SIBP highlights

Chef competition

The Ultimate Bakery and Pastry Chef Competition will feature regional and global confectioners coming together to showcase their exemplary baking skills. Organised by the World Association of Chef’s Societies (WACS) and hosted by the world-renowned chef Thomas Gugler, it's an enticing event sure to catch the attention and appreciation of the food-loving crowd at SIBP. The colourful and delicious baked treats will be drizzled with a tinge of competitive spirit.

Business matchmaking program

As productive and rewarding as it is to circle the crowds, network with other chefs and pastry professionals, sample vibrant sweets, and find top-of-the-line cooking tech - we all know how exhausting it can be to walk miles inside large expos. Thankfully SIBP will be having a Business Matchmaking Program, an in-house service guaranteed to make it easier for visitors and exhibitors to find exactly what they're looking for at the event.

The program will facilitate meetings by matching you with candidates from your search criteria when you register. Easy as pie.


Expect fascinating and informative workshops and seminars from industry leaders and cooking experts. Witness chefs and confectioners share secrets of their most popular recipes, explore global food trends, present new cooking products, and demonstrate innovative baking technology. Attendees to the training workshops will receive official certificates issued by the organisers.

It's the perfect destination where everyone in baking wants to be, strategically located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where the local bakery industry is expected to see continuous growth over the next few years.
