Hot Times in Vegas
Maybe all of the fear and loathing got the baking industry motivated. Despite the odds, IBIE came out a winner. Even the weather cooperated, for the most part. Temperatures ran in the cool 90s, rather than the 115?F range the week before when water-guzzling exhibitors were setting up for IBIE, which is co-sponsored by the American Bakers Association and BEMA, the baking industry suppliers' association. It even rained and stormed during the show, which cooled off the town, but unfortunately flooded out a couple exhibitors' booths when a storm sewer backed up. Hopefully, they got their money back.
