Saluti da Milano

Nov 10, 2009
A post from Lina Chiodo, BUNN Director of Sales and Marketing for Europe, Middle East and Africa

We are just back from the Host /SIC Show in Milano, Italia -- what an outstanding show! We have exhibited in this show in the past and have always found it to be a "must see " show for our industry.

This year did not disappoint! Attendance was reported to be up by 10 percent, which under these economic conditions is no small feat. We were fortunate to have had our BUNN customers from around the globe visit us, and we found some very promising new business opportunities. Some of the countries that visited us were South Africa, Middle East, Australia, Asia, Latin America, Mexico, North America, Western and Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and India .

BUNN's Team EMEA, (pictured left) were in attendance and, as usual, put forth a tremendous effort welcoming our current customers and assisting many new customers.

The AutoPOD was introduced at this show for the European market and it was received with rave reviews! We look forward to selling many units. Please visit our website at for more details.

We were thrilled to have our President and CEO, Hy Bunn attend the show and we kept him very busy.
Neal Robinson, Senior VP International Sales, arrived in time for the show, after attending the NACS show in Las Vegas. Straight from a long flight (he flew directly to Italy), Neal was still ready for dinner with our whole team at his favourite restaurant, Trattoria Milanese.

Some Italian lessons ensued... and by day two, Italian expressions, in proper context abounded. I was very impressed and proud! We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead in 2010. It's a big world out there, and we are happy to explore and offer our BUNN beverage solutions around the globe.

If you were at the show, please comment, and let us know what you thought.


Ciao, a presto!

Grazie mille,
