Food tourism is the act of traveling for a taste of place in order to get a sense of place.

At FoodTreX London, the Food Travel Innovation Summit, we  look at the customer journey, how food and drink can serve as the cornerstone of a destination’s brand, and of course how the rapid evolution of technology is changing literally everything we do. We look at all these topics and much, much more at FoodTreX London, the Food Travel Innovation Summit.

If you’re a professional that needs new information and ideas to get or stay ahead in food tourism, or you simply are interested in food tourism,  we recommend you to visit FoodTreX London, the Food Travel Innovation Summit on November 4, 2018.

Have you seen THIS previous post about the 2018 FoodTreX London, the Food Travel Innovation Summit?

If you’re still not convinced why this summit is for you, please read the 10 reasons below:

  1. NEW INFORMATION.
    The content is about innovation in food tourism, and NOT a repeat of what you’ve seen or heard elsewhere.
  2. NEW IDEAS.
    New information helps you to think of new ideas to help you get or stay ahead. You need new ideas to grow your business.
  3. QUALITY NETWORKING.
    Meet leading food travel industry influencers. Introduce yourself, present your business, create new partnerships.
  4. INTIMATE SETTING.
    Our goal is quality not quantity. Ticket sales are limited. And in an intimate group, it’s easier to meet the people you want.
  5. CONVENIENCE.
    Piggybacked with World Travel Market. No need to spend extra money or time on another trip.
  6. FOOD TRAVEL MATTERS.
    93% of visitors engage in some kind of unique or memorable food/drink experience other than eating out. Don’t be left out.
  7. FOOD TRAVEL IS CHANGING.
    You can’t just put a list of restaurants on your website or organize a food event. You need to know who to reach out to, and how to do it in order to be as effective as possible and capture more customers or visitors.
  8. AFFORDABLE.
    Other single day London conferences are in the £695-795 range. We don’t think quality education and networking should have to cost that much. FoodTrex registration is only £395 (plus VAT).
  9. WON’T BE RECORDED.
    If you want access to this great information, you’ll have to attend in person. We won’t be recording the sessions.
  10. LOCATION.
    Centrally located in London at the Grange St. Paul hotel, accessible easily and quickly by a variety of transport options.

Food- festivals & events

My favourite food festival is Krompirjeva noč, “potato night”, in the village of Veliko Ubeljsko in Slovenia. Of course it’s all about potatoes (The Dutch would love this festival!) It starts around noon and finishes somewhere the next morning. You pay a few euro’s entrance and can eat as much of the potato dishes as you want.  Throughout the day there are about a dozen of different (simple, peasant) potato dishes, from soup to fries with panceta, potato stew and much more. All neighbouring villages visit (you can find a “lost” Italian,they always find good food,but basically there will not be any tourists), there’s something to do for everyone, games for children, cards competitions for the men, music for the youth. The best fries I’ve ever had, were over here.

For which food- festivals or events is your region known? Where are you from?
