RIMINI, Italy – From Saturday 17th to Wednesday 21st January 2015, Rimini Fiera is organizing the 36th edition of the SIGEP International Exhibition of artisan Gelato, Pastry, Confectionery and Bakery production, at which 175,000 trade members are awaited from all over the world.
The expo is world leader in artisan gelato, among the very top in the other sectors and completed by the solid participation of related chains, such as coffee, which plays an increasingly important role with its international events.
Following up on January´s record-breaking edition, Rimini Fiera confirms the simultaneous staging of RHEX Ristorazione (Rimini Horeca Expo), the trade expo dedicated to trends in food eaten away from home, as well as the biennial A.B.TECH EXPO, an exhibition that brings together under one ´trade fair roof´ the entire bakery sector, from the great quality of artisan products to innovative industrial technologies that ensure absolutely top grade production.
The Rimini Fiera expo days have thus become the only opportunity in the world able to completely represent the artisan gelato and confectionery chains, a hub attracting the sector´s international trade members and large investors from outside the trade.
Rimini Fiera business unit manager Patrizia Cecchi comments, ´We expect a further growth of the expo, which is increasingly able to qualify the profile of its visitors, particularly those coming from abroad.
A direction we have taken along with the key associations and the enterprises, fundamental for sharing the strategies for the expo´s expansion. This has resulted in a complete, high quality product showcase, along with which Rimini Fiera works all year to create events promoting the chains of Italian-made artisan confectionery.´
Among the great events awaited, SIGEP Gelato d´Oro, with the selections of the Italian team for the 2016 Gelato World Cup, and the Pastry Events (Junior World Championship and national pastry championships), with the respective arenas dedicated to performances by great Masters.
