IN PICS: Scenes from HOST as the foodservice equipment market’s big guns make their mark in Milan

Host 2017

The latest hospitality industry innovations, including catering equipment, were showcased across no fewer than 16 halls at HOST Milan during the past five days.

The show boasted 2,081 companies in attendance as exhibitors, including 1,255 Italian (60.3%) and 826 international firms (39.7%, +11% compared to the previous edition), came to display their latest equipment and services .

For the first time this year, visitors were able to enjoy a hands-on experience with the ‘hybridisation’ theme. For this reason, ice cream, pastries, and coffee, which were exhibiting in halls 10 and 14, were joined through the Experience Gallery; a bridge between the worlds of ice cream and pastries and coffee but also a path that reportedly “stimulates all five senses.”

FEJ and its sister publication Catering Insight were there to capture scenes from the show.

  1. Did you not make it into Pavilion 4 at the far end, a little further on from Rational. You would have been able to review some outstanding fabrication from Lithuanian based fabricator Novameta who had many great Bespoke fabricated solutions in stainless steel; 4000mm, round ceiling canopy, 4000mm one piece top bar solution, Clive Yarwood, MD of Fatboys Catering saying, that’s superb, I will get my designer to send you a project to review, a 4000mm x 1500mm island suite with a one piece top with sink in it, with refrigerated drawers, H2 specification round inner corners, the unit ready and able to accept at least four induction hobs into the work surface if needed. The drawings, photo images are readily available if any dealer would like to see them when talking to clients about “project options”
