Countdown for key iba.Connecting Experts sector event
A wide range of industry insights for the bakery, confectionery and snacks sector will be exchanged at the online iba.Connecting Experts event between 25-28 October, writes Neill Barston.
The virtual journey starts with the iba globe and its four pillars: Connect, Discover, learn and entertain, with the event pivoting online ahead of its return to a live format in Munich in March 2023.
Under the event banner of Connect, participants can gain valuable networking with communities around the globe. Under Discover, participants can look forward to product presentations and individual consultations from exhibitors like KOMA Cooling & Conditioning, Forbo Siegling GmbH, Maquinaria Viñas S.L. and Bundy Baking Solutions.
On top of this, Albert Handtmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG will be offering a video demonstration of their products. The innovation booths by Marel TREIF GmbH, Somengil S.A., MIWE Michael Wenz GmbH or Rademaker, among others, will provide insight into the future of the baking industry.
The focus here will mainly be on new features, sustainability and energy efficiency. Powerful industry expertise: specialist presentations with live Q&A sessions
Furthermore, the Learn pillar offers participants specialist presentations from the baking industry for the baking industry. Both exhibitors and partners will be speaking – including Gira, AIBI, Rabobank and Prof. Dr. Klaus Lösche from Northern Food Tec GmbH (NFT) in various languages and time zones.
Participants can interact with Bernd Kütscher in real time at the live presentation by the Akademie Deutsches Bäckerhandwerk Weinheim on 28 October. There will also be a number of presentations with extra ‘Live Q&A’ sessions. An additional window will open up for participants at the end where they can get directly into a live conversation with the speaker. This is how iba.Connecting Experts offers a double advantage in the virtual room: not only specialist presentations but also a worldwide live exchange with the experts, independently of place and time.
Meanwhile, the Entertain section will also be offering a new feature. Standing on the back of a pick-up truck and racing through the woods while happily baking a tarte flambée isn’t possible, you say? Participants at iba.Connecting Experts can see for themselves. The Wildbakers – Jörg Schmid and Johannes Hirth – take baking fans with them on their journey of traditional know-how combined with original and progressive ideas. All online presentations, the complete list of dates as well as the link to register can be found under connecting.iba.de/.
