Competitions & Events

Pizza & Pasta Northeast will be abuzz with competitions to crown the best pizza and pasta chefs in the region. They’ll be preparing their entries where all can see in the contest areas on the exhibit hall floor, adding to the excitement of the trade show.

Special events are planned in the morning on both show days before the exhibits open at 11 a.m. Making appearances at 10 a.m. will be, among others, Maria Pappalardo, co-founder of Rubirosa in New York City, and the Pizza Masters of Cooking Channel fame, Sal Basille and Francis Garcia. Also planned: a New Faces in the Pizza Pantheon roundtable discussion moderated by Scott Wiener, followed by a reception and networking session to take place after the exhibit hall closes on Tuesday afternoon.
