Developed specifically for owners and operators of pizzerias and Italian restaurants, there’s something for everyone at the new Pizza & Pasta Northeast tradeshow. For two jam-packed days, you’ll have access to more than 200 booths of products and services, as well as top-shelf demonstrations, workshops, seminars and special events.

Whether you’re an industry veteran or just thinking about opening your first unit, Pizza & Pasta Northeast is a must-attend event! It’s your one-stop shop for everything you need to run a successful and profitable restaurant.

We’re excited about our panel discussion on Tuesday, October 17: “New Faces of the Pizza Pantheon” (featuring New York pizza kingpins Paulie Gee, Mark Iacono of Lucali Pizzeria and Roberto Caporuscio of Kesté Pizza & Vino). Scott Wiener, the Guinness World Record Holder for his pizza box collection and pizza guide extraordinaire, will moderate. At the conclusion, we’ll open the floor up for questions and answers. Then you can mix and mingle with industry peers and thought leaders to find out what’s new, what’s working and what’s trending. Discover endless possibilities to take your operations to the next level.

Our pizza and pasta demonstration program is filled with chefs and pizza makers you’ll recognize. Our star-studded list of demonstrators includes luminaries such as Frank Pinello of Best Pizza; Scott Tacinelli and Angie Rito of Quality Italian Steakhouse; Antimo DiMeo of Ardé Osteria & Pizzeria and Nino Coniglio of Williamsburg Pizza, just to name a few.

The bottom line is there always will be winners and losers. Which do you want to be? Those who arm themselves with industry knowledge and are willing to take action toward positive change will have the ability to outperform the competition and position their restaurants for future growth and success.

For more information and to register, please visit PizzaAndPastaExpo.com. Don’t delay. Registration is now open for business, so start making your plans now.

It’s all about pizza & pasta, and it’s all for YOU!

Best regards,

Bill Oakley
Group Show Director
