RIMINI, Italy – A trade show that is already a brand and that represents the quintessential marketplace for the entire industry. Sigep will be back in January 2022. The 43rd edition of SIGEP will be dedicated to out of home dessert & coffee market. The event will be back in its physical form as the Italian dessert and coffee ambassador in the large and welcoming facilities at the Rimini Expo Centre in Italy. Artisan gelato and pastry, chocolate, coffee and bakery, icons of the Italian way of life in food, will be physically meeting again in IEG – Italian Exhibition Group’s Rimini halls from January 22 to 26, 2022.
Lorenzo Cagnoni, IEG president, said, “We perceived the stakeholders and regular exhibitors’ utmost desire for a physical return to Sigep. An attachment that has supported us in organising and sharing the 2022 edition. An event that we have all been looking forward to for two years.”
Corrado Peraboni, CEO, IEG, said, “Our work on the patrimony that this brand represents for Italian companies has never ceased. Immediately after last March’s fully digital Sigep Exp, we drew up our business road map for the entire sector. We even fixed the calendar dates for future editions, from here until 2025, including AB Tech Expo 2023: a message to the dessert and coffee foodservice market, which is showing signs of lively exuberance on an international scale.”
On display, numerous new product ideas that the public will be able to see as they wander among the stands at Rimini Expo Centre. Moreover, traders attending Sigep 2022 will find updated and specific attention to ingredients, outdoor seating area furnishings, eco-sustainable packaging, digital services, logistics and the cold chain.
The Arenas for the individual gelato, pastry, coffee and bakery supply chains have also been confirmed.
Furthermore, Sigep 22 will be presenting sector trends with an international approach: new consumer needs, innovations, technologies and market strategies in different parts of the world will be the focus of animated talks in the Vision Plaza, in collaboration with international research companies, associations and media partners.
The Show also foresees a three-day ‘Digital Agenda’ (in this case from January 26 to 28), specifically for exhibitor and buyer matching on the digital platform.
And, in anticipation of January 2022, Sigep is offering, from September to December, ‘Thematic Days’, digital events for professionals only that will trace the road map towards its physically-attended edition.
