Record numbers attend HostMilano
The 41st edition of hospitality event HostMilano welcomed professional operators from all over the world and attracted a record 200,000 visitors.
In the exhibition halls, visitors were able to experience innovation first-hand, exploring prototypes and products to discover smarter, more advanced functions. The companies organised demonstrations and informed tasting lessons with experts who supplied targeted insights to support the efficiency of the technologies presented.
Business meetings with operators and hosted buyers, brought to Milan in part thanks to the collaboration of ITA-ICE from all over the world, particularly from the United States, Canada, Russia and the United Arab Emirates, grew considerably, with immense satisfaction coming from having met proposals that completely fulfilled their expectations.
Numerous innovations were presented at the exhibition including state-of-the-art analytics software that allow chains to optimise and orient resources thanks to the real-time monitoring of a fleet of coffee machines.
Host 2019 was also an opportunity to share skills and experiences through a programme of over 800 events from professional consultants and experts from all over the world, touching on key issues such as sustainability and technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things.
The showcase on innovation in coffee by SCA Specialty Coffee Association and the focuses on mixology and bartending, with new aromas and opportunities offered by new equipment, with professionals and experts from FIPE, Mixer and Planet One, completed the picture of a truly complete and in-depth training.
The appointment with the next edition of HostMilano is at fieramilano from 22-26 October 2021.
