WASHINGTON — Booth space for IBIE 2019, a triennial event sponsored by the American Bakers Association, the Baking Equipment Manufacturers and Allieds and the Retail Bakers of America, is now open. The event’s organizers said 81% of the available space already has been sold to sponsoring association members and exhibitors who participated in the 2016 event.

IBIE provides a forum for manufacturers and suppliers to showcase their equipment, supply and ingredient solutions to more than 23,000 baking professionals from around the world, debut their new technologies and innovation, and build meaningful business relationships across all segments of the grain-based food industry.

“With a 65% increase in attendance over the past decade, IBIE is undoubtedly experiencing an exciting growth trajectory,” said Joe Turano, chairman of IBIE. “As plans come together for IBIE 2019, not only can attendees anticipate 1,000-plus exhibitors in a sold-out show floor, but they can also look forward to a most valuable and unique experience that covers a diverse range of products and trends representative of the baking community — from artisan to wholesale, pizza to snacks and all specialties in between.”

IBIE 2019 is scheduled for Sept. 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas. For more information on exhibiting click here.
