show floor through conversations with suppliers and in the classroom through educational sessions,” added Dave Watson, vice president of Campbell Soup Company/Pepperidge Farm, in the same press release.

“In fact, IBIEducate will have its largest program ever in 2019 and is now the most comprehensive training opportunity anywhere in the baking industry. My team will specifically be looking forward to the new dedicated day of education on Saturday before the exhibit hall opens. It’s the most efficient and effective way to stay on top of the major issues we’re facing every day.”
