It's Show Time

MARCH 27-30, 2017

REGISTRATION IS OPEN
PIZZAEXPO.COM

I

f you haven't
already registered for Pizza
Expo, now is the time
with BILL OAKLEY to go online at PizzaExpo.com and do
so. This is your only chance this year to
join more than 12,000 pizza professionals from around the globe to SEE,
SHOP, NETWORK and LEARN at
the World's largest all-pizza conference
and tradeshow. With an exhibit hall the
size of nearly six football fields, Pizza
Expo becomes a giant face-to-face
marketplace for independent and chain
restaurant owners seeking show specials
and discount pricing on the latest and
greatest ingredients, equipment and
technology.
Attendees are truly eager and
motivated to get into discussions about
new products, emerging trends and
what's working for their pizzerias, as
well as hot-button industry issues. This
year at Expo you'll be able to experience more than 1,200 booths, 500
exhibiting companies and 90 seminars,
demonstrations and networking events
all devoted to pizza. In fact, there is so
much to experience that you should
bring key members of your team,
so you can divide up the education
program and products you want to
see and compare. The interaction with
our attendees, exhibitors and industry
experts is sure to have a positive and
1 2 / P I Z Z AT O D AY. C O M / M A R C H 2 0 1 7

lasting effect on your pizzeria for years
to come.
We're expecting another recordbreaking attendance with more international visitors than ever, offering you an
immense opportunity to network and
establish connections with top suppliers
and thought leaders from the U.S. and
around the world. Where else but Pizza
Expo would you have the chance to
learn from a super-successful group of
fellow pizzeria operators? I'll tell you:
nowhere. In fact, I like to think our
pizza-focused education program alone
is worth the price of admission. The
bottom line is there's always something
new you can learn or see at Pizza Expo
that will improve your pizzeria and
boost your bottom line, whether you're
an industry veteran or just opening
your first store halfway across the
world.
Here are four tips to a successful show:
1. Get connected. Download the
Pizza Expo 2017 app. The Pizza Expo
mobile app helps you plan your entire
show to personalize your show agenda.
Search Pizza Expo 2017 in your app
store to download this FREE resource
today. Use Pizza Expo Connect to
network with exhibitors and colleagues
before, during and after Expo.
2. Plan your show agenda in

advance. Sign up for seminars and
the School of Pizzeria Management,
check out the keynotes and special
presentations, as well as our demonstration schedule.
3. Map out your floor plan. Take
time to review the exhibit hall floor
plan and exhibitor list before mapping
out your itinerary. You can find a listing
of new exhibitors and products in the
Pizza Expo Show Guide, as well as on
our mobile app and Web site.
4. Enjoy Las Vegas. When the
show floor closes, take advantage of all
Vegas has to offer. Use the Pizza Expo
mobile app to book tickets to a popular
show, make restaurant reservations or
check out other popular local attractions. Las Vegas will be bulging at the
seams with NCAA basketball fans,
Spring Breakers and pizza professionals, so it's always a good idea to make
your plans prior to your arrival.

We're always striving to improve the
show. With that in mind, I welcome
any suggestions that would enhance the
show and experience. Drop me a note
or post your thoughts on our Facebook
or Twitter pages. It's your show - we
want it to be the best you can imagine.
It's ALL pizza and it's all for YOU!
Sincerely,
Bill Oakley
