IBIE Names Avant Food Media 2025 Gold Media Sponsor

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 12, 2024) The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), the Western Hemisphere’s largest event for the global grain-based foods industry, is proud to announce Avant Food Media as the exclusive Gold Media Sponsor for its triennial event, scheduled for Sept. 13-17, 2025, in Las Vegas.

Through its two titles, Commercial Baking and Craft to Crumb, Avant will provide in-book and online promotional advertising, editorial coverage and on-site programming. Although a newer entrant to the marketplace, Avant Food Media has quickly proven to be a valuable promotional partner for IBIE. Their products, such as the IBIE Monthly Newsletter, Booth Trailers, IBIE Show Guide and Innovation Minutes, played a pivotal role in promoting IBIE 2022.

Jorge Zarate, IBIE chairman and Grupo Bimbo senior vice president of global operations and engineering emphasized the significance of strategic partnerships with industry media in expanding the event’s outreach and communicating its value to broader, more diverse audiences. He noted, “Working with Avant Food Media gives us access to highly engaged, senior baking professionals as well as the hard-to-reach retail market.” He added, “In a short amount of time, they’ve become a trusted industry voice and an innovator in media.” 

“As an official media partner, the Avant team will once again put our decades of experience and progressive approaches to work with our own media products, ultimately raising the bar on what’s possible for IBIE,” said Paul Lattan, president of Avant Food Media. “We know how important this event is to our industry, and we look forward to working with IBIE to make it the best one yet.”

Avant Food Media also maintains a cooperative agreement with leading euro-international baking publisher Food2Multimedia (f2m). With an eye on international markets, brot+backwaren and baking+biscuit international report on bakery trends, innovations and critical developments relating to raw materials, technology and processes — helping IBIE expand its growing international representation.
