CoffeeFest is taking place for the first time, coinciding with the trade fair Ice Cream, Bakery and Pastry Championships, the Grand Masters Seminar and the Intersicop Forum, which includes events such as the Women Bakers' Forum, are just a few of the highlights at the event.

InterSICOP 2024, the largest gathering of the Bakery, Patisserie, Ice Cream, Coffee and Equipment industry, returns to Madrid for its fourteenth edition from 17 to 20 February under the heading of "la pasión que nos une" (the passion that unites us) as its leitmotif. Organised by IFEMA MADRID, more than 175 companies from eight countries will be presenting their latest products in halls 12 and 14 of the trade fair centre.

This is the only trade event dedicated exclusively to this sector on the Iberian Peninsula, which returns to its biennial meeting to show professionals the latest trends and technologies developed over the last two years.  Together with an extensive programme of conferences, seminars, demonstrations and championships, in which professionals will test their skills and abilities, it will complete an event which, for the first time, coincides with Coffee Fest, the great international meeting for coffee lovers which, once again, will be focusing on speciality coffee. And all of this, with the support of the entire associative fabric of this important economic sector, which, after the difficulties of recent years, is regaining its momentum. This is confirmed by the participation figures of this new edition of InterSICOP, which shows the good moment the industry is undergoing.

. Packed agenda of demonstrations, competitions, conferences and seminars

The exhibition will be complemented by an intensive agenda of meetings, including conferences, seminars, demonstrations and competitions, where participants will be sharing their knowledge, skills and experiences. Professionals of the stature of Jacob Torreblanca -the best pastry chef in the world-, Lluc Crusellas - the world’s best chocolatier-, and Marcos Díaz -the Best Master Artisan Pastry Chef of Spain 2023 (MMAPE)- will be offering their best creations at the Great Masters of bakery, pastry and ice cream seminar.

For its part, the InterSICOP Forum will be hosting presentations from the different sectors represented at the Show, as well as the round tables of the Association of Artisan Entrepreneurs of the Madrid Pastry sector (ASEMPAS), and the 2nd Forum of Women Bakers.

There will also be important pastry championships taking place, such as the MMAPE, for the Best Master Artisan Pastry Chef in Spain (17 and 18 February 2024), and the 4th National Student Pastry Chef Championship (19 and 20 February), in addition to those specialising in Bakery, such as the 5th National Artisan Bakery Championship (CNPA) - from 17 to 19 February -, the Traditional and Artisan Bakery Lobby - also from 17 to 19 February -, and the 7th Torrijas Competition (20 February).
