The 38th Annual Pizza Expo will be held March 22-24, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Thousands of pizza industry professionals will come together to see what is new in the industry and how they can improve their business. As you plan your trip to Pizza Expo, here are our recommendations of the top 5 things to do while at the show:
1. Visit the Grande Booth
There will be hundreds of suppliers who are exhibiting at Pizza Expo, but you’ll want to be sure to stop by the Grande booth to experience the authentic flavor of our cheeses. Make sure you try our new Avorio® Fresh Mozzarella Loaf and ask for a slice of our Grandma Pie to see how this pie can help differentiate your menu. You can also learn about new business building programs available to help you be successful. On Wednesday, join us at 2pm for a demonstration featuring Robin Brown of San Giorgio Pizzeria Napoletana, Grande’s 2021 Fior•di•Latte Recipe Contest Winner. Robin will share with us the inspiration for his award-winning pie, Variazioni su un tema Caprese Pizza.
2. Attend a Demonstration
Leading pizza professionals will share information to help you perfect your dough and share information on new styles of pizza, appetizers, sandwiches and pasta. Whether you are new to the industry or an industry veteran, you will want to make sure you check out the Demo line-up.
3. Attend Seminars
Pizza Expo offers a packed schedule of industry topics, including panels where leading industry professionals share what has worked to make them successful. Learn about everything from hospitality to labor and food costs to opening a new restaurant at these seminars.
4. Watch Operators Compete for Top Prizes
Over 200 operators will compete in the International Pizza Challenge in Traditional, Non-Traditional, Neapolitan and Pan Pizza divisions to see who will come home with coveted title of Pizza Maker of the Year. If you’re looking to see who makes the best Italian Sandwich, Grande is the proud sponsor of the International Italian Sandwich competition where 30 operators compete for the prize of best Italian Sandwich in the world.
5. Participate in Pizza Expo Events
