IBA 2021 has been officially cancelled, but bakers and confectioners will be glad to know that the countdown has begun for IBA 2023. The new dates have been set for October 22nd – October 23rd, 2023 at Messe München in Munich, Germany. GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH in its role as organiser for the trade show has revealed that the reason for the cancellation is the main uncertainty that big events won’t still be banned due to the coronavirus pandemic. As with many other major trade shows offering digital formats and hybrid events, IBA intends on not letting the year go to waste and will host iba.Connecting Experts in October 2021. But a digital meeting does not compare to meeting face to face with buyers. The next live IBA 2023 will be busier than ever, so be sure to book your exhibition stand!
IBA is considered the true meeting point for baking and confectionary professionals in Europe that has a broad appeal and a wide reach. The international trade show regularly brings in buyers from beyond European markets thanks to its commitment to innovations and advancements. Another reason for the event’s success is the fact that it covers every link in the processing chain from the equipment to the product to the logistics aspect of the business. Based in Munich, Germany, IBA runs for five days out of the exhibition halls of Messe München. Editions are held every tree years and each new IBA feels exciting, fresh and rewarding. It’s an ideal place to reestablish contacts and experience world trends in real time. IBA gives you all and then some.
We’ve already mentioned the richness in products on display at IBA. The exhibition halls host all major product categories from raw materials and ingredients, and frozen products to packaging and food service and equipment to shop fittings, furnishings and sales, air-conditioning technology and ventilation. It’s why IBA remains the one-stop event for buyers, who want to purchase every single thing they need for their business in one place. Brand names worth mentioning are LOBBI, BAKON food equipment, Boyens Backservice, Edhard Corp., Eloma, Eurocas and Franke Coffee Systems. It’s no surprise then to learn the professional audience spans every part of the industry. The list is long – hygiene inspectors, nutritionists, sweets makers, shop owners, wholesalers and retailers, artisanal and supply bakeries, equipment manufacturers, confectioners, teachers, caterers, hoteliers!
