The International Pizza Expo is Back!


The International Pizza Expo is less than 2 weeks away and we can’t wait. We will be heading down to Las Vegas, Nevada for the 35th annual Expo that is set to last from March 4th-7th. We will be exhibiting the 5th & the 6th and look forward to seeing you there too! Here’s a few more details about the show.

WHO will be there?

This Expo is for the pizza lover in all of us. Actually, this Expo is not open to the general public. Those who are attending include those who own pizza restaurants, the managers and operators of them, food distributors and food brokers.

The exhibitors will be suppliers of pizza ingredients, POS systems, kitchen equipment, marketing & promotional materials (this is where we come in), and other goods & services in the pizza restaurant industry.

WHAT will be happening?

Get ready for “a food show on a million steroids” says an attendee from last year’s show.

There will be classes, demonstrations, and a variety of things to do and take in. This year’s line up is good. You will find the best in pizza at this show. Everything you will need for the pizza industry!

 This year’s show has over 500 exhibitors, 1,400 booths, 80 seminars, workshops, demos & networking events. A big bonus to this expo is the space. The Las Vegas Convention Center is the perfect place to host this Expo. We promise, you won’t get overcrowded walking the many rows.
