Inside This Issue

The European Pizza & Pasta Show, 13-15 November 2019, held at Olympia, is not only an established industry trade event, but also a unique live cooking show, that provides a stage for world renowned pizza and pasta chefs with competitions and master classes.

The Show, organised by IPR Events London Ltd in association with PAPA- Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association (UK) - and supported by Visit Britain and the International Pizza Senza Frontiere, brings together the best of the pizza and pasta industry, focusing on live cooking, rather than the traditional B2B trade show format, giving its participants a unique chance to demonstrate the best products in action.

The exhibition coincides with the fi nals of the Pizza and Pasta Chef Competitions and prestigious PAPA awards on November 14th.

Thanks to all the sponsors, competitors and judges involved in the Awards, which will be celebrated in style at the annual dinner at the Royal Lancaster London Hotel.
