The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) recently was honoured as a top trade show in the United States.
The show was ranked one of the 50 best trade shows in the U.S. this spring by Trade Show News Network and named a Gold 100 Honoree by Trade Show Executive magazine.
A showcase for baking technology, equipment, ingredients and supplies for baking professionals, IBIE 2013 hosted 21,000 attendees from 100 countries.
“Expanding show offerings was a key initiative for IBIE 2013,” explained current IBIE chairman Michael Cornelis in a release. “This past year’s show incorporated a revamped education program, new contests, an innovation showcase to celebrate new products in the industry and a boost in the numbers of international exhibitors and attendees. We put a lot of hours into improving every aspect of IBIE, and it is an honor to be recognized for our success.”
The show invests proceeds back into the grain-based food industry in the form of legislative advocacy, consumer marketing campaigns promoting the health benefits of grain-based foods, and programs that advance the knowledge of those employed in or entering the baking business.
The next IBIE show is slated to run from Oct. 8-11, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. To learn more about IBIE, visit www.ibie2016.org
