I want to personally thank all of the pizza professionals who attended International Pizza Expo 2016. This year’s show was undoubtedly the biggest and best Pizza Expo ever held, with a show floor the size of nearly six football fields, 470 exhibiting companies and 1,100 booths all devoted to America’s favorite food — pizza! Pizza professionals from all over the world packed the exhibit hall and seminar rooms in search of latest trends, technology and information.
You could feel the excitement and electricity coming from the World Pizza Games and the International Pizza Challenge areas. This year we had 11 world titles up for grabs between the Games and the Challenge. Throw in the $20,000 MEGA BUCKS Giveaway and the New Exhibitor Treasure Hunt and we had nearly $70,000 in total prize money awarded this year. If you couldn’t attend this year’s show and were wondering who walked away with the hardware, cash and bragging rights, please make sure to read the Expo wrap-up article in the May issue of Pizza Today or visit pizzaexpo.com.
The great thing about Pizza Expo is no matter how many times you’ve attended past shows, there’s always something new you can learn or purchase that will help improve your pizzeria and pay dividends for years to come. In fact, I know it seems a long way off right now, but it’s never too early to start making plans to attend next year’s Expo, which will be held March 28-30, 2017, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. There’s no telling what we’ll come up with to top this year’s show, but we’re already making plans for next year.
If you’re looking for new pizza products, suppliers, networking opportunities or just a few ideas on how to improve your pizzeria, then International Pizza Expo is the ONLY show for you!

Pizza Expo is all PIZZA and it’s all for YOU!
