Team LLK touched down in Milan last weekend to assist our fantastic pizza equipment manufacturers, Cuppone, showcase their products at the 41st edition of Europe’s BIGGEST hospitality exhibition, HOST!
Natalie, Kyle, Will, Ian and Cat flew out to lend their hands at the event. Each of these team members represent a different department at LLK, including technical, warehouse, sales and marketing. This meant the team could cover all bases in their assistance to Cuppone, from giving a 'pizza' their Cuppone knowledge to customers in sales meetings to capturing all the action on camera!
The team got to meet Cuppone’s other suppliers from all over the world, including the Netherlands (Italindo), France (Billard & Clindoux)and America (Pizza Equipment Pro’s). They all worked together as Team HOST to ensure every visitor of the stand could chat with someone that spoke their language and get an answer to any of their questions about Cuppone’s world famous range!
Cuppone had spent months developing an attention-grabbing stand kitted out with their range of world-renowned pizza ovens and equipment plugged in and ready for thorough examination by the attending 190,000 potential buyers. They also revealed never before seen innovations they’ve added to their product catalogue that have been under careful development for the last 2 years, such as the brand-new Leonardo oven.
The stand also featured a pop-up demo kitchen in which Cuppone’s technical ‘Will Pilling equivalent’, Giando, showcased Cuppone pizza equipment in action while preparing a plethora of pizza for the hundreds of hungry visitors and passers-by. The complimentary food proved very popular, with attendees queuing all the way out of the stand to get a slice!
Each evening, Team HOST feasted together on Milan’s finest fish dishes to fuel themselves for the following day of hustle at the stand, bringing the international Cuppone family even closer.
Federico Cuppone, Managing Director of Cuppone, said “I think it is fundamental for Cuppone to attend HOST because it is the most important exhibition in Europe, maybe even in the world for catering equipment, pizzerias and restaurants. It is a great occasion for us to present new projects and ideas to attendees from all over the world.”
Team LLK are honoured to have been invited to HOST 2019. This exhibition connects people from all over the globe over a mutual love of the innovative and animated hospitality industry. It’s not only a great opportunity for LLK to share our knowledge and Cuppone’s time and energy saving tools with industry but also to immerse ourselves in the world of hospitality and develop our status as the pizza professionals!
