BakingTECH is the Best Week in Baking, which provides premier educational and networking events for baking professionals.

We are excited to announce that BakingTECH is officially returning to an in-person format in Chicago in 2022 – marking the return of The Best Week in Baking next year!  BakingTECH 2022 will continue its tradition of providing world-class education and networking for the commercial baking industry.  BakingTECH heads back to the Hilton Chicago on March 1 – 3, 2022.

New in 2022, the agenda will feature full programs attracting professional bakers in the Retail Bakery/Emerging Wholesale Bakery and Industry/Commercial Bakery segments, and the speaker roster is being formulated.  Conference tracks are set to explore a multitude of topics such as Ingredient Technology, Engineering, Marketing/Sales, Artisan Baking and a focus for retail bakers transitioning to wholesale and scaling to increase production.

Beyond the educational content of the program, attendees and exhibitors will be able to re-connect and establish relationships at the MarketPlace Table-Top tradeshow which is expected to bring in 170+ ingredient and equipment suppliers and services providers. During BakingTECH 2022 attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in in-person Braindates, which offer knowledge sharing conversation and networking in a group or one-on-one setting.


Online and advance registration for BakingTECH 2022 will open in September 2021.
