IBIE 2013, to be held Oct. 6 to 9 in Las Vegas, is offering more than 70 seminars, now organized into five
targeted tracks that include: AIB technical, retail and foodservice, business management and marketing, ingredient trends and formulations and hands-on cake and pastry decorating.

The education program begins on Saturday, Oct. 5, with the RPIA Group’s Business of Baking for Beginners workshop

All other educational seminars will be held during show days, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., with a selection of hands-on sessions taking place in
the evenings. Several of the seminars will be available in Spanish.
