The 2021 Pizza Expo & Artisan Bakery Expo team has decided to postpone their Las Vegas show until August. Below is the letter that they have sent out:
“Dear Pizzeria & Artisan Bakery Communities,
After closely monitoring the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and speaking at length with our exhibitors, attendees, and the local host facilities, we have decided to postpone the June 2021 Pizza and Bakery Expos.
The new dates for the co-located events are Tuesday, August 17 through Thursday, August 19 in the Central Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV. This postponement is due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including current government restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by the state of Nevada and other government and public health authorities; the fact that the LVCC currently remains closed; and the various travel restrictions affecting attendees and participating companies.
“Our communities are incredibly eager to come together again in person. We appreciate your continued patience and are committed to bringing our community back together when it is safe and possible to do so,” said Bill Oakley, Group Show Director. “We feel the additional time will allow both exhibitors and attendees of Int’l Pizza Expo and Int’l Artisan Bakery Expo more time to make plans for live participation in Las Vegas.”
Our mission is providing networking and educational opportunities for independent pizzerias, bakeries and their suppliers. To this end, www.pizzaexpo365.com is our online platform that serves pizzeria owners and operators year-round as a complete resource to network, research, learn, and connect with the community.
We appreciate your ongoing loyalty to Int’l Pizza Expo and Int’l Artisan Bakery Expo and thank you in advance for your understanding. The information on our website will be promptly updated and further announcements regarding the August 17-19, 2021 edition will be posted in due course.”
