    160. LET'S GO TO PIZZA EXPO | Pizza EXPO

    Last month, we went to the 38th Annual Pizza Expo that was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
    If you are in the pizza industry, attending a Pizza Expo is a must! Just imagine that once-a-year we will have the opportunity to come together and meet other pizzeria operators and owners not just in the U.S. but also from other countries.
    So how do we get the most out of this Pizza Expo experience? With so much to see and learn, you need to understand and make your intentions clear as to what you want to get out of the expo. With this, you will have a plan of attack on which specific booths, seminars or demonstrations you want to visit and attend.
