Unfortunately, iba 2021 cannot take place in October 2021 as planned and will be postponed. The next trade fair is set to take place in Munich from 22 - 26 October 2023.

This is a result of there being no certainty that the trade fair will be able to maintain its international character - a decisive success factor for the event - and the need to provide the industry with a global offer and long-term planning. The preparations and planning that have already taken place for iba 2021 will be seamlessly transferred to the new date in 2023.

Despite the postponement of the trade fair, the organisers and the German Bakers' Confederation would like to bring the industry together in 2021 for a second time, this time on the usual iba date. From 25 - 28 October 2021 the second edition of the virtual networking and knowledge event iba.CONNECTING EXPERTS is set to take place. Please pre-register here.

The iba team can draw on the experience of the virtual event iba.CONNECTING EXPERTS, which was successfully held in mid-March 2021.



Susann Seidemann will take over the management of iba with immediate effect. She reports to Cathleen Kabashi, who is taking on new tasks within GHM as the Director Business Unit B2B trade fairs.


Thank you for participating from 15 - 17 March 2021 at the virtual networking and business platform iba.CONNECTING EXPERTS. The newly designed format was a complete success!
