You’ll be able to see, touch, taste and explore thousands of products, as well as negotiate great deals right on the show floor. This is the only tradeshow this year where you’ll find an industry-specific education and demonstration program specifically designed for pizzeria and Italian restaurant owners and operators. Experience 200-plus booths of products and services, morning keynote addresses, seminars, pizza and pasta demonstrations, workshops, networking events and more. Discover endless possibilities to take your operation to the next level!

And that’s not all. You might even take home bragging rights from one of our great competitions. We’re extremely excited to announce that our pasta competition, the Northeast Pasta Showdown, is going to be sponsored by

Barilla, the best-selling dry pasta brand in the U.S. See 20 pasta perfectionists go head-to-head in this two-day competition to find out who has the “Best Pasta Dish” East of the Mississippi, if not the world. We’re also proud to partner with Antimo Caputo and Orlando Foods in holding the 3rd annual Caputo Cup. The Caputo Cup is Italy’s largest, most exciting pizza-making contest. This year the competition is being expanded from two to four divisions. Nearly 200 competitors are expected, baking their best pies and presenting them to the judges in the Traditional, Non-Traditional, Pizza Napoletana/STG and Gluten-Free divisions.

Remember, when deciding on which tradeshow to attend, general foodservice shows are precisely that, even if they claim to have an Italian pavilion and a few pizza and pasta exhibitors. To succeed in today’s fiercely competitive restaurant marketplace you need access to all the latest strategies and product innovations. Pizza & Pasta Northeast is your one-stop solution.
