As a combined pizza and ice cream show, NAPICS is the nation’s largest of its kind. Created 13 years ago by actual owners of pizza and ice cream shops, its mission has centered on helping professionals help each other. This aim exposes pizza and ice cream pros to top products, expert advice and in-depth peer networking. Attendees tell us they return as much for the conference as they do to see the friends they make each year.
Detailed seminars given by industry experts address every aspect of running a pizzeria or ice cream shop, and veteran attendees know to come ready to take notes! Our carefully selected exhibitor base provides only the products such professionals need to build their businesses, and there’s ample time to brows the exhibit hall to ask questions of product experts. NAPICS is the tradeshow for building relationships the old-fashioned way: face to face and friend to friend.
