Meet Top Pizza and Pasta Restaurant Owners
Our Attendees Are Ready to Buy

The 2018 Pizza & Pasta Northeast® restaurant trade show show will incorporate a blend of food demonstrations, contests and education sessions to augment an exhibit hall showcasing top suppliers for both of these strong foodservice segments. The show will be held October 3-4, 2018, at the Atlantic City Convention Center, Atlantic City, NJ, just 10 minutes from Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, and just an hour drive from the Philadelphia International Airport. Atlantic City was chosen for several reasons, including its central location on the East Coast, access to the largest concentration of pizzerias and Italian restaurants in the U.S., a top-notch convention center and affordable first-class hotel and dining options.

The 2017 Pizza & Pasta Northeast show was a huge success with approximately 2,500 buyers in attendance. Pizza & Pasta Northeast is a one-stop shop for everything you need for a restaurant or pizzeria. On the show floor Italian and pizza-concept restaurant owners will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with more than 200 leading national and regional industry suppliers. Attendees will visit and buy from restaurant wholesale suppliers, manufacturers of commercial and pizza ovens and vendors of online ordering systems and POS systems. As well as find resources for pizza and pasta ingredients, double zero, gluten-free and other best flours, and other essentials for operating a profitable business.

Show organizers integrated a strong pasta component as part of the experience for both Italian restaurateurs and pizzeria owners and operators.

The New England region combined with Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Washington, D.C. is home to more than 28,000 Italian restaurants and pizzerias, making this region No. 1 in the U.S. in terms of the total number of pizzerias and Italian restaurants. This means one-third of the country’s operators, generating 30 percent of the industry’s revenue, are located in one tightly condensed geographic area.
