15 Feb 2021

The Spanish Confederation of Bakers and Confectioners (CEOPPAN) will once again play a very active role in organising bakery sector activities at the forthcoming edition of InterSICOP. This year's edition, because of the coronavirus, is to be held from 1 to 28 March in an online format called InterSICOP LIVEConnect.

Specifically, CEOPPAN is scheduling "a series of online activities aimed at both Spanish and Ibero-American bakers and confectioners" according to its new president, Eduardo Villar, who was appointed last October. 

Villar is optimistic about the online InterSICOP LIVEConnect format and hopes it will help the sector to raise awareness of “the importance of an international fair like InterSICOP”. Moreover, he is convinced "it will see help the sector debate the main issues currently facing it and establish a bridge with the next face-to-face event in 2022".
