March 2015 Exhibition: Gelato World Tour 2.0

Note: Sorry this is a super backlog post, I was feeling extremely tired and weak from running around carrying more than myself for the past few month… and only (almost) back to myself this month.

Late March I am glad to attend the “4-in-1 exhibition” at Marina Bay Sand. Wow~ I get to enjoy the 4 exhibition under a roof: Gelato World Tour 2.0, Café Asia 2015, International Coffee & Tea Industry Expo 2015 and Sweets & Bakes Asia 2015!

Let’s see what’s happening during the Gelato World Tour 2.0 exhibition~

Gelato World Tour 2.0
During 20th March 2015 to 22nd March 2015, visitors get to enjoy
freshly created delight presented by new and seasoned gelato artisans from the
Asia Pacific region, whom pitted themselves against each other in the quest to win the
prestigious “World’s Best Gelato” title.

Visitors will be able to vote for their favorite flavor from the top 16 finalists with a Gelato
Ticket. GWT’s Technical Jury and the visitors vote will help to determine the top three flavors to
represent the Asia Pacific region at the Grand Finale of the Gelato World Tour 2.0, which will be held in Rimini, Italy in 2017.

Love the cute dustbin… interesting set up for the exhbition

 

Visitors are busy tasting and sharing their opinions with each another
