Bakery Showcase 2019 is back in Montreal this May (5-6), at the Palais des Congrès, offering two days of business opportunities, and educational experiences. It will also showcase the baking industry’s talented works of art and feature the industry’s newest ideas, innovations, products, and services.
The trade show floor this year is 15% larger than the previous Montreal edition with exhibitors covering the whole bakery industry chain.
This year’s conference program was developed to cover the current baking industry regulatory overload and e-commerce on day one and day two will line up topics on what is trending in food – from clean label to cannabis, followed by a session addressing the critical labor shortages, the organizers – Baking Association of Canada (BAC) in partnership with the Quebec Bakery Council (CBQ) – say.
On the trade show floor, Sunday’s Feature Area will be “Custom Edible Creations” by Algonquin College. Attendees will discover one of the most exciting and satisfying ways to decorate a cake with Chef Catherine Beddall. She is a published pastry chef instructor from Algonquin College’s Baking and Pastry Arts program. An expert in crafting natural-looking flowers and figurines, Catherine will show you step-by-step how to create three different types of amazing, hand-shaped exotic flowers to help you understand the intricacies involved in creating these edible works of art.
On May 6, Monday’s Feature Area will be the Association des Boulangers Artisans du Québec showcasing “Works Of Art”. Artisan bakers will entertain delegates with demonstrations and activities that will captivate the interest of the floor’s diverse audience.
On Sunday (May 5) night the Conseil de Boulangerie Québec (CBQ) & Conseil de la transformation alimentaire du Québec (CTAQ) will be holding a special evening of cocktails and dinner featuring Chef Martin Juneau at the Société des Arts Technologiques (Society for Arts and Technology) new location.
