Busy food and beverage tourism professionals need a place where we can congregate, explore and network with other professionals in our industry. LinkedIn is the world's business rolodex and it doesn't meet our industry's needs on many levels. Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat are consumer-oriented and drooling over food porn just isn't a substitute for quality B2B networking among our industry's professionals.
Join the world's fastest growing sector of the tourism industry by joining the World Food Travel Association. Professionals typically join our Association for our education, research, networking, discussions and events. Our "membership" is a little different than what you might expect with other organizations. Food and beverage tourism education is our cornerstone; we are not a trade association and we don't lobby.
Increasing visitor arrivals drives economic development, not just in the obvious places like hotels, tours and restaurants, but also with tasting rooms, food/ drink retail purchases (retail), food/ drink events and much more. Even if you think you might not fit within the food tourism industry, think again. More visitors = more sales + more jobs + more taxes. The math is simple really.
Join now and we'll help you to get your "slice of the pie".
