Great exhibition in Rimini (Italy) for the pastry, gelato, bread and chocolate artisans
The great Italian exhibition of ice cream and pastry will next year be strengthened by two events running simultaneously: RHEX (restaurant and café industry) and AB Tech Expo (bakery). The organisers expect to beat the spectacular attendence figures of last year’s edition.
The great festival of world ice cream, Sigep (Rimini, 18th to 22nd January), ends its most successful year yet. For the first time in its long history, a grand total of 173,904 professionals visited the event, a 20.1% increase over last year (almost 30,000 more visitors).
Everything is ready for the opening of the great festival of ice cream, with the World Cup of Ice Cream as the focal point for the media. But pastry is gaining as much popularity each year as ice cream. Sigep 2014 (in the city of Rimini, Italy) will not only be the base for interesting and unique competitions, such as The Pastry Queen, reserved only for pastry chefs, but it will also host a large number of exhibitions and thematic areas related to pastry.
Winner of the sugar showpiece competition on the very first day Sigep was inaugurated, The Star of Sugar, Davide Malizia showed once again yesterday that he is at his best after leading the Italian team straight to victory during the Junior Pastry World Cup.
More and more, this is the synthesis of the declaration of intent by the SIGEP organization, the International Exhibition for the Artisan Production of Gelato, Pastry, Confectionery and Bakery, for its 34th edition from 19 to 23 January 2013. The lines of action are easily predictable: follow the path that has allowed them to reap so much success throughout its recent history and particularly in its last edition, when foreign visitors increased by 21%.
The Sigep expo, held every year in Rimini (Italy), has proved to be a great showcase for pastry chefs for long years, although it was a traditional meeting point for the gelato industry. This is finally changing, and a major commitment to pâtisserie, as never seen before, is expected for the 2012 edition, counting on the attendance of first-class professionals and varied activities which we will closely follow.
In this edition of the impressive Italian fair Sigep, the birth of a new and spectacular world championship for pastry chefs 23 years old and younger has been confirmed. We’re talking about the Junior Patisserie World Championship, which has held its first edition and was a great success.
