RIMINI, Italy – Over 500 exhibiting brands from 30 different countries: these are the main figures of the second edition of Sigep China and Anuga Select China, the two events that will take place simultaneously at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Centre, organised by Italian Exhibition Group (through IEG China) and Koelnmesse.

A three-day event, from 24th to 26th April, in which the Italian and European dolce food service industry will be represented thanks to Sigep China. And just like the 45th edition of Sigep (organised by Italian Exhibition Group), staged at Rimini Expo Centre last January, the appointment in China will be a reference point for innovation in the 5 major exhibition sectors: artisan gelato, bakery, pastry, chocolate and coffee. In fact, several leading Italian and European brands will be in attendance: on the ingredients front Babbi, Di Saronno, Mec3, Irca, Valrhona, gelato machines by Carpigiani and Ice Team and coffee machines by Rhea, Nuova Simonelli and Eureka.

Shenzhen, the economic engine of the Greater Bay Area

For IEG, the event marks a great opportunity for growth with the aim of making Italian pastry art better known in China. And the Shenzhen catchment area is the perfect development pole since it is the economic engine of the Greater Bay Area of Guandong-Hong Kong-Macao, a veritable reference point for the entire southern Chinese market.

A market that, according to the most recent data, exceeds 1,700 billion dollars. It is no coincidence that, at the first edition of Sigep China, 40% of visitors were Ôdecision makers´ and the most represented countries, besides China, were Italy, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and the USA.

A Forum Area will also be set up along the lines of Sigep´s Vision Plaza featuring the most significant talks regarding the 5 exhibition areas.

International projection towards Sigep Asia

The second edition of Sigep China confirms Italian Exhibition Group´s recent expansion towards Asian markets.
