Investing in innovation: SIGEP also dedicates an exhibition area to innovation, a real district in which to ensure visibility to all those companies that constantly invest in Research & Development, contributing to the progress and continuous improvement of the Food & Beverage sector.

This area is the Innovation District, set up under the dome of the South Hall, ready to become the beating heart of innovation and a starting point for professional comparisons and revolutionary projects.

For years, the Vision Plaza has been the stage for new market trends, an area that presents operators with the most advanced solutions in the world of Dolce Foodservice.

From the most popular formats for pastry shops and ice cream places to consumer trends, passing through small and large digital revolutions and new business models: the Vision Plaza covers a wide range of topics, indispensable for Dolce professionals oriented to success.
