THE RESULTS ARE IN: Live Events Can Be Held Safely

Many things have changed since the Baking Expo™ took place in September 2019. For our industry, those changes included shifting safety and sanitization best practices, grappling with multifaceted supply chain challenges, and appreciating our collective ingenuity more profoundly. Something else changed, too — perceptions about in-person gatherings, like trade shows and expos.   IBIE’s triennial cycle meant that we didn’t have another live event on the calendar until 2022.
