“We represent one of the industries that has endured centuries of success and years of failure. It is an industry where we work together; help each other; stand up for each other. Together we become stronger and we will no doubt overcome the current social and economic devastation” – shares Stanislava Blagoeva – MD of the European Pizza and Pasta Show – “The pizzaioli and all our chefs are tough people, they keep our traditions and build on them, creating the future of new and exciting dining culture throughout the world. The European Pizza and Pasta Show is the only event you can meet suppliers, buyers and creators in one place at the same time at the end of 2020.”

Simon Mills, Executive Director – Exhibitions at ExCeL London said: “We’re very excited that the European Pizza and Pasta Show is coming to ExCeL London this November. Business to business events like this offer their respective industries a fantastic opportunity to get back on track by showcasing products and innovations, buyers meeting sellers and for the knowledge, insight and experience that is shared. The team behind the show have our full backing and we look forward to welcoming this resilient industry to ExCeL.”

Jim Winship, Director of PAPA, comments: “The roots of our industry are as old as mankind, and I’m sure the resilience that has kept our sector going through history we will help emerge us from 2020 all the stronger. Taking place in November, the European Pizza and Pasta Show provides a perfect opportunity to get our sector back together. To coincide with the show we will also be celebrating some of the great work that has been done by the industry through the Coronavirus crisis at The annual Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Industry Awards Dinner at the Royal Lancaster Hotel on 12th November 2020.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the show and the dinner to celebrate the end of this extra ordinary year!”
