Event description

Description

FoodTrekking World is the World Food Travel Association's flagship international event for the trade taking place on Sunday April 2 (city tour and opening reception) and Monday-Tuesday April 3-4 (convention). FoodTrekking World is different from other culinary tourism/ food tourism/ wine tourism events because it is where business gets done! The core attraction of FoodTrekking World is two days of prearranged business to business matchmaking appointments, not to mention world-class education from industry leaders and plenty of fun and memorable networking events with quality food and drink. FoodTrekking World is for:

  • Food, beverage, travel and hospitality industry professionals, especially those engaged in marketing, sales, product development, meetings/conventions (MICE), strategy and operations

  • Destination marketers

  • Food/beverage tour operators and suppliers

  • Media professionals

  • Marketing, PR, advertising professionals

  • Academics and researchers looking for inspiration about new ideas and trends in the industry
