Over the years the AIBI Congress has positioned itself as a prominent networking event for the bread value chain.

Following the difficult pandemic circumstances that have kept chain partners apart, the 37th edition of the Congress promises to revive its tradition in a unique professional and convivial atmosphere set in the stunning surrounds of Bled, the jewel in Slovenia’s crown.

The Congress offers a wide range of networking opportunities for all delegates and a small exhibition area for sponsors seeking to enhance their visibility.

AIBI and CCIS-CAFE, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia – Chamber of Agricultural and Food Enterprises, are teaming up to deliver and manage this event up to the standards delegates have come to expect.

AIBI Congress 2022 is taking place in Bled, Slovenia, the green heart of Europe. Bled is a world-renowned tourist gem lying on the edge of the Triglav National Park. With its glacial lake and island in the middle, a castle dating back to the 11th century and its mild, healing climate, it is a picture of paradise.

The congress venue is the Rikli Balance Hotel, which combines modern amenities and spa facilities set in a timeless landscape.
