Pizza Industry Data: What’s happening at the 2012 Pizza Expo

21 Feb

As we mentioned in an earlier post titled, “2012 Foodservice Trade Shows – Why are they valuable and which are CHD Expert attending,” we are really excited to attend the 2012 Pizza Expo in March – which is just around the corner. This year’s show is going to be full of excitement, especially to see what new restaurant industry insights we can gather regarding 2012 pizza industry data. Here is a quick list of activities that are going to be happening the 2012 Pizza Expo:

  • Learn to buy & sell pizza on the huge exhibition floor
  • Attend a pizza-making class and other types of demonstrations by top chefs
  • Learn from the best industry experts with over 75 educational sessions
  • Enter the international pizza-baking contest or feel free to just watch as part of the crowd
  • Watch the dramatic World Pizza Games® dough-spinning finals

In addition to all the action, the 2012 Pizza Expo will give foodservice operators, suppliers, distributers, and buyers the chance to come together in one place to talk about the business of Pizza. We are really excited to see what’s happening on the business side of the pizza business and to attend the seminars, workshops, power panels, and operator presentations. As reported on their website, here are some quick facts about the different sessions:

Seminars and Workshops: Among the 75-plus seminars and cooking demonstrations will be these special new sessions:

Power Panels: We’ll convene panels consisting of top operators who are on the cutting edge in their approaches to top-of-mind topics. You’ll be able to learn from the best on subjects including: finding and keeping the best pizzeria employees, building blocks for profitable menus and proven tactics for driving business with social media marketing.

Operator Presentations: We’ve gone to great lengths to bring in more pizza owners and operators to speak about how they excel in specific segments of the business. Among the operator-presenters appearing at Pizza Expo 2012 are: Peter Cooperstein of Amici’s on delivery, Glenn Cybulski of Seasons Pizzeria and Clovers Sports Bar on appetizers, Doug Ferriman of Crazy Dough’s on selling slices, Clayton Krueger of Farrelli’s on social media, George Hadjis of Oggi’s on building community partnerships—and several more.
