This 4th edition of the World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism specifically focused on harnessing the power of technology as a driver for sustainable growth. It presented an excellent opportunity for leading experts in gastronomy tourism to discuss currents trends and challenges in the sector, exchange best practices and inspire discussion on intercultural dialogue, gastro diplomacy, and the importance of technology for sustainable gastronomy tourism. Like previous editions of the UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism, this forum explored gastronomy as the essence of culture and an element of intangible heritage and the interrelation between gastronomy and tourism that can enhance sustainable local development.
