With a revered passion for pizza, the best pizza and nothing but pizza, we here at Grey Block Pizza just had to knead out a few lines about this year’s Pizza Expo 2014 in Las Vegas. Held annually for the past 30 years, the International Pizza Expo® has got to be the world’s most renowned pizza event ever. With hundreds and hundreds of pizza industry specific suppliers on-site and in-session, people travel from far and wide for this annual pizza event to learn from (and network with) them all. Expo starts this coming Monday, March 24th through Thursday, March 27th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The lineup this year is filled with educational seminars, live demonstrations and delicious ingredients included; two separate keynote sessions, one featuring the popular TV personality, Donatella Arpaia (Celebrity Chef, “Iron Chef” Judge and pizzeria owner) and the second by Sal Basile and Francis Garcia (multi-location pizzeria owners and hosts of the Cooking Channel Series, “Pizza Cuz”); a Genesis BBQ spokesperson presentation by L.A. Dodgers pitcher, Ryu, Hyun Jin; the famous World Pizza Games®; the International Pizza Challenge™ and, last but certainly not least, a 30th Birthday Party to celebrate 3 decades of ongoing pizza affair with the International Pizza Expo®. Delectable!
What’s better than pizza, some might ask? Beer and pizza, some might say! With all good things pizza this year at the Pizza Expo, there’s also the Craft Beer Pavilion which includes craft beer samples as well as insights on how pizzeria operators can better improve their beer list offering with elite U.S. craft brews. Just like how smaller, more authentic pizza shops truly stand out among the larger, commercial grade pizza companies, so too do smaller, high quality craft brewers compare with the larger, more mass produced beer companies out there. Truth.
Although we personally can not be there in attendance this year, we are sending our warmest regards to all – may the pizza be with you. Enjoy.
