Expo Spotlight: Pizza Expo and Pizza & Pasta Northeast

By Bill Oakley


International Pizza Expo 2017 March 27–30, 2017
Las Vegas Convention Center

Designed for pizzeria owners and operators, there’s something for everyone at Pizza Expo, whether you’re an industry veteran or just thinking about opening your first pizzeria. 

Pizza Expo continues to be the premier event for learning and networking, as well as your one-stop shop for everything you need for your pizzeria. Where else but Pizza Expo could you find more than 450 manufacturers and suppliers on a show floor larger than six football fields? The short answer is nowhere.

Have you ever heard the saying, “Education is the key to success”? We feel so strongly about education that we’re offering more than 90 business-boosting seminars, demonstrations and workshops. You’ll have the opportunity to learn how to retain and grow your customer base, attract new customers, improve customer service, create marketing plans that work, upsell and cross-promote to boost your bottom line. International Pizza Expo — the “Show of Shows” for the pizzeria industry — is truly THE place to do business, learn, network and make deals.

If you haven’t already registered to attend, then you should stop reading this now and visit PizzaExpo.com to preregister and save $30. For those of you who have already made plans for Pizza Expo, it’s a good idea to start planning your show strategy by using the online planner to map out the exhibitors you want to meet with, as well as the seminars and demonstrations you want to attend.

I like to think that attending Pizza Expo will be one of, if not the best, investments of time and money that you’ll make this year. The bottom line is there’s always something new at Pizza Expo that can improve your operation. As always, our commitment to you, our partners, is to produce the biggest and best show ever!

Remember, attending Pizza Expo is a tax-deductible working vacation.

It’s all pizza and it’s all for YOU!
