  • Do, or do not. There is no 'try'. Do pizza!

This is a blast!  We went last year and had a great time. 
If you go:
Don't waste your time or money on their hokey Monorail.  We stayed at the Monte Carlo (huge mistake) and bought a pass for the monorail.  Monte Carlo is at the terminal end of the tram but you can only access it by walking about 1000 miles through the cavernous MGM Casino and Hotel.

I suggest staying at a place closer to the convention center.

The event itself is well planned and has something for everyone.  You can cover the whole joint in a day if you don't watch the competitions.  The second day was the World Pizza Games championship and it is really cool.  We blew off the third day and invested in the Vegas infrastructure, so to speak.

Negative.  Hoping to make a run to Mesa this spring (Go Cubs!) and see the new Piazza addition.

I m considering on heading that way myself, I was going to exhibit again as I did a few years ago, But I think I would have more fun just visiting and checking out all the new products.
