Satisfactory booking situation for südback 2022

Planning has already started / Attended event for the bakery and confectionery trades from 22 to 25 October 2022

There will be four exciting days for the bakery trade next year: since its première in 1978, südback has become one of the most important meeting points for the bakery and confectionery trades. Its appeal has long extended beyond the borders of Germany. südback will take place again from 22 to 25 October 2022 after an enforced break and will make a great impression with its unique mixture of a product show, information and an accompanying programme.

Great interest in südback 2022

“The booking level is already more than satisfactory with a large number of registrations. We are clearly seeing how much our exhibitors are looking forward to direct technical discussions with customers and interested trade visitors,” said Andreas Wiesinger, a member of the Board of Management of Messe Stuttgart. “Together with the BÄKO head office of southern Germany, the State Association of Guilds of Württemberg Bakers and the State Association of Guilds of Baden-Württemberg Confectioners, we are working flat out with motivation to implement südback 2022. In close cooperation with the exhibitors and partners, we are organising südback in 2022 in order to offer the bakery trade the long desired platform for personal exchanges after the break caused by the pandemic,” added Wiesinger.

Gunter Hahn, Managing Director of the BÄKO head office of southern Germany, also underlined the importance of südback as a meeting point for the industry: “After difficult times the following applies all the more so: südback will be one of the most important events next year for BÄKO. The bakery trade needs this trade fair as a catalyst for innovative ideas, concepts and new developments on our market. That is creating enthusiasm for südback among exhibitors, visitors and naturally everyone at BÄKO.”

Stefan Körber, Managing Director of the State Association of Guilds of Württemberg Bakers, also stated: “südback 2022 will be one of the highlights for the German bakery trade. Really every participant in the bakery trade – whether company proprietors or bakery employees – will meet exhibitors here again, hold discussions and move the entire industry forward. It is vital that everyone now creates the freedom to come to südback 2022 in Stuttgart. Exhibitors and visitors have a profound need for human interaction and personal contacts, but also to discover new innovations after such a long time.”

Accompanying programme featuring numerous highlights

One of the mainstays of südback is its wide-ranging accompanying programme which offers various opportunities for technical discussions and networking. New technologies are demonstrated, ideas are examined and tasty recipes are presented in both the Bakers’ Forum and the Confectioners’ Trend Forum. Klaus Vollmer, Master of the State Association of Guilds of Baden-Württemberg Confectioners, is looking to the future with optimism: “We, the confectioners’ family, are looking forward to meeting colleagues. We want to hold personal discussions again with business partners and colleagues during the Confectioners’ Trend Forum and in our training competition. südback is the most important trade fair, marketplace and exchange platform for our organisation. We missed this in the last two years.”
