The International Bakery, Pastry and Related Industries Show, INTERSICOP ‘11, which will be celebrating its ninth edition between March 24 and 28, 2011, at the Madrid Trade Fair Organization, has initiated its promotion and marketing. In fact, the first awarding of exhibition spaces will begin in July, among the almost one hundred companies which have confirmed their participation to date at the trade fair organized by IFEMA.
Among the companies which have announced their presence at INTERSICOP ‘11, we should once again highlight the significant number of foreign firms, particularly from Portugal, France, Italy and Belgium, which are the leading countries customarily represented at the show. Thus, INTERSICOP is once again reaffirming its important international scope and reinforcing its position as the leading commercial showcase for the Spanish bread- making and pastry industry and one of the top events in Europe.
The next INTERSICOP fair is an event which has sparked a great deal of expectation in the sector, for four years have transpired since its previous celebration. Now it offers the perfect opportunity to present the latest innovations and the chance to exchange valuable knowledge and experience. In summary, the trade fair will be indeed a truly important business opportunity for everyone involved.
There is a great deal of optimism in the sector thanks to the entrepreneurial associations’ commitment to INTERSICOP, for this will prove vital to the successful functioning of the trade show. INTERSICOP will once again count on the support of the leading entrepreneurial groups in this area, such as CEOPAN, the Spanish Confederation of Bakery Organizations, and CEEAP, the Spanish Federation of Fine Pastry Entrepreneurs.
Furthermore, INTERSICOP has renewed its collaboration agreements with the associations representing the different sectors at the trade fair: AMEC AFESPAN, the Spanish Association of Manufacturers and Exporters of Machinery, Ovens and Equipment for Bakeries, Pastry Shops and Similar; PROVEA, the Association of Product and Service Suppliers for the Professional Food Industry; and ASEMAC, Spanish Association of Frozen Dough Manufacturers.
These associations are encouraging their members to participate in this reference trade fair and to take an active part in the intensive agenda of professional seminars and meetings, which will be held within the framework of INTERSICOP ‘11, whose preparation is already well underway. One of these encounters, customarily held at INTERSICOP, is the MMAPE Championship, for the Best Pastry Chef in Spain, promoted by CEEAP.
