IBIE is set to bring the world of baking to Las Vegas in record numbers
The International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE), the Western Hemisphere’s largest baking industry event, is extending a special welcome to its growing global community of wholesale, retail and artisan bakers with a high-value international delegation program and other special onsite amenities.
More than 30 percent of IBIE’s attendance is international, representing more than 100 countries. With each passing show, the International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) continues to demonstrate its influence on the global grain-based foods industry. Its rapid growth in international participation has transformed IBIE into the global platform it is today, fostering the cross pollination of ideas, collaboration, and the formation of new business relationships.
“We know our international guests travel a long way and make a big investment in their participation so we want to ensure their planning and participation in IBIE is as easy as possible. Whether our international visitors have questions about international delegation discounts, the exhibition, the educational program, accommodations, registration or visa questions, we have dedicated international support ready to assist and accessible through the international page on the IBIE website,” said Anjia Nicolaidis, IBIE’s International Specialist.
IBIE continues to increase services and benefits for international guests and in 2019 is offering dedicated international support both before the show and onsite. Onsite, IBIE will offer registration counters reserved to serving international guests to facilitate easy check in and offer extra onsite support in the International Lounge making business meetings and networking easy with amenities such as complimentary Wi-fi, refreshments and translators on hand to help overcome any language barriers.
International visitors are encouraged to visit the international and foreign language pages of www.IBIE2019.com for additional information, how to join or organize a delegation and to register.
