Italian Exhibition Group, key international expo and conference player managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A, has faced the world emergency by making rapid choices, in Italy and abroad. They are set to relaunch companies' business with its Rimini and Vicenza expo venues and offices in Milan, New York, Las Vegas and Dubai.
IEG President Lorenzo Cagnoni (left photo) says, “fundamental strategic choices made to keep the engines running, now ready to take off again along with the companies with an overall replanning of the calendar and formats of the events foreseen in the first part of 2021.” IEG CEO Corrado Peraboni adds, “Trade fairs are and will remain the most powerful business multipliers.”
The gradual administration of vaccine throughout the world and simultaneous discussion by the European Union on international travel will result in coming months in a renewed scenario for expos and conferences on which IEG, in its role of worldwide ambassador of the best of made in Italy, will reposition its leading expos on the global expo scene, representative of the country’s industrial platform.
SIGEP, the International Trade Show of Artisan Gelato, Pastry and Bakery and the Coffee World, will launch its “Road map to SIGEP 2022” (the edition being held live from 22nd to 26th January next year at Rimini expo centre) with a completely digital version from 15th to 17th March.

Oroarezzo will reopen the Arezzo expo centre from 12th to 15th June 2021.
