International Ice Cream Exhibition: the sweet beginning to winter at Longarone Fiere 2012!

From 02 December 2012 to 05 December 2012


The famous ice cream exhibition 2012, Italy in Longarone is just around the corner! Included in the full calendar of Longarone Fiere 2012 for many months, the Mostra Internazionale del Gelato Artigianale returns to the traditional annual events of Longarone: Ice Cream Fair will offer a tantalizing four days of debates and news on ice cream in Europe.

The Mig International Ice Cream Exhibition will be held from 2 to 5 December 2012 in the halls of the Longarone Fiere.

The Ice Cream Exhibition in Longarone, Italy has a long history, beginning as a small local fair to become one of the largest industry events worldwide. The first event, dedicated to the delicious cold dessert, took place in 1959, choosing Longarone as the location since ice-cream makers of the Cadore and Zoldo Valley used to travel through this area on their way home after a season of work in Europe.

Following a temporary suspension, due to the great tragedy in 1963 that destroyed Longarone and the neighbouring municipalities, the Longarone Ice Cream Exhibition has, over the years, become of growing importance, a good opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, not only for ice cream of the surrounding mountain area, but also for many foreign operators, favoured by the presence of Artglace, the European Confederation of artisan ice cream, at the Longarone Fiere.

At the ice cream exhibition of Longarone Italy 2012 there will be topical meetings and the return of international competitions that are now part of the exhibition, including the Festival d'Autore, which brings the ice cream on the catwalk and the Gold Cup now in its 43rd edition. The 'Mastri Gelatieri prize will return to Longarone 2012 and awarded to the top promoters of ice cream in the world; the 'Gelaterie in web' prize for the best websites on ice cream; the choice of Taste of the Year and the raditional assemblies for Italians ice cream makers who work abroad and members of specific associations.

An International exhibition of products, machinery and equipment for ice cream, as well as insights on the issues and major developments that may affect ice cream, the international ice cream exhibition 2012 will also feature a master's thesis award on ice cream and meetings with Beppo Tonon, known throughout the world for his wonderful compositions of carved fruit.

Do not miss this great celebration of the beginning of winter dedicated to ice cream! The international ice cream exhibition at Longarone Fiere is waiting for you for four days from 2 to 5 December devoted entirely to the world of ice cream! In order to enable easy access to the international ice cream exhibition the organizers of the Longarone fair have organised a link service to and from Venice Marco Polo airport.
