Registration Opens For Inagural International Artisan Bakery Expo  The International Artisan Bakery Expo (IABE) is announcing the opening of attendee registration for the inaugural event. The Artisan Bakery Expo will stage March 5-7, 2019 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Registration includes entry to all three days of the exposition as well as complimentary access to all educational seminars and demonstrations by renowned bakers.

The Artisan Bakery Expo is co-located alongside the renowned International Pizza Expo, which allows bakery attendees the ability to visit both show floors and attend the 90+ pizza-related on-floor demonstrations, educational seminars and networking events.

To curate a superior educational component, the Artisan Bakery Expo has partnered with the Bread Bakers Guild of America (BBGA) and American Cake Decorating Magazine (ACD) to design seminars and demonstrations for artisan bakers, led by artisan bakers.

The early bird rate for a three-day buyer pass is priced at $190/person through December 31, 2018. The advanced rate is offered until March 3rd at the rate of $220. Buddy/companion rates are also available.

“Compared to other industry events, the International Artisan Bakery Expo is not only a fresh concept aimed at today’s artisan baking community, it’s an unmatched value,” said Peter Lachapelle, Show Director. “We’re uniquely positioned to offer valuable content early enough in 2019 that businesses can be positively affected by what is learned at IABE.”
