For over 30 years, Expo has been the largest gathering of pizza professionals, enthusiasts, and all-around pizza freaks in the world and has been featured on many television shows and is an indispensable event for independent operators to secure contracts, ingredients, equipment, and (importantly) new ideas.

Peter (“Pete”) Lachapelle is not only the Executive Editor at Pizza Today Magazine, but is also the “overlord” of Pizza Expo. In this riveting conversation, Pete shares the anguish of canceling last year’s Expo and talks about what lies ahead.
