This year’s International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), which is currently open for registration, will feature an enlarged expo floor plan hosting more than 1,000 exhibitors showcasing the latest in automation/technology, ingredients, and industry trends.

To help exhibitors navigate the exhibiting experience and maximize their return on investment at the show, IBIE is launching the first of its webinar series this week. This series that is free for IBIE exhibitors will better prepare them for what to expect Western Hemisphere’s largest baking industry event.

On Wednesday, January 30 at 1 p.m. CT, the first webinar will be available. Titled ‘How to Access and Use Your Exhibitor Console,’ it will provide an overview of the exhibitor badge registration process, access to the online Exhibitor Services Manual, submitting your mobile app listing, and more.

The Exhibitor Console gives exhibitors access to all pre-show order forms they will need to complete, in planning for their exhibit participation.

Three other webinars will take place leading up to the event. More information on them can be found here. Over the past decade, IBIE has enjoyed a 65 percent increase in attendance and is on track to be bigger and better than ever with a nearly sold out show floor.
