5 Ways Speaking at IBIE 2025 Benefits You

You know baking — and what better place to share your knowledge than IBIE (a.k.a. the Baking Expo™), the grain-based food industry’s largest and most comprehensive trade event in the Western Hemisphere?

The real-life experiences and expertise of professionals like you are what makes IBIE’s world-renowned program, IBIEducate, one of the most valuable educational opportunities in the business, and the 2025 call for speakers is happening now. Check out a few of the biggest reasons why you should throw your hat in the ring, then submit your proposal by Aug. 30, 2024.

Benefits of speaking at IBIE INCLUDE:

  1. Increased Authority. Speaking at a prestigious event like IBIE instantly signals to your professional community that you are an expert in your field. That kind of credibility gives you a lot more than a nice line for your LinkedIn profile — it demonstrates to your peers, competitors and potential clients that you have important insights worthy of sharing on a global stage, which can open doors for your career and give you a competitive edge.
  2. Enhanced Knowledge. As an IBIE presenter, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to engage with other respected industry experts — which means, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to hear their unique perspectives on emerging market trends. And you’ll be spending a few days in the epicenter of the baking world, where you can see the latest technologies up close and get up-to-date information on hot topics like plant-based baking, direct-to-consumer sales, sustainability and more.
  3. New Leads and Partnerships. While IBIEducate sessions absolutely cannot be sales pitches in disguise (a rule that we take very seriously in order to maintain the integrity of the program), your name will be highly visible on the IBIE website, in the mobile app and directory, etc. IBIE speakers are no strangers to comments like, “I saw your session at IBIE and I think we should talk.” People want to work with knowledgeable people — so when you can demonstrate your expertise in a specific baking niche, invitations for consulting, partnership and sales opportunities tend to come your way.
  4. Exposure for Your Company. Your title and company name will also be highly visible in IBIE’s robust directory and promotional materials, which organically exposes your brand to a global audience (and the many media outlets in attendance). In an era when authenticity is key to customer acquisition and nobody wants to be hard sold to, this kind of visibility goes a long way toward endearing your brand to potential customers.  
  5. Good Vibes. Profits from IBIE are invested back into the industry, and the IBIEducate program is a huge draw for attendance. By contributing your knowledge, you’re helping baking professionals expand their own expertise so they can excel in their roles — and you’re helping continue IBIE’s reputation as a valuable resource, which leads to increased funding for industry initiatives. Good vibes all around!


In addition to these (and many other) benefits, presenters receive complimentary registration for IBIE 2025! That means you can check out the latest innovations in the expo and attend IBIEducate sessions at no cost to you. Select presenters may also be eligible for hotel and travel expense reimbursements, and/or compensation.

IBIE won’t return until 2028, so don’t wait to tap into this incredible opportunity. Key topics and submission details are available now — take a look and send in your proposal no later than Aug. 30, 2024 to be considered for a speaking spot at the next IBIE, which will take place Sept. 13-17, 2025. We can’t wait to learn about your fresh idea!
