Sigep Community: let's give voice to the protagonists of the 2023 edition

"I was at SIGEP for the first time and I was overwhelmed by the range of products and the large number of exhibitors. The quality and variety of the competitions were also overwhelming. For me, SIGEP will be a permanent fixture in my annual schedule."

Gerhard Schenk, Präsident bei Deutscher Konditorenbund

“Being part of SIGEP is essential for our company, because it is a meeting point, due to the fact that customers and potential customers come here from all over the world. On the one hand, this allows us to show and present our innovations and more; whereas, on the other hand, it helps us understand what the needs in different parts of the world actually are and, therefore, develop new products.”

Elena Zuffi, Product Manager at Carpigiani

“This is the first time I've ever been to SIGEP and I've been to a lot of food shows. This is the most impressive food show I've ever been to. If anyone is looking for anything to have anything to do with coffees and chocolates and pastries or equipment to do such, this is probably the best show to go to. It's very, very impressive.”

William Eudy, Corporate Executive Chef at FOCUS Brands International
