There is the NAPICS Show in Columbus , Ohio every year around the end of January or mid-February. I used to participate in this show and I can say that it is a very good show to attend. Typically around 2,000 attendees, lots of vendors, as well as seminars and hands on instruction. The show is a lot cheaper than P.E. as are the seminar sessions.
To get more information on the NAPICS Show (North American Pizza and Ice Cream Show) contact the Ohio Restaurant Association for next years dates and details.

I will be in Vegas that week but only planning to buy the Thursday one day pass.  I'm thinking that one day should be enough, but I am open to comments.

I will need to see what the weather is like that week. I usually go to Vegas in March for the basketball tournament and to reward myself for surviving another brutal winter.  If the weather is nice, I don't want to be cooped up for three days.  That is why I am thinking of buying the Thursday only pass.  I look forward to stopping by the booth, but I doubt I can get in without a pass.

I look forward to Pizza Expo every year. One thing I learned on my first time is there is an overwhelming amount to take in. I have made it a habit to purchase the audio recordings of all the sessions so I can listen to them while doing mundane tasks around the shop. It is kind of like attending expo all year.

I have a few fun photos to share.

The first is my new favorite guy holding my new favorite pie (Jeff Smokevitch & Detroit Style).  I had more than a gentleman's helping of several of these bad boys.

Next is Tony Gemignani & Roberto Caporuscio talking & making neo pies

Third is the largest pie I've ever seen cooked - and all things considered, it turned out pretty well.

Finally, back to Detroit showing the workstation.

Thanks for the kind words.  We'll see what today brings.  I'm meeting with Meteorite this AM.  Stoners like Scott123 should find this interesting: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLREka5IlYRa57EN2nFx4bIdjKjEO9MvaW.

*eyes half closed* Heyyyyy, man.... Dave's not here, man.

Oh, sorry, not that kind of stoner  ;D

I have some thoughts on the Meteor oven, but, rather than derail this thread, perhaps we could start a new one?

I snuck into the security booth.

More photos
Below is John Conk's booth w/o John.  I thought he slept in, but his staff said he was making pizza with Jeff Varsano.  Sure enough, when I tracked him down, there they were.  Some may remember Jeff as a "Friend of the Forum" and generous contributor to the knowledge bank of making great pizza.  In person, he is really a great guy, IMO.   
Jeff makes my new favorite pie. :chef:
