PreGel America today announced its partnership with Chef Keegan Gerhard for the 2013 International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) October 6-9 at Nevada’s Las Vegas Convention Center. Chef Gerhard will lend his pastry know-how and renowned TV personality to emcee featured demonstrations at PreGel’s booth #2815.

“We are extremely excited to have Chef Gerhard be a part of our presence at this year’s IBIE,” said Marco Casol, president and CEO of PreGel America. “Chef Gerhard brings a wealth of knowledge and personality to everything he does in the world of desserts, and after a successful partnership at the National Restaurant Association Show it was a natural fit to bring him back to emcee the demonstrations at our booth again.”

The company will offer six different scheduled demos every day during the first three days of the show at designated Gelato Demonstration and Pastry Demonstration Stations. These demos will take place at PreGel’s booth for attendees to learn the latest in pastry and frozen desserts. Chef Gerhard will emcee each of the demos and be on-hand to answer questions and meet with attendees. Schedules for the demonstrations are posted on the company’s website and will be available at show site.

Chef Gerhard is also the master of ceremonies for the StarChefs,com International Pastry Competition which is sponsored by PreGel. This will be the fourth year for the competition.
