Industry Relevance

IBA admits only professional visitors and takes place every three years. The trade fair dates back to 1949 and since then has been the major supporter of innovation across the entire confectionary, snacks and baking industry. Munich has seen thousands come to conduct business and stay aware of emerging market trends. The rise of IBA is all thanks to the wide-ranging product assortment on display. Product categories include disposable packaging, fans, flavors, baking agents, lactose-free products, production technology, raw materials, knives, labeling, microwaves, automated picking systems, back mats, baking sheets, vacuum equipment, vegan products and so much more. You have the entire process chain under one roof and that’s not an opportunity to miss out on. We have to mention the various award ceremonies and competitions like the German Championship of Master Bakers as a definite highlight.

As briefly touched upon above, IBA is an international affair at heart with European countries in the lead alongside Germany.
