The European Commission organises the food-tourism week in the framework of EXPO, in Milan. The ever-growing interest in gastronomy provides a unique opportunity for both tourism and food industries.

28 September: Conference on food tourism

Morning: a conference will cover three panels:

  1. Food-tourism: data and prospects. The aim is to bring together the most relevant European and international organisations implementing tourism-related policies and invite them to highlight the trends in food-tourism.
  2. Tourism as a driver to promote gastronomy and local food production. Tourism can boost local food production and bring a new awareness about culinary traditions. It can help tourists, as well as local communities, to better understand the history and identity of a place.
  3. How gastronomy can enhance the reputation of destinations. By reversing the perspective it's possible to look at how gastronomy can enhance the reputation of a destination. Food fairs and festivals are good means for promoting tourism.

Afternoon: Food&Wine tourism B2B. 100 European organizations, including consortiums, product clubs, incoming agencies, local tourist systems, wine routes, hotel and other hospitality groups and chains will meet 50 organizations from extra-European countries to find new patterns for cooperation in the sector of food-tourism.
