Vancouver – Bakery, restaurant, food service and grocery chain operators will have a chance to network with suppliers at the Baking Association of Canada’s Bakery Congress 2017 in Vancouver in April.

The trade show and industry conference will take place April 23 and 24 in Vancouver at the downtown Vancouver Convention Centre East – Hall B, with almost 50,000 square feet of exhibit space.

The trade show floor is the place to see products in action and meet the people behind them. For two days representatives from bakeries (commercial, retail and in-store), food service (restaurants, cafés, pizzerias) and grocery chains will have the opportunity to meet face to face with the people who truly understand the bakery business.

Bakery Congress provides a host of opportunities for bakers to connect with new and current suppliers, discover new trends and products while staying on top of what is happening in the baking industry.


The conference program includes four topics designed to assist baking industry leaders:
·      Employing Millennials: Today’s Challenges with Tomorrow Leaders
·      Successful Retailing in Today’s Bakery Market
·      What’s Happening and Where Do We Go from Here
·      Responding to the Changing Demands of Today and Tomorrow

Bakery Congress is also about offering networking and social business-to-business opportunities. With this in mind, the BAC’s BC Chapter will present An Evening at the Historic Terminal City Club, a perfect occasion to meet up with old friends and be introduced to new ones on the Sunday evening of the show.

As a special feature we have added a new baked goods demonstration area on the trade show floor that will offer hourly presentations featuring the students of baking programs from Vancouver Island University and Vancouver Community College, along with special guests.
