23.10.2019 - 02:00

Gelatissimo with two top-class competitions for gelato creations / Gelato professionals from Italy share their knowledge with visitors for the first time

With two exciting competitions the Stuttgart-based trade fair Gelatissimo (15 to 19 February 2020) provides a special experience with regard to the gelato industry. At the third Grand Prix Gelatissimo the skilful gelatieri compete over three competition days to create the best hazelnut, yoghurt and strawberry gelato. The winner of the Grand Prix Gelatissimo will be determined during the final on the fourth day of the trade fair: the winners from the previous three days will provide a live demonstration of their skill during the production of mango-flavoured gelato. The expert jury will then select the overall winner and hand over the coveted trophy, the Coppa Gelatissimo. On Wednesday, 19 February, another competition follows with the Intercoppa. In addition to the three daily winners of the Grand Prix Gelatissimo 2020, the participants also include the Grand Prix finalists from 2016 and 2018. They face a big challenge: the gelatiero who produces the best beer-flavoured gelato wins the Intercoppa.

Trends at Gelatissimo: vegan gelato and sugar-free types

Whether it is shop fixtures and fittings, a wide range of raw materials, current developments for ice-cream machines, the latest cooling technology or equipment trends for the ice cream laboratory – Gelatissimo offers the entire range of the gelato industry. A trend topic at the trade fair is health-conscious nutrition: Apart from vegan gelato, the exhibitors also showcase organic and sugar-free types. In addition to the varied toppings and waffles, classic and new gelato flavours complement the industry offering at the trade fair. "Today Gelatissimo is the most important industry meeting place north of the Alps. Our aim is to always offer the specialist audience the latest trends and innovations", explains Markus Tischberger, Project Manager of Gelatissimo and Intergastra. "Anyone who wants to learn the trade of gelato production finds the corresponding network here. And for the first time Italian gelato professionals also share their know-how with visitors in live shows."

Coffee Summit at Intergastra

A cross-industry exchange of information and ideas takes place thanks to the close proximity to Intergastra. Owners of ice cream parlours, confectioners, as well as restaurant owners and hoteliers from all over the world benefit from the diversity of both trade fairs. Visitors have the opportunity to obtain information about current trends and developments – from gelato production and kitchen equipment to design trends, table culture innovations through to building technology and the entire beverage scene. You also find valuable impulses in the Alfred Kärcher Hall (Hall 8), where you experience the world of coffee. Whether it is green coffee, preparation methods, cup tastings, taste experiences in the Roasting Village or the international exchange of information and ideas among experts at the Coffee Symposium – gelato and coffee are a tasty duo. Numerous events complement the trade fair experience: Whereas the Coffee Summit focuses on coffee production, visitors can watch confectioners making delicacies within the framework of the Robert Widmann competition.
