"Apart from being exceptionally well organised and held in the consummate foodie city of Portland, the entire conference was enriching, educational and fun. For casual foodies or industry professionals, the event is a valuable opportunity to connect with others, learn and celebrate a shared passion food, cuisine and travel."
~ Alanna Rodgers, Tru Bahamian Food Tours, Nassau, The Bahamas
