After unprecedented disruptions in the industry, anticipation is high for the industry to return to the Baking Expo, which will showcase new consumer, technology and business trends.
Expectations are very high for IBIE this year, for organizers and attendees. Given the current challenges, this is probably the most important show in the last decade, with the industry looking to IBIE for new automation solutions, equipment to help bypass supply chain issues, and training opportunities, as the workforce issues are more stringent than ever. Organization-wise, there have been significant changes in how the planning and the execution of the show were managed. Planning sessions were exclusively done remotely, but everyone is eager to meet face to face and see new solutions directly.
