International Pizza Expo 2014: Open for Business

By Bill Oakley

Bill OakleyCan you imagine a show floor larger than five-and-a-half football fields with nothing but pizza-related supplies, equipment and services? At Pizza Expo® you’ll be able to one-stop shop, sample and network with your pizza peers from around the world. International Pizza Expo® – the “Show of Shows” for the Pizzeria Industry – is THE place to do business, learn, network and deal. Pizza Expo has grown from a humble start of 134 booths in Orlando, Florida, in 1984 to over 1,000 booths at our show next March.

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

Show Web Site Is Live — www.PizzaExpo.com The International Pizza Expo 2014 Web site has been recently updated with everything you need to know about attending or exhibiting.

Online Registration Is Open Book online and SAVE $10. Make plans NOW; Las Vegas will be bulging at the seams in March with Pizza Expo, spring break, NCAA basketball and several other events and trade shows all going on at the same time. Best of all, it’s a tax deductible working vacation. Remember, the earlier you plan, the more you save!

Housing Is Open We’ve negotiated special discounted rates with some of the finest hotels in Las Vegas through our official housing bureau, Expovision. Check out the Travel and Hotel page on our Web site for a list of hotels, rates and reservation instructions. Reserve online or download a housing form and fax in your request.

Education Program Do you want to find out how to position your pizzeria to outperform the competition? At next year’s show, we’ll offer more on-target business-boosting seminars and networking events than ever before. Choose from over 85 educational sessions and demonstrations, not to mention the two fantastic morning keynote addresses. Be sure to check out our Monday programing for new operators and early–arriving attendees and our new School of Pizzeria Management workshops. This year, our education program will cover hot button topics, such as trends in menu design, employee motivation and health care, just to name a few. Our Power Panels have been specifically designed to jump-start each and every seminar day. Learn from some of the industry’s top operators, who will share their experiences on topics of near-universal interest. And on the final day of the show, the seminar rooms will be turned over to the “pizza pros” for All-Operator Thursday, where super-successful pizzeria operators will share insights and knowledge. If you’re looking for answers or need a few new ideas, attending International Pizza Expo will be the best investment of time and money you’ll make in 2014. There are so many valuable seminars available that you’ll want to bring additional employees so you don’t miss a single one! See the Show and Conference Schedule Web site page for more information.

We Mean Business!
