First time for Epta at Hostelco 2022

First time for Epta at Hostelco 2022

Epta Iberia will be one of the protagonists of Hostelco from 4 to 7 April 2022. This key Spanish event is the international reference point for the food sector, equipment, machinery for restaurants, hotels and collective catering (pavilion 4 - stand 270). 

It will be held in synergy with Alimentaria, at the Gran Via de Fira of Barcelona, and is an important moment to network, share best practices and present new frontiers of the sector. 

The goal of the participation of Epta Iberia is to contribute to the evolution of a sector which is experiencing a strong period of growth.

Ho.Re.Ca and F&B in strong recovery

In particular, the Spanish equipment industry for the Ho.Re.Ca. and F&B world is recording a double-digit recovery, just as the data shown during the presentation to the press of the 2022 edition of Hostelco reveal.

They are extremely positive data after the significant fall in turnover recorded by Spanish companies, both in the national and in international market, during 2020. An extra boost for all the players involved, from the food industry to the refrigeration world.

EptaConcept at Hostelco

In detail, Hostelco will be the opportunity for Epta Iberia to illustrate the “secret recipe” of EptaConcept.

The Epta brand is specialised in creating display areas of great scenic impact to contribute to the growth of the Clients’ business.

EptaConcept works alongside the operators in the Ho.Re.Ca. and F&B sector in designing turnkey sales spaces. The brand can rely on the long experience of its multidisciplinary team. Furthermore, it boasts the possibility of integrating the solutions of the different Epta brands in its projects and personalising them.

The uniqueness of the service provided by EptaConcept comes from these details. The brand is able to shape and build small and large business spaces, taking care of each phase, from the design of the layout and interior design to the supply of all the furnishings, even non-refrigerated ones. 

Between design and sustainability

The stand fully reflects all the creative energy of EptaConcept, to underline how design is always a central aspect for EptaConcept, accompanied by deep attention to sustainability. An area where EptaConcept merges its two key design lines, Product Design and Interior Design: here, the style choices are moved not only by aesthetic research but, if combined together, can affect the wellness of the users to a care of spaces that is balanced and attentively reasoned, and to refrigerated counters which emphasise and enhance the product to display.

It is an area where the Total White philosophy merges harmoniously with the desire to give a Natural touch to the set-up with pairing of materials, textures and finishes of different nature, which enrich the perception of space, giving depth and warmth.

Hostelco 2022: Epta’s stand 

The stand has been designed to reproduce a food-to-go corner which integrates different elements and products. Inside, the stand features a wall-environment which welcomes Costan and Iarp solutions, integrated inside a wood coating.

In particular, the following models, outline a themed offer divided into Winery, Take Away and Ice Cream:

  • Joy 30 smartscreen, semivertical plug-in by Iarp for beverages, which amazes for the possibility to transmit videos and music 
  • Glee Xslim NV, the vertical plug-in by Iarp, extremely compact, dedicated to pre-packaged ice-cream 
  • Glee Glass Winery, the vertical plug-in by Iarp which, in this version dedicated to the display of wine bottles, is designed to increase the visibility of the wines, thanks to the glass door and transparent terminal ends
  • Glee MID 22, the vertical plug-in by Iarp, ideal for displaying drinks 
  • Super Excite, the Iarp counter suited for the impulse sale of packaged ice cream
  • Funky by Costan, the vertical refrigerated counter with incorporated unit for fresh pre-packaged products, part of the SlimFit family, which features a moderate height and depth 

Further confirmation of the virtuosity of EptaConcept is the mini-place designed to focus the attention of the public on the scooping counter Delight. The solution is presented on a structure which recalls a traditional ice-cream cart. 

Finally, Cornice of Eurocryor is also worthy of note, the lunch corner placed at the centre of the space. This self-service island is a versatile and functional solution, dedicated to food-to-go.
