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, Frank Pinello — from operating one of Brooklyn’s hottest pizzeria to starring in The Pizza Show, and Anthony Falco who is a world-renowned pizza consultant who first made a name for himself at the famed Roberta’s. Also planned: The Next Wave of American Pizza, Moderated by Scott Wiener — Our Man on the Street, will sit down for a Q&A with some young guns who are making big waves on the American pizza scene, which will be followed by a reception and networking session to take place after the exhibit hall closes on Tuesday afternoon.
