A Taste for Travel - International Conference of Gastronomy Tourism

30th January 2018

Categories: Our News

The 1st International Conference for Gastronomy Tourism will take place in Pamplona, Spain on the 22nd to 23rd February so there's still time to attend.

This two day event will provide an opportunity to learn from the world's leading experts in gastronomy tourism, share experiences and debate the current situation, the challenges faced world-wide and the future.  A variety of local products will also be showcased.  Navarra and the Basque Country regions can boast some of the most premium, unique and sustainable gastronomy tourism offerings in the world.

The rise of food tourism has experienced a steady increase in recent years to its status today as a global trend, fuelled by destinations promoting their own foodie experiences with the help of digital marketing.   Many of our own destinations have already grasped its potential and are actively enticing visitors to immerse themselves in the food culture of their destinations, understand the origins and attributes of their produce and benefit from a memorable experience that they're willing to share.  

The event will feature a panel of industry leaders who will talk about the benefits of Gastronomy Tourism and the opportunities to boost and diversify tourism and promote local economic development by elevating the activities of producers, chefs, restaurants and attractions.  A varied and comprehensive programme will allow delegates to explore a whole range of food tourism issues from the perspective of the destination (both urban and rural), chefs, cooking class providers, producers and tourists.  The Technology session will focus on the use of social media and the promotion and positioning of online reputation.
