Rimini Expo Centre (ITALY) 

SIGEP is the number one event in the world today as it dictates future trends and, every year, attracts the main players in the gelato industry from all over the world. SIGEP  is the time of year when we talk gelato in worldwide terms. 

SIGEP is by far the most important international trade fair in the gelato world. It's not just the leading expo here in Italy. We've seen its presence grow worldwide over the years. SIGEP is a can’t-miss appointment to us and the beginning of the gelato and pastry season each year. 

SIGEP is of inestimable value to us. We have been a part of the show for many years now, and we have become a Main Sponsor for all pastry and gelato competitions. SIGEP is an integral part of training for all our pastry chefs, young and experienced alike.
