All Things Baking
is Bigger and Better
in Texas
Slidell, Louisiana – All Things Baking, an innovative trade
event for forwardthinking retail and culinary professionals,
will hold its second show in Houston, Texas, September
9-11, 2012. Building on a successful launch in Chicago last
fall, All Things Baking 2012 expects to attract more than
3,000 food service professionals looking for cutting-edge
education, essential networking opportunities and the latest
product trends, equipment and supplies to help them stay
competitive, profitable and ahead of consumer trends. “We
are very pleased that Houston will host All Things Baking
this year,” said Susan Nicolais, RBA Executive Director.
“Houston is an incubator for entrepreneurial bakeries and
has become a world-class trade show destination with a
track-record for growing events that rotate into the region.”
All Things Baking will rotate around the country
annually, except on IBIE years when it will not hold
a standalone event. The move to Houston has been
received positively by key exhibitors who have already
secured their space for 2012. The new location is seen as
an unprecedented opportunity to reach decision makers
from regional businesses who historically have not
traveled outside of the region – including the growing
number of panaderías. Exhibitors such as AB Mauri,
Baker’s Best, Dawn Food Products, LVO Manufacturing
and Revent, Inc. will showcase their latest equipment and
technology, decorating supplies, ingredients and flavorings,
merchandising supplies, bakeware and molds.
The education program also features some notable
locals, including Sara Brook of the Dessert Gallery who
will present a live case study on the social media strategies
used to drive in-store traffic. Texas native Bud “the Pieman,”
founder of the legendary Royers Café, will demonstrate
the art of making pies. His pies have been featured on CBS
Sunday Morning with Bill Giest, ABC Nightline, Food
Network numerous times and most recently on the History
Channel. The program will also feature several Spanish
language classes and Hispanic baking demonstrations.

event details, including educational sessions, participating
exhibitors, competitions and demonstrations. For exhibit
