Pizza Today - October 2016 - 49

WE'RE COMING
AND HERE'S WHY

C

oal-fired New York. Brick-oven Boston.
Clam-capital New Haven. Tomato-pie
Philadelphia - nearly every city and
town between Portland, Maine, and the Potomac
River features proud independent pizzerias and
Italian pasta houses. Some are long-established
and serve old family recipes. Others offer
creative twists for new generations of diners.
All are owned and operated by multi-talented
entrepreneurs competing for a bigger slice of the
restaurant business.
Italian restaurants and pizzerias in the 12
Northeastern states generate more revenue than
any other 12 U.S. states combined. Our research
shows that there are 28,000 Italian- and pizzaconcept restaurants in the region with annual
sales exceeding $18 billion.
Pizza Expo saw those numbers and realized the
Italian pasta and pizzeria operators in this region
have extensive buying power and a hunger for
success in the industry. Our message to Northeast
operators: You need your own trade show!
And now you have it. On Oct. 17 - 18, 2017,
Pizza Expo will host Pizza & Pasta Northeast at
the Atlantic City Convention Center.
The two-day event will give the region's
Italian restaurant segment an opportunity to
come together and see new products, find new
suppliers, meet vendors and network with fellow
operators. Many suppliers will offer discounts on
products and services. The show also will feature a
pizza-making competition and a best pasta bakeoff, as well as keynotes from industry luminaries
and workshops to help you improve operations
and increase profits.
Put the October 2017 dates on your calendar
and watch for further details on the event Web
site pizzaandpastaexpo.com.
We're coming to the Northeast, and you'll want
to be there!

Exhibitors
You'll find the biggest, best
and most specialized providers
of products and ingredients for a
pizzeria on the Exhibit Hall floor. It's
the ideal place to shop for items to
improve your restaurant and your
brand.

bake their pizzas. We'll showcase
multiple styles of pizza from master
pizzaioli, and teach you how to add
versatility to your menu and win
more customers.

For Pasta
Exhibitors
Whether you're expanding
into pasta or have a longstanding
pasta menu, there will be many
new ingredients to consider and
equipment to look over as you work
to optimize your operations.
Demonstrations
Pasta's amazing versatility will
be on display in our Demonstration
Area. We'll bring in renowned chefs
from the Northeast to show you
popular and profitable dishes and
talk about the recipe formation,
pricing strategy and preparation tips
that make them menu winners.

Competitions
Competitions

The Caputo Cup, which since
2015 has crowned winners in
Neapolitan and New York-style pizza
at annual competitions in New York
City, will be held in 2017 exclusively
at our event. Competitors from
throughout the U.S. bake off in front
of a panel of judges - and you'll be
able to see how some of the best in
the business prepare their pizzas.
Education
We've developed a team of
thought leaders from the restaurant
industry willing to share best
practices and tools that have made
their businesses models of success.
You can sit in and learn new
marketing, profit-building techniques
to boost your pizzeria's bottom line.

We're planning to crown the
makers of the best pasta dishes
in the Northeast during the event.
Attendees can watch competitors
prepare their entries and even taste
them after they've been presented
to the judges.
Education
Learn how to better market and
operate your restaurant so you can
increase sales and draw in new
customers. Our keynote speakers
and School of Pizzeria Management
workshop instructors are industry
professionals who know what works
and how to implement tactics at the
store level.
