Prizes for pastry decoration and bakery window displays are up for grabs at the upcoming IBA international bakery exhibition in Düsseldorf.
The show from October 3-9 will host a competition for apprentices organised by the Association of German Con-fectioners, for the best decorated gateaux, and for sales staff to find the most appealing bakery display window.
The IBA Cup, an international competition for bakers and confectioners, will also take place at the exhibition, along with factory tours to give foreign visitors an insight into German bakeries, while seminars and discussion forums will highlight future industry trends.
More than 990 companies have booked over 123,000 sq m for the show, which is set to be larger than the last one in 2006.
