The European Pizza & Pasta Show
18-19 October 2021, Olympia London
Press Release, November 2020

After being forced to take a year out due to the pandemic, the European Pizza & Pasta Show (EPPS) is set to return in October 2021 to Olympia Exhibition Centre, London with plans for a bigger event with more cooking programmes and competitions.

The show, which is now 5 years old and which is supported by The Pizza Pasta & Italian Food Association (PAPA), will feature a broad range of exhibitors from around the world covering all sectors of the market, from Italian restaurants to pizza delivery.

As well as showcasing some of the innovations that have emerged during the lockdowns of 2020, the show will provide a much needed opportunity for this £4 billion UK industry to get together with opportunities for renewing contacts and networking.    It will also provide the backdrop for the finals of the UK Pizza Chef of the Year competitions.

Now well established as the premier exhibition for the European pizza, pasta and Italian food industry, EPPS 2021 is expected to include exhibitors from the USA as well as from across Europe.

“I am very excited that the show has been able to secure key dates in October (18/19) at Olympia, which has always been our first choice as it provides the exhibitors and visitors easy access to central London and to the airports,” says Slava Blagoeva, the show’s director.  “The timing is also perfect as it is well ahead of the busy Christmas season.”

Says PAPA Director Jim Winship: “EPPS is the annual showcase for our industry – it was really missed in 2020. The return of the show in 2021 will provide a real fillip for everyone and an opportunity for us all to catch up again and start thinking positively about the future.”
