Wega Urban to sponsor Gelato World Cup at Sigep

Wega Coffee Machines has announced it is the Technical Sponsor of the eighth Gelato World Cup, taking place at Sigep from 20 to 24 January.

2018 will mark the 39th edition of the international exhibition dedicated to artisan gelato, confectionery, pastry, bakery production and the coffee sector.

Located in Rimini, Italy, the expo is considered one of the most important international trade fairs in the European market for craft sweets, bakery goods and homemade ice cream.

The eighth edition of the Gelato World Cup will see participants gather from continents. Participants will represent Argentina, Australia, Japan, Morocco, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, the United States.

Twelve teams will compete, comprising of five people including an ice cream maker, a cook, an ice sculptor, a pastry chef, and guided by a team manager. Competitors will have access to two new Wega Urban machines for the event.

Italy won last year’s Gelato World Cup, with Australia placing third.

The contest marked by a growing interest from around the world is streamed live for the duration of the event. For more information, click here.

Wega will also have a presence at the Rimini Fairgrounds with a stand located in Pavilion A1, stand 007.

Wega will feature all its top models including the Polaris, Vela Vintage and Mininova, along with new products to the range items: Fullconcept, Nexa and the Urban.

With “modern lines” and “cutting edge” technology, Wega describes the Urban as a “green” machine that guarantees certified energy savings of up to 47.6 per cent in standby mode and 30 per cent while in use.

The Wega Urban also comes with a intelligent and interactive five-inch screen integrated onto the front control panel and protected by a tempered glass cover.

Photos and images can be instantly uploaded to the display screens so the machine can be personalised in a few easy steps. There is also a shot counter, and the raised brew groups can be adjusted from 122 millimetres to 82 millimetres thanks to a removable stainless steel grill.
