Achieving your Goals at the Show

you arrive. Take advantage of downtime during your travels and jot down a few key objectives you’d like to accomplish at the show. Need to find a way to serve customers more efficiently?

Make a note of exhibitors with appealing marketing technology and plan to attend related training sessions led by top industry experts.
Schedule Key Meetings in Advance
With all the excitement and chaos, it’s easy to miss must-see exhibits at the show. Make plans with your contacts prior to attending the show to maximize the value of your time on the tradeshow floor. If you’re considering making a purchase at the show, be prepared with a list of questions to ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck.
Look for Partners with Solid Industry Experience
One of the hardest tasks a pizzeria owner has is picking out the right point-of-sale system for his or her restaurant - and doing it at the Pizza Expo can be overwhelming. You put a tremendous amount of work into customizing your menu and your brand to fit your customers – so demand the same from your partners! GRS offers a variety of innovative POS solutions, all designed to solve the unique challenges of pizza and delivery. Our expert consultants will guide you to the right solution based on your restaurant's needs, rather than pushing a one-size-fits-all choice.
Look for Tools That Help You Work Smart, Not Harder
Take a quick glance at the Pizza Expo show guide, and you’ll quickly see that most pizzeria owners and operators are interested finding proven methods to drive growth. As you consider new marketing strategies or mobile ordering technologies, look at how they fit into the overall picture at your shop. Juggling multiple vendors can be a frustrating and costly experience for your business and worst of all, difficult for your customers.
