SIGEP looks to "the world", and the premier italian ice cream show in the world makes its pizza space even bigger

The 46th edition of the event organized by Italian Exhibition Group will be held in Rimini from 18 to 22 January 2025, with a new pay-off: Sigep World – The World Expo for Foodservice Excellence Sigep, the world’s leading Italian ice cream fair, is stretching its international reach and broadening its horizons towards the pizza universe, an industry which according to the most recent estimates has a global value of over 153 billion dollars (source Verified Markets Reports). And for the 2025 edition it is giving itself a makeover, starting from the pay-off which will become: "Sigep World - The World Expo for Foodservice Excellence". The reference to World underlines the global scope of the Rimini event recently supported by two new satellite trade shows in markets with great potential such as southern China and the Singapore area. The event, organized by Italian Exhibition Group, will be held at Rimini Expo Centre from 18 to 22 January 2025. In addition to ice cream, which remains the core of the exhibition, top foodservice technologies and premium ingredients for the pastry, pizza, bread making, and coffee world will also feature, embracing an increasingly wider community: last year attracted visitors arrived from no less than 160 countries, eager to check out the 1,200 exhibiting brands from 35 countries. And in that same edition, Sigep hosted over 500 buyers from 84 countries, generating more than 5,200 business meetings. The 46th edition will maintain the 5 large supply chains. Gelato will obviously be a shining star. After all, Sigep is the number one Italian ice cream fair in the world, with the most complete offering and the participation of all producers, from technologies to ingredients, from semi-finished products to equipment. And alongside ice cream there will of course be pastry, bread, chocolate and coffee. But among the new entries is a large space dedicated to pizza: Sigep World will definitely be the most important showcase for the product and its technologies, becoming a true cornerstone. Italian Exhibition Group will also expand the exhibition area, enhancing the exhibition sector with two new pavilions in the east area providing up to 140 thousand extra square metres of exhibit space, to shoulder the growth of this major event.
