Bakery Equipment Manufacturers and Allieds (BEMA) member companies will meet more than 15,000 professional attendees at the Modern Bakery Moscow 2014, to be held April 23-26 at the Expocentre Fairgrounds in Moscow. They are taking advantage of the bank of research and turn-key international exhibit opportunities that BEMA is developing.

The Overland Park, Kan.-based association has partnered with Kallman Associates Inc. to provide a number of promotional and logistical benefits for the show, including prime location, assistance with freight forwarding, reserved hotel rooms and shared interpreter service. “This effort is a direct result of survey responses and our board’s strategic plan,” says Kerwin Brown, president/CEO. “We think that concepts like the BEMA pavilion will remove some of the barriers associated with exhibiting internationally and enable member companies of all sizes to enter foreign markets.”

The board of directors, international committee and Brown are continually seeking new international opportunities for BEMA members. To date, BEMA has researched opportunities in China, Brazil and the Middle East.
