PROSTAND, THE DESIGN OF THE EXHIBITION SPACES AND THE NEW TECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS
SIGEP and ABTech 2023 met expectations and everything that revolves around them confirms it. This is the case of Prostand, an IEG Group company that has been operating in the exhibition design sector for over 25 years. Prostand has created 365 areas including customized stands, modular stands and event areas, for a total of 18,000 square meters set up. Huge numbers if you consider that at the same time Prostand set up another 17,000 m2 for VicenzaOro, an exhibition also organized by IEG.
The trends relating to exhibition design recorded by the Observatory of Fittings curated by Prostand, on the entire Sigep/Abetch 2023 event concerning ´hangings´, technologies and formats of the stands.
The structures hanging from the barrel ceilings of the halls have not only multiplied, but have changed their function. They have gone from simple frames suitable for holding lights and banners with company brands, to real structures that seek that amazing ´wow´ effect. The suspended structures were used for unusual ceilings: wooden paneling, mirrors, chandeliers, antiqued grates, trellises supporting hanging plants. Increasingly lighter structures to which sound diffusion systems and systems for ever more performing data technologies have been hooked up, which allow the streaming of the thousand shows present in the stands.
LED walls of all shapes and sizes, with impossible curvatures, with increasingly high and modular resolutions, take on the dual function of architectural element and communicative tool and are perfectly integrated into the sets, recessed or even free-standing. The design has favored continuity, achieved through the use of the same materials for both the ceilings and the underlying furnishings. The yield is that of unity, elegance and communicative coherence.

GREEN GELATO: HEALTHIER AND SUSTAINABLE THANKS TO GRAPE SUGAR
The new trends in the world of ice cream and the future of the sector are protagonists in the Sigep Gelato Arena. With Martino Liuzzi, nutritionist researcher as well as food and ice cream expert, yesterday afternoon we talked about a ´green´ experience linked to ice cream. Liuzzi, who together with the Accademia Italiana Gelatieri Artigiani experiments with ever new solutions, illustrated the research conducted on the use of alternative sugars as opposed to the commonly used cereal dextrose and fructose. The use of grape sugar has allowed a real revolution in the balance of traditional artisanal ice cream, making it healthier thanks to a significant reduction in fats and sugars, but it has also made it more ´green´. Thanks to its greater ability to bind water, in fact, grape sugar allows an advance of the production process, with consequent energy and time savings.
Yesterday, at Sigep, the traditional appointment with prizes for the best communication in the gelato and pastry sectors by Punto.IT.
The Unica prize was awarded jointly to Frigomat for the ´Technology for a green soul´ campaign and to Mec3 for the one called ´Abracadamia´. The award for the most effective digital strategy received five joint first prizes: Medac, Comprital, Casa Optima, Babbi and Carpigiani.
Two ambassadors of ice cream were awarded: the Italian Ice Cream Makers Association with Vincenzo Pellestrì and Claudio Pica, and Marco Venturino of the ice cream parlor ´I giardini di Marzo in Varazze´.
