Conferences today need to be exciting and innovative to be worth your time (and your money). That is exactly what we're bringing you with our 2018 Food & Beverage Tourism Innovation Summit. Innovation means just that. What are the issues, trends, new technologies and policies that will change the food and beverage industry as we know it? That's what we will be discussing at the Food Tourism Innovation Summit.
This isn't the conference for best practices, how-to's and case studies (those are important subject, but they are covered in our Online Food Travel Summit discussed above). The Food Tourism Innovation Summit is for forward-thinkers: early adopters, thought leaders, change agents, futurists, marketing strategists, analysts and journalists. If you're curious about the future and how to give your business, organization or destination a cutting edge, the Food Tourism Innovation Summit is the right place to be.
This one-day conference will be held in central London and is all about quality, not quantity. We're not offering you 50+ speakers, each of whom speaks for 7 minutes. Instead, we're bringing you 6-7 leading experts in their fields to discuss, in depth, their area of expertise and its impact on food and beverage tourism. What does the future hold? That's exactly what we'll discuss. The day will finish with a ceremony for the annual FoodTrekking Awards, which will be brought ahead for the 2019 awards year to coincide with the Innovation Summit.
Space will be very limited and therefore available registrations will be limited. Registration costs will also be kept affordable, despite the exclusive nature of the event. If you're interested in being notified when applications open, please sign up for our event announcements.
This event will NOT be recorded or broadcasted, so interested parties are encouraged to plan accordingly. The November 4 date was chosen specifically to precede the world-renowned World Travel Market (WTM) event, making it easy for WTM delegates to attend both events during the same trip, thereby minimizing travel expenses.
A very limited number of exhibitor opportunities are available. If your target market is thought leaders and media professionals in food, beverage, travel or hospitality, this is a perfect opportunity to introduce your business.
Sponsorship opportunities are available to help us to cover the cost of the venue, audiovisual equipment, speaker airfare and lodging, marketing and project management. Please get in touch at help(at)worldfoodtravel(dot)org to learn more.
