Navigating Together
Through Uncertainty

In this IBIE blog post, Emily Bowers, the Senior Director of Education & Operations at BEMA offers insights on “Navigating Together Through Uncertainty.”  BEMA (Bakery Equipment Manufacturers & Allieds), is a  co-sponsor of IBIE, along with the American Baker’s Association and Retail Bakers of America. Last year, many of us walked away from IBIE 2019 armed with a bigger viewpoint and a broader concept of new ways to work together in the global grain-based foods industry. As 2019 wrapped and 2020 began, we sought new ways to put this wisdom into action. Yet no one expected how quickly we’d put… Read more →

Meet the Future of Baking –
IBIE’s new Student Immersion Program

IBIE’s new Student Immersion Program helps up-and-comers kickstart their careers. It’s no secret that workforce development is a major challenge in today’s baking industry. At IBIEducate we learned that 78 percent of baking companies are reporting a shortage of employees and at IBIE 2019 we awarded BEST in Baking industry awards to companies that are working to tackle this important issue. In addition, we’re working to create a strong workforce in the future through our new Student Immersion Program, which gives emerging industry professionals a taste of the industry and tools to kickstart their careers. Sixteen rising stars were selected… Read more →

A Spotlight on Sustainability

BREAKING BREAD WITH
OUR INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS

Dating back to ancient times, bread has been a universal staple of life in every corner of the world—nourishing us, comforting us, and bringing us together. The unifying power of bread was especially apparent at iba in Munich, Germany last month, where visitors from 167 countries walked the show floor looking for the newest trends and technologies in baking. Since global growth is a key priority for IBIE (aka the International Baking Industry Exposition), the team expanded its footprint onsite, met with dozens of international partners, spotted trends, and spread the word about our 2019 event. Iba is always held… Read more →

A Rich History of
Reinvestment

At its foundation, IBIE is committed to connecting and growing the global baking industry. And it all happens with your support, when you’re an attendee or exhibitor at the Baking Expo™. But the efforts to advance the industry extend far beyond those days we gather in Las Vegas. As the only non-profit event in the industry, IBIE’s executive committee is always working to serve the greater good. One way we do this is by reinvesting trade show profits through a variety of channels, resulting in widespread benefits. From our support of the Grain Foods Foundation’s consumer education efforts, to our… Read more →

A Smarter Approach
to Fresh-Baked Ideas

As we plan our IBIE 2019 education program, I have been reflecting on IBIE 2016, the ideas and the speakers that made an impact on our global audience. I was thinking how even since then, the industry has changed. That’s why every three years, we put together a comprehensive program that spotlights the current trends, best practices and powerful innovations shaping the business of baking. As we release our IBIE 2019 Call for Proposals, I am excited to welcome this new wave of information, innovation and best practices that will impact the next 3 years. Our shared goal of growing,… Read more →

A Bigger Bite
of the International Pie

For 2019, IBIE’s focus is about being bigger and better. Sure, we want to generate excitement around our growing global trade show, but this also reflects what’s happening currently. The international presence is on the rise with IBIE 2016’s attendees representing more than 100 countries and more than 30 percent of total attendance. We want to keep that momentum rolling. How does IBIE make that happen? Well, as I’ve now passed the gavel of IBIE Chairman to Joe Turano, my next role allows me to personally get involved in our global expansion—as international task force chair I’ll be 100% focused… Read more →
