New this year for the Pizza Executive Summit is an eclectic pizza tour of some of the most trailblazing, historic and enchanting pizza joints in the capital of that cuisine. Routes so far include deep-dish institutions such as Pizzeria Due and Gino's East, and legends in the making that include the new golden standard Neapolitan pizza sites.
The goal of the tour is to provide executives with a snapshot of the state of pizza, as well as help them brainstorm ideas they can implement in their own chains.
But perhaps the biggest highlight of the tour will come via a very special -- and far flung -- delivery: Streetza pizza, Milwaukee's famed pizza truck, will take to the streets of Chicago to deliver the food truck craze to attendees and lucky bystanders.
The Pizza Executive Summit, the industry's premier event for C-level executive learning and collaboration, will be held June 13 – 15 at Chicago's new Hotel Palomar, a Kimpton property. This year's theme is "Collaborate, Innovate, Accelerate," reflecting executives' abilities to take part in invigorating discussions, discover new ideas for achieving excellence, and eventually implementing these ideas to hasten success.
