At the IBIE the French language prevails. Let's face it it is an international exposition. From hand tools to high volume industrial applications, and equipment the IBIE has something to offer for everyone at all levels. The shear scale of this industry gathering is well in character with the scale of Las Vegas architecture - HUGE!!
From sil-pat sheets, flexi-molds, to machinery (the size of buses) that produce thousands of pastries, and food items at the touch of computerized switch the show offers countless solutions in this comprehensive event for the industry, industry suppliers, and engineers of industry driven solutions to gather.
Food highlights included our visit to International Foods & Ingredients, Inc. purveyors Chef Werner Schanzl, creations of desserts featuring the line of fruit purees, chocolate show piece work by Chef Bruno Couret and reacquaintence with Sales Director Paerick Dubreil. (see photos)
