The first Pizza Executive Summit, slated to be held June 8-9 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, will bring together a select group of top executives from the pizza industry for two days of networking, workgroup sessions and an exchange of ideas and innovations on the industry's top strategic issues.
The theme of the Summit is "Evolution of the Modern Pizza Business." The invitation-only event is free to qualified attendees.
"Our goal is to bring together an experienced group of professionals whose common interests and concerns are brought to the table for open discussion," said Paul Barron, executive vice president of NetWorld Alliance, the organizer of the Pizza Executive Summit. "Unlike other conferences, we won't deliver boring speeches or keynotes. Instead, you will be part of the action from minute one."
NetWorld Alliance is the publisher of Pizza Marketplace.
The meeting will be structured around a series of four collaborative sessions. Each session will last 90 minutes and consist of a specific topic followed by a small group discussion.
