I.B.I.E.'s education program will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

WASHINGTON — The International Baking Industry Exposition (I.B.I.E.), the largest baking industry event in the Western Hemisphere, officially opened a call for speakers for its education program. The education program is scheduled to run Oct. 8-11, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The I.B.I.E. said it is looking for professional speakers, business experts, cake decorators and other industry professionals who have expert knowledge about the baking industry.

“This show brings together over 20,000 professionals from across the globe, and we understand that in this industry, there is a lot we can learn from each other,” said Andrea Henderson, chair of the I.B.I.E.’s Education Task Force. “In 2013, I.B.I.E. had more than 70 sessions, and we expect to bring in even more great content and speakers in 2016. Receiving a dynamic range of speakers and proposals for the 2016 show will help build an interactive educational program that offers insights across the entire baking industry spectrum.”

Those interested are welcome to propose topics such as new technology, working with millennials, marketing technology specific to the baking industry, the healthy eating movement or a topic related to the applicant’s specific expertise.
