IBIE’s Efforts to Think Bigger, Think Broader has
Resulted in Being Recognized with the Gold 100 Designation

Washington, D.C.— The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), commonly known as the Baking Expo™ and North America’s largest baking industry event, has been honored with the Trade Show Executive Gold 100 designation. This prestigious accolade signifies that IBIE is one of the 100 largest shows in the U.S. and is among the elite of the biggest and best exhibitions held in 2016.

IBIE received this recognition as a result of growing attendance and exhibitor numbers achieved at the 2016 show. 2016 marked a monumental year for IBIE as it was the largest show to date. The event welcomed 1,000 exhibitors—340 new to IBIE, representing a 28 percent increase over 2013 and spanned 700,000 square feet of exhibit space in the Las Vegas Convention Center. Attendance also showed an upward trend with 23,000 registered attendees—a 9 percent increase over 2013 and 65 percent increase over the last decade.

“Following an incredible 2016 show, we are thrilled to be recognized with this award,” said IBIE Chair, Joseph Turano, President of the Turano Baking Co. “A special thank you and acknowledgment must be given to the IBIE community—it is because of your support and passion for the industry that we have experienced this growth and are now being honored with this prestigious achievement. Being recognized in this way gives our team even more inspiration to build on the success for another record-setting show in 2019.”

IBIE is recognized as the grain-based food industry’s largest, most comprehensive trade event in the Western Hemisphere—bringing together the entire professional baking community every three years to launch new products, highlight the newest baking technology and showcase innovations in supply and ingredient solutions and equipment, allowing attendees to get everything they need, all in one place. IBIE provides unparalleled access to the tools and resources needed to maximize attendees’ baking business success, including the opportunity to connect with colleagues and learn from top baking and business professionals.

The IBIE team will receive the award during TSE Gold 100 Award Gala slated for September 27-29, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay outside San Francisco.

IBIE 2019 will be held September 8-11, with a full day of education on September 7. The show will stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Time to Start Getting Excited for IBIE 2016!

IBIE is one of my favorite weeks of the year—every day is packed with new and exciting experiences, and I’m continually amazed at how much the industry has evolved in the past three years since the last IBIE. It’s a thrill to see the most advanced industrial equipment up and running right on the show floor, and to check out the latest advances and trends across the entire industry, all at once. Plus the baking demos, catching up with old colleagues, building new relationships, meeting suppliers face-to-face—it’s business, education and entertainment all rolled into one. Invigorating, inspiring, energizing—and it reminds me of why I was drawn to the baking industry more than 25 years ago.
